Centralisation of care for specialist services such as stroke, trauma and myocardial infarctions is becoming more and more common place. But where will it stop and what does it mean for the specialty of Emergency Medicine?

In this episode we have a look at a recent pilot RCT published in the journal of Resuscitation looking at the feasibility of setting up an bigger RCT to evaluate moving prehospital patients to a cardiac arrest centre. The paper itself is a great piece of work but the bigger discussion around the topic is also a really important point to consider.

Have a listen to the podcast, see what you think and please post you comments on the site for us all to see.

Enjoy!

Welcome back to Papers of the Month. March has given us some great papers.

We kick off with a couple of papers looking at rib fractures, associated morbidity and mortality and also looks at management of flail segments.

We then turn our attention to airway management and look at a paper reviewing the outcomes associated with patients who are intubated during resuscitation from cardiac arrest.

As ever we would highly encourage you to go and read the papers yourselves, these are only our takes on the literature and we would love to hear your thoughts below.

Enjoy
