Same, working in the ICU right now and every time we get a patient I start thinking of all the things that need to be done.... then I realize that the ED did most of them already.

During my last year of residency I just read about the things that interested me, mostly the primary literature, and mostly spurred by actual patients. No qBanks etc. Surprisingly, I did the best on the ITE that year... but I feel you. SO hard to find the time and energy.

1 L of Normal Saline has the sodium load of 22 bags of chips - ABnormal saline. Stop the madness.

I agree and my practice is to give BS abx in undiff shock. But I wish we had more evidence. Evidence on early abx is so scarce...

gotta play devil's advocate here... Part of the reason so many people were put on ventilators was BECAUSE OF panic. We were told at my hospital that we COULD NOT do non-invasive ventilation on COVID+ pts. Tons of unnecessary tubes in retrospect and immeasurable iatrogenesis.

Often a DEEP space infection so skin findings may be underwhelming. Even if unimpressive vitals now, expect rapid decompensation and begin prepping for aggressive resuscitation. Goes without saying, outcomes mostly depend on surgical source control.

I think you mean heart failure is a *POCUS* diagnosis

My heart-lung physiology textbook is up and free for download. Please share widely; I hope someone, somewhere finds this useful.

Maybe more BiPAP and HFNC and less intubation.

shouldn't be a bloody procedure. Small or no scalpel nick. Only nick when you have dilator preloaded on wire. Immediate compression with gauze after dilation with CVL preloaded on wire advance. Experts do this with nearly no blood loss.
