A sincere THANK YOU.
Happy 150th mate! thanks for this great review and update episode! One suggestion is to consider updating your episode on sedation of the ED agitated patient. There has been some published material relevant to this in the last 2 yrs such as DORM II trial in Annals of EM last month Also a group of us down Under published the Surviving Sedation guidelines with full references and downloadable chart on my website Also a group of aeromedical services published a consensus statement on agitated patient in remote locations. As main author I have the site link referenced in the Surviving… Read more »
Congratulations on the sesquicentennial podcast Scott. We are a better community of docs due to your efforts.
Congratulations on your 150th Scott! I’ve been listening to EMCrit since medical school and now, with a good portion of my residency behind me, it still forms an integral part of my medical education – motivating me, enlightening me and inspiring me. Please keep up the great work and know that it makes a difference!
Scott – congrats on 150. An amazing accomplishment. Thanks for all the great education and the inspiration to get involved in spreading the education. I would like to address your comments on magnesium in asthma. Don’t know who that unnamed myth buster is but he sounds very handsome and dashing. I agree that Mag has no role in mild or moderate asthmatics. The 3Mg trial did show a benefit in severe asthmatics, though. Additionally, those with life-threatening asthma (i.e. the Crashing Asthmatic) aren’t included in studies like this. As with most of critical care, we have little to no useful… Read more »
I’ve just listened to the podcast and was about to comment but The Swami has covered it. Life-threatening asthmatics were excluded from 3Mg & I agree with Swami in that we all we can to avoid intubating this patient population.
If there’s a chance Mg will help, it’s pretty safe so I’m still doing it, with the salbutamol, ipratropium, steroids, NIV, ketamine. Congratulations on getting to 150, and here’s to 150 more!
I cant thank you enough for your audio teachings, I started listening while i was in paramedic school 5 or so years go, and i haven’t stopped since. Your podcast inspired me to go above and beyond the requirements of my class, it pushed me to update the protocol and practices of my local ambulance company, which still held the common practices of the past.
You continue to inspire colleagues and students in every level and position in emergency medicine.
Bring the upstairs care, downstairs. and bring the inside care, outside.
Cheers, and ill see you at SMACC
Scott, my patients thank you for educating me.
Count me in for the PHARM crisis manual. Sounds like an incredible project!
I have been listening to your podcast for about 18 months now, coming to it from ercast. I have been going at it for more then 20 years in the ED and your and Rob’s podcasts has really kept me going as I have entered my third (and hopefully last) decade as an emergency physician. I spent my first 5 years in academic practice but I found that what I really liked doing was practicing EM, so for 17 years I have been working at a busy high acuity community hospital. Your information is always useful and well vetted. You… Read more »
Awesome stuff Scott…. so glad you put so much effort into your pod casts.. makes a difference on so many levels man.
I have a question for you, and others as well. What are your thoughts on vasopressin manufacturing changes and decreased stability (new product only supposed to be good outside of refrigerator for 30 days)? There has been discussion at my hospital about removing it from crash carts because of the stability issue. I also believe it is underutilized at my hospital but that is beside the point.
Thanks for any insight!

No hate! I’ve been following emcrit religiously almost since day one. I can’t wait to see what the next 150 episodes bring.
I look forward to contributing to a prehospital/retrieval medicine book.

Prehospital and Retrieval Crisis Manual– do you hear takers? You hear at least one, right here, although I’m not a medic.
You have saved lives inside of hospitals and out, all around the world, with your work on this little website. Thank you.

I don’t necessarily agree with those proportions, but you’ve clearly got both covered.
what? I must have missed the proposal for a PHARM crisis manual? I thought it was a Resuscitation crisis manual?
sure thing to count me in if its a manual for the PHARM!
I was seriously writing you about the medic question in the RCM. Thanks for addressing this issue, and I agree that a pre-hospital crisis manual is needed as well. When the time comes, please consider me as well!.

If the Prehospital and Retrieval Crisis Manual is a go, count me in. I’d love to be a part of it!

Hey Scott, I am an avid listener to your podcast. I am a critical care paramedic working for a hospital based paramedic intercept service in a rural area. I am also a pre-med student and hope to complete an EM/IM/critical care residency. At my service we also work in the ED and respond to rapid responses throughout the hospital. In many cases we are responsible for airway management in the ED and on the hospital floors including ICU. We are often heavily involved in resuscitation of critically ill patients in the hospital. In the field we have progressive guidelines, perform… Read more »
Your podcast and blog have been fantastic. It has helped my practice in many ways.
There is interest in my multi-hospital system of trying to implement Joe Novak’s “pre-shift read files” concept. While I have implemented a version in my little corner of influence, we are looking at how to implement the concept across multiple EDs. There are many challenges to making it consistent, useful and brief. We definitely want to keep it out of the hands of corporate communications!
YES on the PHARM RCM. I have some ideas.
Thank you for, and congrats on, the 150 episodes of motivation, education and perspective you have given our lives.
