So in this episode we run through narrow complex tachycardias, not I hear you say a perfect visual topic for an audio platform like a podcast, but hold your horses…

No matter what your level, or your depth of understanding of narrow complex tachycardias, we really hope this will offer some extra knowledge and contemplation for both those of you, like us, that have been treating patient with NCT for decades, right through to those of you that are completely new to the topic.

We run through all the normal stuff like definitions, clinical context and electrical pathways. Then we have a think about those terms and concepts like node dependance, AVRT, AVNRT, WPW etc, and then we come back to the fundamentals of delivering excellent care and how we can use a structure of interpretation to decide how best to treat our patient both pre and in-hospital. 

We’ve tried to really nail down and describe some of the concepts in a way that should make this topic a lot easier to understand and most importantly help us all deliver excellent care.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Well we’ve got three really excellent papers to start off your new year with!

First up we take a look at the complication rates seen when performing a prehospital thoracostomy; how frequent are complications and what could this information hold in improving our ongoing practice?

Next up we take a look at an RCT on the use of Calcium in the context of cardiac arrest. Can it’s inotropic and vasopressor effects translate into better outcomes for our patients?

Lastly we take a look at another excellent RCT comparing the use of a bougie to a stylet in adult emergency intubations; which will lead to a great first pass success and will the results lead to a change in or practice and teaching?

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
