A walk in the park!

Our firefighters and paramedics are true heroes, and I saw their heroics at work again today! My wife and I got a call that our daughter’s leg slipped through a seesaw at a local park, and she was stuck! Our babysitter had already called 911. I was on the phone with my wife as we both raced to Beaverbrook Park from our offices automatically thinking the worst. I was actually writing a story for #wsbtv across town and managed to pull up just as firefighters pulled up. (I was driving safely) After making sure she was OK, I had to document the great work they do for us EVERY DAY! My little girl handled this like a champ! Thank you to the crew at Fire Station 23 City of Atlanta Fire Rescue Department and the paramedics with GradyHealth !!! I post this as a thank you and a warning to all the parents who see this to please steer clear of this seesaw. Her little leg slipped right through, and they couldn’t get it out without the jaws of life! A firefighter said: “Engine work...it’s what we do.” What you do is look after us, and we thank you! Again, she’s OK!

Opinion | Fear, Loathing and Fentanyl Exposure

Doctors and toxicologists who have studied the issue say that most of the cases reported so far are best explained by the so-called nocebo effect, a phenomenon whereby people who believe they have encountered a toxic substance experience the expected symptoms of that exposure.

It’s almost impossible to ingest opioids by accident, but misinformation has triggered a panic about the risks.

ACLS Excuses for Causing Harm with Epinephrine - Rogue Medic

“If the goal is a pulse with more severe brain damage, then epinephrine is the way to go.
If the goal is increased survival without severe brain damage, we have to keep looking.
We should limit the use of epinephrine to well controlled research until there is evidence of improvement in outcomes that matter.
If this evidence is never found, our patients will not have been harmed by epinephrine.
If this evidence is eventually found, it is something that should have been insisted on decades ago. We should not use wishful thinking and surrogate endpoints to justify interventions that harm patients.”

The next ACLS guidelines are available for review and comment, before they are finalized. The Consensus on Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) are available for two guidelines: "Vasopressors in Adult Cardiac Arrest" "Advanc...

Ketamine, alprazolam, atropine, 80% Fio2 CPAP and cross your fingers. Incredible!

The cave rescue in Thailand was an incredible undertaking for many reasons. One of the most interesting aspects was the use of sedation to get the boys through a narrow cave, a significant amount of the time submerged. They could not swim and the risk of claustrophobia and panic was extremely high. Dr. Richard Harris, an Australian anesthesiologist and expert cave diver, facilitated this process. They used Ketamine, as well as alprazolam, in conjunction with CPAP. They were also given IM atropine to mitigate hypersalivation caused by ketamine. This is probably the pinnacle of procedural sedation in medical history, with the procedure being extrication from a cave.
A tweet below summarizing Dr. Harris’s description he gave at the recent Swan Trauma conference.
