Our local teaching hospital / trauma center / STEMI center / stroke center is putting on a new lecture series which focuses on STEMI and ROSC patients. It is very similar to the trauma seminar I’ve mentioned before and has a wealth of information.
It starts with our pre-hospital radio report and continues through the balance of care for the patients.
My favorite part was when the MD leading the presentation suggested everyone in the hall go to a blog for ECG knowledge.
Mine? Of course not, not until the seminar on fart jokes and grammar mistakes.
No, he directed us all to “Tom Boot-hill-aye” and his excellent work at EMS 12 Lead .com.
I will admit I sat a little taller in my chair when someone I know was mentioned as an expert in his field…and uses a blog to disseminate it.
Sure Tom Buothillet speaks nationwide about the importance of pre-hospital 12 lead ECGs, among other things, but also uses social media and video to make his message more powerful.
Tom recently debuted the London Ambulance Service episode of CODE:STEMI where he travels the world talking about EMS systems and their reaction to sudden cardiac chest pain and arrest.
Good work Tom, keep it up! I think you’ll get a few more hits from today’s session!
