I’m lecturing at ACEP in Las Vegas this year. This is one of two lectures I’m giving there. If you are going to the conference and plan on coming to my lecture, don’t listen to this lecture; I’d rather you here the real one in person.
When I was a resident, every vent lecture either put me to sleep or left me dazed and bewildered. I gave a lecture of that ilk when I started working after fellowship–I had become part of the problem. I decided there must be a way to make vent management more understandable and if not interesting, at least bearable.
