This week we covered:
- Two articles on stroke,
- A sober-up tent at the PGA as a way to decreased ED transfers,
- Abysmal concussion follow up, and
- A way to reduce errors by just by presenting cases to a peer in the ED.
Did you notice the theme? Not that this was intentional, but all had to do with the brain: ischemia, intoxication, trauma, or making your brain work better.
Speaking of the brain, if you want to go deeper on stroke, I suggest this in-depth review by emDocs or a shorter version that Thomas Davis did on JF. Also emDocs has an outstanding post on concussion. From the sideline to the ED to return-to-play, this brief but comprehensive post is stuff we need to know.
Have a great weekend. Thanks for being a part of JF.
