What is the EMCrit Blog and Podcast?
EMCrit is devoted to bring the best evidence-based care from the fields of critical care, resuscitation, and trauma and translate it for bedside use in the Emergency Department (ED). Every two weeks we post a full ~20-minute podcast. In between, the site gets filled with blogposts, links, and EMCrit Wees (minature podcasts). CME is available for EMCrit Podcasts.
To get the maximum benefit from the site, sign up for notifications in your email whenever we post a new podcast. We never spam or sell your address–EVER!

My name is Scott Weingart. Any posts listed as authored by EMCrit are by me. I am an ED Intensivist from New York City. I hold the degree of MD (Medical Doctor).

Attempting to Bring Upstairs Care, Downstairs One Podcast at a Time
My career goal and the purpose of this blog and podcast are to bring Upstairs Care, Downstairs–that is to bring ICU level care to the ED, so our patients can receive optimum treatment the moment they roll through the door. The audience for this forum is medical residents, attendings, nurses, paramedics, EMTs and students.
