We have just finished a great EM conference here in Singapore and we will bring you the videos and slides in the coming few weeks to months. Stay tuned!

Internet intuition this time comes from the realms of paeds, anaesthetics and some cardio thrown in. Always support the content providers.

  • Drain that kid - Good morsel on how big the drain should be in kids. Don't be cruel indeed!
  • Altitude vs attitude hypoxia - Andy buck delivers a great opinion on the contrast between aviation and EM.
  • Pre-oxing - the Rebel gives us a great summary of pe-ox techniques and its evidence. A must read for every intubator.
  • Sign,sign, everywhere-a-pediatric-vital-sign - A wonderful insight as to whether we're treating kids or "kidding" ourselves. Also a great homage to the metal group Tesla!
  • OPD the leaks! - a new way of handling large air leaks you say?
  • Heartbreak diagnosis - This morsel educates us on the ills and chills of myocarditis. A scary condition in our experience. The few that we have diagnosed (albeit later rather than sooner) have eventuated in poor outcomes and transplant lists. Respect this condition and treat shocked children EARLY!
