This video podcast, Episode 96 – Cardiac Arrest Care Beyond ACLS Live from EMU, is awesome [link is to vidcast and show notes]. There are many great EM podcasts on Advanced ACLS management, but this one is incredible because it is so brief and so clear and yet covers everything.
Here is the link to the PDF show notes.
And what follows is from Dr. Helman’s introduction:
This is EM Cases Episode 96 – Beyond ACLS Cardiac Arrest – Live from EMU Conference 2017 with Jordan Chenkin.
I had the privilege of speaking at Canada’s largest EM Conference, North York General’s Emergency Medicine Update Conference. This year they celebrated their 30th conference in Toronto and rather than give a standard plenary talk, we decided to do a live podcast. Jordan Chenkin (who heads up the University of Toronto EM POCUS program and who has taught at the EM Cases Course as well as many other EM conferences), joined me in discussing 3 areas where your cardiac arrest management can be optimized beyond the ACLS protocols: refractory ventricular fibrillation, optimized pulse checks and PEA arrest. In these 3 areas, we show videos of a code team performing the ACLS way and then contrasted that with videos of optimized approaches. This meant that a video format had to used for the podcast. So, we are excited to share the first ever video podcast on EM Cases!
