Another great talk from Essentials of Emergency Medicine 2012 – today. Cliff Reid from Resus.me again. This time he is debunking some of the myths (and my beliefs) about prehospital stay and play vs load and go.
Stay and play, +/- RSI, has actually been shown to get patients to theatre more quickly. And with less and less trauma being managed operatively, the rush to get patients to theatre is not so great as it used to be.
Our ambos are going to love this one.
