We cover two bits of FOAM,Emergency Medicine Literature of Note - Dr. Ryan Radecki - on the use of meclizine for vertigo and EMcrit - Dr. Scott Weingart on the HiNTs exam.
Then we delve into some of the problems with the HiNTs exam including it can only be performed on patients with continuous vertigo and that external validity is a major issue with HiNTs.
Then, we delve into core content on vertigo using Rosen’s Medicine (8e) Chapter 19, and Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide (7e) Chapter 164 “Vertigo and Dizziness."
Thanks for listening!
