Kaiser Oakland Grand Rounds

Hello Kaiser Oakland!

I told you that I’d publish a list of all my references, so here we go:


I made my talk using Keynote. I controlled it using Apple’s Keynote Remote on my iPad.


I develop MDCalc and theNNT.


Uhm, you’re looking at my Tumblr blog right now.


A nice big list of Internet memes, from Wikipedia. Quickmeme is how I captioned my own memes for the talk. One does not simply walk into Mordor.

Examples of The Old and the New

Caroline Hampton Halsted: the first to use rubber gloves in the operating room was a fascinating read, and provided me with the Aseptic technique history I used, and who knew — the BMJ reprinted Lister’s seminal work, Antiseptic Principle in the Practice of Surgery.

Here’s Scott Weingart’s post on DSI and his article (that took over a year to get published in print!) from JEM, Preoxygenation, Reoxygenation, and Delayed Sequence Intubation in the Emergency Department (PubMed).

Best Use for a Bougie started from our Twitter conversation and then also became Michelle Lin’s Trick of the Trade.

Joel Topf - Kidney Boy - recount the story of D5W.

Seth Trueger (@mdaware), Scott Weingart (@emcrit), Chris Nickson (@precordialthump), high-quality medical education, emergency medicine (@HQMedEd), Michelle Lin (@M_Lin) and Ryan Radecki (@emlitofnote) all contributed to the Twitter conversation.

History of Medicine

The Becker Exhibits at Wash U provided me with images and information on the history of medical literature and journals. Stephen Abrahamson wrote a great article on CME: Research in Continuing Medical Education. An Historical Review.

Peer Review Concerns

There are a number of papers discussing and criticizing peer review; they include the papers I referenced in my talk: Quantitative analysis of sponsorship bias in economic studies of antidepressants and Classical peer review: an empty gun.

Cost of Journals
