This is a screencast of a recent lecture I gave to some first year med students. It’s mainly to give the students some clinical info to keep their regular anatomy teaching relevant. It’s not designed to be a comprehensive intro to trauma in any way.

It’s longer than the usual podcasts so I’ve split into two parts.

006.2 – Spinal Cord Injury

Podcast cover
Read more

Here’s number 2. Let me know what you think

UPDATE:

The very smart and astute Chris Nickson points out that central cord syndrome normally presents with motor weakness in the distally (in the hands) rather than proximally in the case in the video.

My bad…

He is of course right and has a nice little mnemonic for remembering it MUD: Motor/Upper/Distal

And remember that the symptoms and signs are relative not absolute:

motor>sensory
upper>lower
distal> proximal

Based on the pure anatomy – with the corticospinal tracts arranged somatotopically with the highest spinal segments most medial – one would expect proximal weakness (C5,6 etc..) more than distal (C7-8, T1 etc…). But since when does the textbook play ball with reality! Maybe it’s just representative of the level of lesion in cervical cord (ie a lower lesion when the upper segments have already exited the cord) but it has me beat. Let me know if you have a better answer

Either way the more important thing is that central cord syndrome more usually presents with distal not proximal upper limb weakness.

Kudos to Chris for spotting it.

We’re back… after a few years hiatus (blame the children…) we have a series of podcasts on the hand. The hand needs some special anatomic attention for EM as we see so many injuries and their misdiagnosis and mismanagement has great potential for long term morbidity.

Back in March 2014 I had the pleasure of speaking at SMACC Gold in Australia. The whole thing was great fun and I’m sure you’re all aware it’s going to Chicago in May 2015 so be sure to be there. Indeed Registration opens tonight (in the UK at least) so check it out!!!

Every talk from the conference is coming out via the SMACC podcast so make sure you subscribe.

As my talk is so predominantly visual, it really needs the slides for it to make sense so I’ve included the slideset here and put the audio over the slides so you can get the feel of the talk.

SMACC 2014 presentation from Andrew Neill

For people interested in learning some more detailed neuroanatomy I’d strongly recommend headneckbrainspine.com

They’ve done what I’ve always wanted to do and have created scrolling, labelled radiology images that wonderfully demonstrate the anatomy in 3 dimensions. Really invaluable stuff.

Here’s a list of previous neuro related podcasts I’ve done:

046 | Sensory Innervation of the Foot

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back to the Anatomy for EM podcast. Today we cover the innervation of the foot through the lens of the ankle block.

So, yes this is another very much exam focused one. Ankle blocks are certainly handy but I always find that the foreign body is right on the overlapping border of all the territories and you end up having to block everything.

These days it might just be easier to an ultrasound guided sciatic and get everything you need but I digress…

045 | Sensory Innervation of the Ear

Podcast cover
Read more

I’m entering a few months prep for the UK and Ireland exit exam in Emergency Medicine: the FRCEM. I’ll be adding lots of little notes on pearls I’ve learned along the way. A lot of my revision is based around the Handbook of EM as a curriculum guide and review of contemporary, mainly UK guidelines. I also focus on the areas that I’m a bit sketchy on. With that in mind I hope they’re useful.

You can find more things on the FRCEM on this site here.

This one is special and has turned into an AFEM episode

This seems to be a favourite for examiners and not something i use commonly in real life

4 Nerves involved (the biggies in bold)

  • auricolotemporal [V3]
  • greater auricular [C2,3]
  • auricular branch of [X]
  • lesser occipital [C2]

Also note the names of the parts of the ear

The block (from the OHEM)

  • Greater Auricular
    • 1cm below ear lobe all the way from post border of SCM to angle of mandible
  • Lesser occipital
    • infiltrate just behind the ear
  • Auriculotemporal
    • just anterior to the EAM and tragus (watching out for the superficial temporal artery

Hi Guys, sorry for the big gap in posting. Life has a way of taking over as you all know.

I’m currently trying to introduce fascia iliaca blocks as part of routine care for patients in our department so i thought a podcast on some of the anatomy wouldn’t go a miss. If you want some light reading on the literature, then I’ve included a big list below. If you’re more practically orientated then I’d strongly recommend the following:

Ultrasound Podcast: Fem Nv Block

NYSORA: Fascia Iliaca Block.
