FOAMcast is bringing you pearls from conferences we attend and, first up, the American College of Emergency Physicians annual meeting, ACEP14.  

Today's Pearls:

Emergency Physicians are like economists (We're more probalisticians than diagnosticians).

Cardiology pearls from Dr. Slovis - TTM to 36 Celsius post-arrest should be standard. Many people probably could benefit from caths after arrest, we're not sure exactly who at this point.

Patients returning from West Africa with fever probably have a regular virus, maybe malaria, but probably not ebola.

There's really not much use for glucagon in calcium channel blocker toxicity. Think supportive care, insulin-dextrose.

ETCO2 - it doesn't equal PaCO2 and it depends on cardiac output and alveolar ventilation

This week we review Dr. Scott Weingart's EMcrit episode, The First Prehospital REBOA

Then, we delve into core content pearls on the spleen using Rosenalli (Rosen's Emergency Medicine and Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Review Guide).  We cover splenic trauma and lacerations, post-splenectomy sepsis, and splenic sequestration.

Key Texts: Rosen's Chapter 46, 134 and Tintinalli Chapter 260.

As always, visit foamcast.org for show notes and the generously donated Rosh Review questions.

Thanks y'all!
