PSA: Incidental Exposure to Fentanyl is NOT a thing!
Today's episode of the podcast is a myth busting on all the media reports about first responders overdosing by being exposed to fentanyl in the field by incidental contact. This is physically impossible and the misinformation out there has scared a lot of people, cost us lots of money in the form of hazmat responses and shutting down hospitals, and prevented overdose patients from getting the timely care they need in an emergency. This episode will systematically go through every argument why fentanyl is NOT harmful via incidental exposure and debunk these myths to give first responders one less thing to worry about while they do their frequently dangerous yet vital work.
Neonatal Resuscitation with Drs. Azif Safarulla, Dan McCollum, and Jessica Gancar
EM Basic is finally back with a new episode. Today's episode will discuss neonatal resuscitation with Dr. Azif Safarulla, a neonatologist at Augusta University. Dr. Dan McCollum and Dr. Jessica Gancar interview Dr. Safarulla on the nuts and bolts of running a successful neonatal resuscitation in the ED. These can be one of the scariest populations we have in the ED so it's important to have a rational and logical approach to quickly assess and intervene on our smallest and youngest patient population.
Big Picture Advice to New EM Interns
Just a few days after the new EM interns start, today's episode will talk about my advice to new EM interns. Think of this as the "big picture advice" or a 30,000 foot view of how to approach EM residency. I'll talk about 4 major big picture points to keep in mind as you start your residency. This will go way beyond arrive early, stay late, and always keep learning and expand on some big picture ideas of how to function well as a new intern.
