Chest Xrays

We order lots of imaging in emergency medicine, and during your clerkship, you may be expected to interpret any of these images for yourself. Obviously, you may not be able to perfectly interpret everything, and that’s OK. However, you absolutely HAVE to know how to interpret a chest X-ray. It is very high yield for your SLOE. In this episode I give you a basic approach using an ABCDEFG mnemonic.

Pregnancy Injury

For our last trauma episode, we will be covering the basic approach to injuries in pregnant women. These can be very stressful cases, but the good news is that the approach is very straight forward. It’s just 5 extra interventions you have to perform in addition to your normal trauma resuscitation.
