1. 28 years old woman comes in to your ED in cardiac arrest. Initial rhythm: asystole. 24 hours ago she began with shortness of breath and this morning, with chest pain. Now, she is dead in front of you...
    Is there a role for thrombolytics when treating a patient in cardiac arrest? Is there any theoretical benefits? Is there any evidence that this intervention might work or it is a waste of money and time?
    Hopefully you'll find this video useful!

  2. How do you decide if you are going to treat a patient with strep throat, or send a test to rule in or rule out the disease or just send him home on NSAIDs? What if instead of strep throat you are suspecting a pulmonary embolism, what do yo do?
    One of the key things before thinking in ordering a specific test, is assigning that particular disease PRETEST probability, and then knowing what your therapeutic and diagnostic threshold are for that specific disease. It is the only way of knowing if the test you ordered is good enough to rule in or rule out that disease!
    Hopefully you'll find this useful, c ya!

  3. Is there anything that tell us if our patient is going to end with severe neurologic disfunction after a cardiac arrest? If we find one, would be a great help, because we could save lots of resources to the health system, and we could tell the families early on what to expect with their patient. Unfortunately, we don't have a reliable predictor! We need to wait 72 hours before doing any accurate neurological prognosis! Before this deadline, we need to ensure perfusion, oxygen and sugar to that brain, in order to evaluate it later.
    We need EM specialists, committed with their patients in order to give them a real chance to survive! What we do, as Mel Herbert says, matter!

  4. Alcohol has different faces and we need to know them all!
    If you are in Emergency Medicine because you want to save lives, then you should see this video. Aortic dissection? AMI? Stroke? Meningococcemia? Why don't you focus on alcohol and the alcoholic patient? I promise you that you'll save a life more often!
    Don't try to understand or walk on your patient's shoes, I don't believe in empathy! You just need to have compassion for your patients, acknowledge them as another human being that's in distress and try to help!
    Thanks for your time and please, if you see the video, in your own words, write 2 ideas that you took home and share them!

  5. Resumen del día! sorry por el audio, pero no vine con los micrófonos!
    Es un resumen de lo que me pareció más importante o que por algún motivo me hizo click de todo lo que hablamos hoy.
    Excelente curso, altamente recomendable a todos los interesados en educación médica en medicina de urgencia.
    Espero que les guste y espero que me de la energía para hacer algo similar el resto de los días!
