Whilst the new #RESUS21 guidelines don’t introduce any significant changes, here are some take homes that I believe are worth highlighting. A thread....

#FOAMed #FOAMems #cardiacarrest #resuscitation
“Ambulance services should monitor staff exposure to resuscitation and low exposure should be addressed to increase experience”

It will be interesting to see if, and how, ambulance trusts follow this guidance.
“Adult patients with non-traumatic OHCA should be considered for transport to a cardiac arrest centre”

Pathways for OHCA in the U.K. have been variable. Will this stimulate more standardisation? Prehospital staff need to nail the post-ROSC care bundle. Transport times longer?

If I ran an #EMS Agency during #COVID19 I would:
1/x Talk to the staff, ask what their questions are and disseminate updates frequently.
The info is very dynamic, and there can be huge gaps between what’s disseminated to inhospital staff and prehospital staff.
2/x Ensure staff understand when to utilize PPE and how to don/doff it safely. We get in and out of the vehicle, from the pt compartment to the cab to drive and back again to bring the pt into the hospital. Do dry runs, this is clunky and exposure risk is highest during doffing.
3/x. Review and revise all protocols involving NIPPV, Nebs and BVMs.
Ensure that staff have the equipment to do those interventions safely or they know not to do them at all.

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

THREAD: Differential diagnosis of tachycardias can be tricky business! Here are some strategies to help keep you between the ditches. Hope you will like and share. #FOAMed #FOAMems #MedEd #CardioTwitter
1/ First let's look at the 2015 AHA ECC Guidelines tachycardia algorithm. It's fairly straight forward but there are some important concepts here that deserve some elaboration.
2/ In the first place we're asked to consider appropriateness of tachycardia for the clinical condition. This is really important! We don't want to attack the heart rhythm if it's a compensatory tachycardia! The second part causes a lot of confusion. What is significance of 150?
