FOAMcast - Emergency Medicine Core Content (general)

On this FOAMcastini (A tiny FOAMcast), we summarize our summaries of core content and free open access medical education (FOAM), covering:

Episode 1 - Cyanide and Carbon Monoxide Toxicity

Episode 2 - All things GU (Renal colic, urinary retention, infected stones)

Episode 3 - ENT (Bullous myringitis, ruptured tympanic membranes, auricular hematomas, and more).

This is our attempt at remembering these things ourselves and encouraging some spaced repetition. Thanks for listening and just remember, no need to FOAM it alone.
