Meet Dr Jo Deverill, an emergency physician on Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. He is one of the co-authors of Life in the Fast Lane. I met him at SMACC 2013 and he is good fella.
Anyway he is on Twitter, @jodeverill and we had this conversation yesterday.
Jo- “All VLs fail”. Really? Can you justify this?
me- 🙂 I meant to say all VLs can fail..hence the screenshot of the Glidescope affected by EMP weapon
Jo- Surely you’re not saying we should keep DL in case of EMP weapon attack.
me- and the zombie apocalypse
Jo- Well it’s always a good idea to consider worst case scenarios! But I reckon DL will be obsolete before the decade is out.
me- u want to bet? 😉
Jo- Bet’s on! Jan 1st 2020. If any training ED in Qld is still using DL I will give you a personally engraved Mac laryngoscope.
me- done. Will post the bet on PHARM to immortalise it and set the countdown timer
