First10EM Journal Club: September 2017

Welcome back to another installation of my favourite FOAMed collaboration with Canada’s brightest – the one and only Dr Justin Morgenstern.

This month we will be discussing 9 papers and a few random clinical, curly cases.  As always the full text PDFs of the articles we will be discussing are linked below.  You can also read Justin’s full written analysis of the papers over at Articles of the Month on the Fist10EM blog.

Justin and I would appreciate your feedback on the podcast if you can spare 3 seconds.  We often wonder if we are saying too much, too little or not.  I am also interested in how many folk actually read the articles as part of the Journal club.  Please let us know how you feel about the podcast:
