Rank #4: Don't DSI...Rapid Sequence Airway (RSA)! - Darren Braude

Podcast cover
Read more

Rapid Sequence Airway (RSA) involves the same preparation and pharmacology as RSI with the immediate planned placement of an extraglottic device (EGD) instead of intubation. Like DSI, RSA is an alternative airway management strategy that may be ideal for preoxygenation of hypoxemic patients as well for prehospital and in-flight use. Depending on the chosen EGD, RSA can facilitate gastric decompression, positive pressure ventilation with PEEP delivered by a ventilator and endoscopic intubation. The speaker presents the evolution of this novel concept in New Mexico, reviews their clinical experience with RSA in both the prehospital and hospital settings and assesses the available literature.

Rank #10: The Aorta Will %$#@!& You UO - David Carr

Podcast cover
Read more

The talk focuses on why clinicians miss the diagnosis on aortic dissection. It breaks down the key pearls on history and physical exam that guide you into correctly suspecting a dissection. Aortic dissection is a challenging diagnosis that you can not afford to miss. The talk aims to give you the framework to avoid missing the diagnosis. I want to raise the bar so that the standard of care is not to miss a dissection when it presents atypically. The talk will also highlight strategies on what to do when you suspect the diagnosis. It will guide you to order the right imaging tests and begin the treatment promptly. Sit back and be ready to see dissections in a different light.

Rank #13: Airway management in Neurologic Emergencies (Pharmacology, etc) - Jordan Bonomo

Podcast cover
Read more

Neurologic airway manipulation is unforgiving; errors lead to hypoxia and secondary injury. Managing the airway with an eye towards success, the first time, every time, without allowing sats to drop below 90% is the holy grail of neuro airways. Selection of RSI techniques, DSI techniques, and pharmacologic management is critical for success. The TBI airway with ICP issues and the post tPA airway present unique problems and the failed extubation in the neurologic patient is as common as the day is long. We will explore the latest theories and data (if there are any) and debunk some common myths together during this session.

Poisons and novel agents are a moving target in the clinical arena. This talk begins with a historical look at decontamination and pitfalls that have been discovered along the way. The advent of intubation and critical care was a major boon in the improvement in mortality from poisoning. The Scandinavian Method is described and is an important lesion to this day. The rise of antidotes is mentioned.

Emerging drugs are highlighted in the context of where we have come from. The phenylethylamine compound structure and corresponding variants are described. The importance of the principles of supportive care as learned in the Scandinavian method is emphasized. Other emerging topics including synthetic cannabinoids, and anti-NMDA receptor antagonists are discussed. Emerging interventions of prescription naloxone, and ED ECMO are outlined. High vigilance for new agents, and innovative treatments will enable clinicians deal with these evolving trends.

Rank #20: Remembering Rory: Sepsis and Learning from Error - Jo Anna Leuck

Podcast cover
Read more

Rory Staunton was a healthy 12-year old boy, known for his smile and his work standing up for others. A simple fall during basketball practice caused an abrasion on his arm, which is the suspected beginning of a cascade of events that led to his death from sepsis. Rory was seen by both his pediatrician and a local emergency department, and was sent home with a diagnosis of a viral illness. He returned the next day in septic shock and died shortly thereafter. A review of the medical records revealed that there were errors that occurred during his emergency department visit. These errors were the focus of a controversial article in the New York Times, that included both details of the case, as well as the name of the physician that provided care. A backlash from the medical community occurred leading to multiple physician-written op-ed pieces, as well as over 1600 comments on the online version of the article. This talk will attempt to move away from the controversy of the actual article and instead focus on how these common errors could have occurred during any busy shift and what we can do to prevent them in the future. My intention in giving this talk is to continue to use this case to raise awareness of both pediatric sepsis and common medical error and hopefully lead to fewer outcomes like Rory’s.

The Power of Peer Feedback in Medicine

Podcast cover
Read more

In order to be as good as you can be (self actualisation) you need to understand your own performance and how you are seen in the world. Sadly you cannot do this alone. Arguably all the beliefs about yourself, your actions, your performance and even your own image are skewed, biased and incorrect. You cannot reach your peak without help. Healthcare is complex though. In the resus room decisions are often time critical and information light such that we cannot apply a simple rule as to what is good and what is bad. Similarly, who can judge success? Only those who understand our systems, our aims and what the difference between process and outcome is. That's where Peer Review comes in. As a tool it is a way of gaining insight into how you really perform in the real world. This talk explores the why, the when and gives tips on the how you can maximise the power of peer review in your clinical and education practice.

3 R’s of Sexual Assault in Critical Care

Podcast cover
Read more

Sexual assault affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men during their lifetime worldwide. It is more common than most medical issues we are trained to look for, despite this being a patient population we are going to see by virtue of the "anyone, anytime" nature of an emergency and critical care. Generous estimates find than only 20% of survivors present for medical care and may not disclose this initially in their visit. Look for it during public holidays, large parties or concerts, college or university frosh week, particularly in young women. Other scene awareness clues that a sexual assault may have occurred include sedation that does not match the substances taken or clinical level seen, ripped or missing clothing, or being separated from their group. Documenting your suspicions and findings is key - as this chart is more likely to go to court, but not for 2 years. Direct quotations of what was said by the patient or EMS, body diagrams for what was found, and your clinical decision making are the essentials. Physical findings may be absent or minimal; this does not mean that no assault took place! The discussion that you had with the patient around further treatment and legal options needs to be recorded. Care of a sexually assaulted patient is complex and can have long-lasting detrimental psychological effects if not done well. Referral to a specialized care program to bridge the gap between medical and legal in a patient-centred trauma-informed manner is best. Treating survivors with belief, support and humanity as you assist them with making an informed decision as to the next steps in their care is vital as the first step in healing.

Dishing out opioids in ED

Podcast cover
Read more

The rising death toll from our nation‚ opioid epidemic has been rivalled in modern history only by that at the peak of the AIDS epidemic in the early 1990s. Consider, in 1995 at the peak of the AIDS epidemic, 51,000 Americans died from the disease. In 2015, 52,000 died from drug overdoses. Emergency departments have stood at the front lines of both crises. As a speciality that prides itself on rising to the occasion at times of great need, our time to lead on this crisis is now. As a response, EDs nationwide are expanding their roles in the care of patients with opioid use disorder (OUD), and many have begun ED-MAT programs. In December of 2017, we launched the Get Waivered Campaign which aimed to get our physicians the DEA X waivers needed to be able to prescribe ED-MAT(buprenorphine) to patients coming to our hospital seeking recovery. In May of 2018, our ED instituted its first ED-MAT protocol and while greater than 90% of our attending physicians had their DEA-X waivers and were able to prescribe buprenorphine, we found that there remained an opportunity to increase the rate of MAT initiation in our ED. Through semi-structured interviews, we set out to examine the barriers to providers, use of our MAT initiation protocol and patients‚ willingness to seek help in obtaining OUD treatment in our ED. Our work has identified multiple barriers, affecting both providers and patients, that have limited wide-scale early adoption of our protocol. The barriers identified from our ED-MAT program‚ first year of operation and the interventions aimed at making the use of our ED-MAT protocol as effortless as possible may serve as useful lessons as other hospitals seek to lead by operationalizing their own ED-MAT programs.

The Great(est) Fluid Debate

Podcast cover
Read more

Resuscitation fluids save lives in humans with life-threatening hypovolaemia. The fluid of choice should have biochemical characteristics close to the type of fluid lost and replaced at a rate and volume sufficient to correct the severe fluid deficit. Then stop and consider the early use of catecholamines. There are few indications to give critically ill patients resuscitation fluids after 24 hours of admission. There is no place for synthetic colloids of non-physiological crystalloids. The effects of unnecessary fluids last well beyond the initial resuscitation period and are associated with adverse effects and harm to the patient. Fluids are toxic drugs and must be used with great care.

3D printing for Paediatric Anatomical models

Podcast cover
Read more

Coming soon to a hospital near you! 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that allows for the creation of objects with complex geometry and anatomy with unprecedented accessibility and ease. By developing anatomical models from patient-specific medical imaging for various treatment applications, medical 3D printing represents the next great leap in personalised medicine. In critical care, there are almost limitless possibilities for this new technology in simulation. However, current barriers to the widespread adoption of 3D printing in medicine include the lack of expertise among clinicians, the perceived costs and perceived inaccessibility of this technology. In giving this talk, I hope to demystify 3d printing by sharing my step-by-step guide on starting a 3D printing lab, by sharing my experiences and journey with this technology. I'll show you how you can start a 3D printing lab for less the average critical care physician's annual coffee budget.
