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.

Human and Psychological Factors in Airway Management - Dr. George Kovacs

There is a lot more to airway apart from getting the tube in. This is one of the best Airway lectures that I have ever come across. A must listen.

My take-home points:
  • Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
  • Goal is not just intubation but intubation without causing any damage.
  • Traditional direct laryngoscopy is not going anywhere.
