The RAGE podcast is the Resuscitationist's Awesome Guide to Everything! RAGE is an audio podcast created by a team of specialist physicians from Australasia and the United States practicing in emergency medicine, intensive care and retrieval/ prehospital medicine. We are Dr Chris Nickson, Dr Cliff Reid, Dr Haney Mallemat, Dr Michaela Cartner and Dr Karel Habig. We bring an irreverent and educational ‘real world’ perspective to current research, core topics and controversies in critical care. RAGE features panel discussions, interviews with guest experts, shout outs and insights from #FOAMcc (FOAM is 'free open-access meducation') and the wider critical care-iverse, not to mention various quirky segments on medical history, trivia and more. Show notes for the podcast, featuring links and resources for further learning, and the podcast's disclaimer can be found at http://ragepodcast.com If you eat, breathe and sleep critical care... and you're awesome, you'll love RAGE :-)
