I am an Emergency Medicine Consultant in the UK. The aim of this blog is to try and communicate useful learning points I have gleaned from treating patients with in the various ED’s I have had the fortune to work in. There is so much knowledge out there online to read thanks to #FOAMed. Most of the learning points in the posts have been handed down to me by people far more intelligent than I am!
People always say “don’t sweat the small stuff, concentrate on the bigger picture”. I say “Sweat the small stuff…”. This blog is about the importance of knowing as much as you can about every disease, equipment, processes and procedures you come across in everyday practice in the ED.
If one person reading the blog learns one thing that will help them in their clinical practice, then writing this blog has been worth it! Enjoy!
