Great Melbourne workshop in ultrasound guided nerve blocks and vascular access. You will be doing more of this in the prehospital and retrieval setting, if not ALREADY!

I’m currently away in Japan getting some skiing in, so I’m not up to much I terms of posting.
However, whilst waiting for my wife to return from a shopping rampage in Tokyo, I did catch this post over at the brilliant ScanCrit site about HEMS use of RSI in East Anglia.
It adds to the belief that I have long held: prehospital intubation is not bad if it is done well; it’s prehospital intubation done poorly that is bad.
While you are over at ScanCrit, check out the rest of the site, these guys (and gals?) post some excellent stuff.

It was a pleasure to catch up with Icelander-turned Londoner Dr Helgi Johannsson regarding the ‘Wrongfooted‘ case.
Helgi is a prolific blogger – using Social Media to disseminate both useful nuggets of clinical information under the #TGDed hashtag (trauma gas education) and also occasional trash tweets on the weekend. Follow him at @TraumaGasDoc.
I was intrigued by the ‘Wrongfooted‘ case posted by Helgi – a classic case of the WHO checklist not being used properly. Several important lessons from this case, not least the need to use checklists appropriately … and the power of Social Media to disseminate important safety messages. Contrast this with the failure to disseminate safety lessons from a nearly identical case, as articulated subsequently by medical director Dr Dermot O’Riordan – the frustration being that the lessons learned from Dermot’s case weren’t made available to a wider audience.
