Taşyürek: 5. Metatars Kırıkları

Yanlış olarak sıklıkla herhangi bir 5. metatars proksimal kırığına Jones kırığı denmektedir. 5. metatars proksimalinde iki farklı türde akut kırık oluşabilir ve Sir Robert Jones’un hangisini tarif ettiğine dair tartışma devam etmektedir. Terminolojiden daha önemli olan ise, iki kırığın da farklı mekanizma, tedavi ve prognozlarının olmasıdır. Akut kırıklardan olan Jones kırığının değişik tanımlamaları vardır; 4/5 metatars ...

Wireless Brain Sensor Provides New Capabilities for Neuroscience

wireless brain sensor Wireless Brain Sensor Provides New Capabilities for NeuroscienceModer brain-computer interfaces allow neuroscientists to study how brains operate and neurosurgeons are already trying out these devices to help severely disabled people regain some of their independence. Nevertheless, these brain implants are normally tethered to an external computer using wires because the amount of data they generate can be quite challenging for wireless transmission. An international team of researchers headed by a group at Brown University has developed a brain-computer interface capable of transmitting its readings to an external receiver at up to 200 megabits per second. This is on the order of what 802.11n wireless routers can deliver, but the new device does it using much less power. The transmitter actually remains outside the body, attached to the skull and connected via a small port to the implanted neurosensor. The receiver has to be kept within a few steps of the transmitter to obtain a strong signal, but this limitation is not an issue in most situation.

The researchers tested the system in animal models, demonstrating that it is capable of continuous high-rate data transmission using a single AA battery for more than 48 hours. It provides 100 discrete channels of data, weighs only 41 grams, and measures 5 cm on its longest side.

The researchers hope that the new capability will allow scientists to perform more complicated animal studies and that severely paralyzed people will be able to use it during daily activities to make their lives easier.

#FOAMed Review 24th Edition

Welcome to the twenty-fourth edition of the #FOAMed Review! The idea of the FOAMed review is to give you a digestible selection of reliable content from the online EM/CC world that you can fit into your busy weekly schedule. Each review will include highlights from the highest yield blog, podcast, video and web sources around. Over a year's span we will be sure to include topics from all core EM content areas...even the ones that may not be the coolest. Check out our indexing section #FOAMED REVIEW which allows you to view previous weekly reviews by edition or by selecting from CORD curriculum categories.

Onto the FOAMed. 

AIRWAY CHECKLISTS [VIDEO]: Another great SMACC Gold talk debating the utility of airway checklists. You will be entertained I guarantee. 

THE "SKI LIFT" TECHNIQUE [VIDEO]: If you perform procedural ultrasound, this i a brief, must-see video on a technique to improve your dynamic ultrasound guidance by Jason Nomura at Takeokun. 

LESS IS MORE [BLOG]: Ryan Radecki discusses the new JAMA article on BLS versus ALS for OHCA and turns out that less is more

HIP REDUCTION [PODCAST]: The 'Captain Morgan' technique (I did not make up this name) for hip dislocation reduction from Al Sacchetti. He makes it look so easy. 



PEDIATRIC CARDIOGENIC SHOCK [BLOG]: You may be an expert at managing the crashing heart failure patient, but what about the little one with a faulty ticker? Learn more about cardiogenic shock in pediatric patients at EM Docs. 


ANTICOAGULATION  [PODCAST]: FOAMcast with a fresh new podcast discussing a previous post from EM Nerd on the lack of evidence for dual anti-platelet therapy in ACS, as well as a core-content review of anticoagulation. 


PALYTOXIN  [BLOG]: If you like reading about sodium channel toxins and/or bad things that happen to patients when they eat seafood then this is the right post for you. Great, quick read on palytoxin, at The Poison Review. 


PRESERVING RENAL FUNCTION IN THE CRITICALLY ILL [BLOG]: It's time to think about the kidneys for a few minutes and review a few posts on renal-oriented resuscitation from Pulm Crit:

See you next week. 


Register for #EMSToday2015 win an iPad mini!

Here’s a blog post so promotional that it may crash Facebook’s throttling algorithm!


In case you weren’t aware, the EMS Today conference is back in Baltimore and is scheduled to take place  February 25-28, 2015. In my last blog post I wrote about some of the reasons I love Baltimore and why I believe it’s the “spiritual home” of EMS Today (even though I really enjoyed Washington, D.C.).

Have you been thinking about attending?

Good news! If you register through one of the JEMS/PennWell EMS blogs, you not only receive a $100.00 discount from the regular price ($15.00 in addition to the $85.00 early bird registration discount) but you will also be entered into a drawing to win an iPad mini!

If that sounds lame, think again, because the drawing will be limited to the just the folks who register through an EMS blog and there will be two drawings; one at the end of December and one at the end of January. As of today there are only three blogs participating (including EMS 12-Lead) so I’m guessing the odds will actually be pretty good for this type of drawing.

To enter, visit the (>>> registration page <<<) and enter the promo code EMS12LEAD during checkout.

It’s that easy! You will be automatically entered into the drawing. If one of our followers wins the iPad mini we will announce it here (and through our social media channels).


As a side-note, the 12-Lead ECG Challenge App looks amazing on iPad and iPad mini! The cost is only $5.99 and it makes a great Christmas gift! (Apple iOS, Android, Amazon, Web-Based). Educators can also use the app in the classroom setting or for continuing education! Contact Limmer Creative for details.

Remember to follow the #EMSToday2015 hashtag on Twitter! We’re hoping to arrange a meet-up!
