ED Thursday Teaching

27 07 2013

as with our department – – with people calling in sick and lack of motivation (the tyranny of distance for some ; not being a trainee) or recreational leave : our attendance was minimal.

having said that : we had a great session!

1st session :


got grilled in the resus bay about the knobology and stuff.

The key messages taken away is to be aware of plateau pressures and hot to measure them.

Found some good links from the great LITFL crew courtesy of Chris Nickson :




Case presentations

few great cases : 1 about a rather rare cause for abdominal pain (epiploic appendigitis), 1 about Kawasaki’s and mine about perilunate dislocations.


Grand Rounds

had Dr Louise Cullen from RBWH presenting about chest pains (and the new diagnostic strategy to safely rule out the super duper low risk ones)



Exams in 20 days time ! EEEPS
