About Me

My photo

I have completed bits of my EM training from India. Currently I am boarded with credentials from Christian Medical College, Vellore and also from the prestigious Royal College of Emergency Medicine, UK.  I am currently working in London as an A&E doctor, trying to appreciate the differences in the practise and culture of Emergency Medicine across different healthcare systems. I have always been an avid FOAMed supporter because FOAMed played an indispensable role during the days of my initial training. Through this blog, I aspire to disseminate knowledge and stay up to date with the EM literature.

Anaphylaxis - Now on the podcast !

Hi there!

Last week we dealt with anaphylaxis, now it is available on the podcast (15minutes).
This was a session which I took sometime back for the residents (The Flipped Classroom).

I still see shocked patients getting a trial of steroids/antihistaminics before epinephrine. Steroids/Antihistaminics work (if at all!) to prevent the biphasic reaction and relieve the skin symptoms.

Epinephrine is the DRUG of choice for anaphylaxis and it should be administered ASAP.

This podcast will give you an understanding about when and how to use epinephrine.

Listen to the podcast.
There is also a handout available.
