More ICU Radiology from Dimity McCracken. Flesh-eating bacteria or faking it?
The post Radiology Case 19 appeared first on Intensive Care Network.
So listen up people! You’re doing cardiac arrest resuscitation all wrong! What’s wrong with you?!?! Ok, that’s a little harsh. We’re not really saying that at all. We just think, based on recent evidence and new technology, that it could be done a little better and we’re gonna explain what we mean. Accept our humble apologies for the rude beginning.
Also, BIG change to SonoNorway.com
. You all were rather adamant, and you’re getting your way. The course is being moved from the boat to an incredible location in Oslo. Go to Sononorway.com
for more information. There are a few spots left, but this is what people asked for, so those spots will be gone super quick.
We’ll have part 2 of this ultrasound guided resuscitation podcast up for you in no time. Check back soon!
