ETM Course Podcast now live....

ETM Podcast Episode 1 – Minh Le Cong – Trauma Airway (part 1)

This is the very first episode of the Emergency Trauma Management Podcast, created for those who manage trauma in the Emergency Department.  In our first episode we are very lucky to have had the chance to interview airway guru and all around nice guy, Minh Le Cong.  Minh runs the fantastic Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine (PHARM) blog and podcast, and has a wealth of experience in trauma airway management.  He also helps run the RFDS Prehospital Anaesthesia & Airway Management Course.  In this episode, we talk about intubation in the head-injured patient, Minh’s favourite drug, Ketamine, dealing with cervical spine immobilisation and airway management, and some really great tips on managing the airway in patients with actual spinal injury.

Stay tuned for part 2, with more great airway pearls from Minh. If you enjoy the podcast, leave us a comment below (by clicking on “Comments”).

A Visit to the PHARM - Podcasting from the Northern Territory

Andy Buck and I in a resus bay at the Royal Darwin Hospital

What a way to cap an amazing week, working in the Northern Territory of Australia! I met up with Andy Buck from EDExam, and we recorded a podcast with none other than the king of pre-hospital critical care - Minh Le Cong over at the PHARM blog. The main discussion focussed around crash airways, as well as chest pain pathways.

Check out the podcast HERE.
