The year is drawing to a close and we have just one more chance to learn from my very wise, ex-Canadian friend Dr Justin Morgenstern. In this month’s episode, Justin and I discuss a bunch of papers. Topics include:
Paediatric plastic poop
OOHCA Airway options
Weingart’s suction failure
Cricoid pressure is not-non-inferior to nothing
a new nasal spray for SVT
How much insulin is sweet?
Parachutes: are they really worth the extra luggage fees?
As always the full text PDFs of these papers are included – just click on the title to get access and do the reading before you change your practice!
