Trending Talks of EMS

This is a general topic lecture based on some trending science in our field. It includes discussions on RSI where I redefine the terminology to follow the current trends and science which includes an emphasis on push dose pressers in certain situations. I also go into VS and focus on ETCO2 and Capillary refill time as a measure of perfusion. Other topics include fluid choice, ATLS terminology, blood products and administration and TXA. The conclusion is my “TikTok to do list of topics” which is a rapid fire statement and reasoning which addresses misconceptions, misunderstandings and dogma I see in my daily practice. I will be happy to add any topics your group feels are important but being your neighbor and flying into AL on occasion these seem to be common topics between our states.
