Best critical care resources for EM providers, as seen on FOAMest.com

Dominating the Vent Part I

This lecture offers a path to managing any patient on the ventilator in the ED. I have tried to simplify as much as possible while still maintaining an evidence-based approach.

Delayed Sequence Intubation (DSI)

This page is a compilation of all things Delayed Sequence Intubation (DSI) The Delayed Sequence Intubation (DSI) Publication is in Ann Emerg Med 2014 and i

Post-Intubation Package

There is a ton of stuff to do post-intubation besides confirming the tube and giving the team high-fives. Here is the post-intubation package to make it so.

How to Safely Intubate the Shocked Patient

A lecture from SMACC2013 on how not to kill the shocked patient when intubating

Great lecture very important to have a grasp on before going into these time critical situations.

Podcast 108 - How to Be a Hero with Cliff Reid

Scott Weingart: "This was my favorite lecture from SMACC 2013. If you are not moved and inspired then your heart is made of stone."

Podcast 138 - Vasopressor Basics

There is a ton to speak about regarding vasopressors, but before we get to the edge cases, we need to set-up a foundation.

The Sick and the Dead: Evidence-Based Trauma Resuscitation in 2016 by Hicks & Petrosoniak

The sick and the dead from SMACCdub

The science of trauma resuscitation has undergone a fairly massive evolution in the past decade. This talk was our attempt to summarize the best-of-the-best in trauma literature from the past several years, and package it into a series of clinically useful recommendations (i.e., our evidence-based opinions). This talk was live peer reviewed by trauma surgery deity Karim Brohi, who gave us a thumb’s up (although you kind of had to be there).

EMCrit 201 - Deeper on Vasopressors and Athos 3 with Mink Chawla

In Ep. 138, we discussed the basics of vasopressor and inotrope use. During that podcast, I promised we would go more in-depth in subsequent episodes–this is one of those that will fulfill that promise. Angiotensin II is a new (old) player on the field. To discuss this topic and more on vasopressors, I asked Dr. Mink Chawla to join me on the podcast.

EMCrit Podcast 205 - Push-Dose Pressors Update

"Today, an update on Push-Dose Pressors. I coined the name Push-Dose Pressors (PDPs) way back on episode 6. The idea was not new, anesthesiologists and resus docs have been using bolus-dose vasopressors for decades. I just thought the name was dumb, these are not boluses in the way I have always thought of them (a brief iv drip). I also thought it was crazy that the concept had not really penetrated very far into emergency medicine and the ICU–at least in the States. My prehospital doc friends told me it was common in their world. Since the podcast, I have received 100s of emails describing the use of PDPs to lifesaving effect (or at least code-preventing), but there has been scant published literature on this technique in EM. Recently that has all changed."
