Airway POCUS Spoon Feed:

Upper airway ultrasound (UA-US) may eventually help us predict if a patient will have a difficult laryngoscopy ahead of time. However, this is not ready for prime-time, and more studies are needed.

ECPR vs. ACLS Spoon Feed:

Early extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR, aka ECMO) was not superior to standard advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) for 180-day survival with good neurological outcome, but there may be a silver lining.

Hi! I've been practicing emergency medicine for over 20 years and started JournalFeed. I'm the Chief Spoon-Feeder, which means I either write or edit everything that's posted on the JournalFeed blog. But Nick totally runs the show with the podcast!
