Iain and Simon chat through our top ten trauma papers for 2016. Lots here for anyone who is interested in trauma including whole body CT, traumatic cardiac arrest, neurosurgery in severe head injury and much more. As ever we'd suggest you read the original papers, references for which along with a blogpost can all be found here http://stemlynsblog.org/top-10-trauma-papers-2016-st-emlyns/
Robert Lloyd aka @ponderingEM from the Pondering EM blog joins Simon to talk about his experiences in a South African ED. This is an amazing tribute to the work our South African colleagues and how an Englishman found a way to adapt to the challenges (and there are many) of SA EM practice.
You can find his references for the talk here.
Ross Fisher, consultant paediatric surgeon and lead for TARNlet joins Simon Carley at the London Trauma Conference to discuss the challenges in managing paediatric trauma in the UK.
Iain Beardsell joins Tim Coats, chair of the UK Trauma Audit Network, to discuss the role of trauma units within major trauma networks.
Simon and Ross Fisher from Sheffield discuss the emerging role of paediatric surgeons in trauma. This podcast was recorded at the London Trauma Conference (so sorry for a bit of background noise at times).
has become our pre-Christmas custom, Iain and I have been hanging out
at the fabulous London Trauma Conference, hearing about advances and
controversies in trauma care and tracking down some of the speakers to
find out exactly what they really think (and recording it, for podcasts we'll release in due course).
conference extends over four days, incorporating the Air Ambulance and
Prehospital Day and the Cardiac Arrest Symposium; unfortunately we can't
stick around for those but our colleagues over at the RCEM FOAM network will be podcasting from those days too, so keep an eye on their site and podcast feed too.
We are truly honored to listen and learn from Dr Youri Yordanov from Paris. Youri was the senior emergency physician on duty on the 13/11/15 during the brutal and terrifying terrorist attacks in Paris. Here he joins St.Emlyn's to discuss how they managed a mass casualty incident with lessons for us all.
There is no doubt that without the skills, preparation and response of Youri, his ED team, the wider hospital and the emergency service in general the death rate would have been much worse.
Thanks Youri for your wisdom and reflections.
