User Comment: For using PV cards download them as PDF's then use any PDF reader on your smartphone or tablet. You can also get them directly via Evernote. The topics will be searchable and easy to use at the bedside/with learners.
Brief Description: All NYC Emergency Medicine Conference, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of emergency medicine residents. Founded by a group of Emergency Medicine educators, ALL NYC EM sponsors biannual, free educational conferences for Emergency Medicine residents throughout New York City and the surrounding region.
User Comment: Some fantastic FOAMed from some outstanding EM educators such as Drs. David Newman, Ashley Shreves, Haney Mallemat and more. Hopefully, they continue to make some of these lectures available to us all.
Brief Description: Put together by the Clerkship Directors in EM group it is an excellent resource for the junior learner in EM. There are “approaches” to typical ER chief complaints, common ED diagnoses and a handy PDF guide for junior learners.
Brief Description: This is a site dedicated to showing emergency medicine practitioners how to care for acute wounds. The content ranges from basic techniques (eg. simple interrupted) to advanced (eg. running subcuticular sutures)
User Comment: Filled with pics and videos for teaching. What I liked the most steri strips suturing through for fragile skin, tegaderm shield over the eye when gluing, and the figure of 8 for nailbed repair. Additionally there are useful burn apps.
Brief Description:Put together by a group of EM physicians the focus is on providing timely and high-yield EM content. They have sections on new developments, oddities, myths and M & M cases.
User Comment:The content is well laid out with nice reviews on some important topics. The one caveat is that there is nothing "novel" about this blog which may cause it to get lost in the shuffle. Still worth taking a look at.
Brief Description: Based in the US. PAID website HIGHLY recommended for EM residents. Get free access to EMRAP, EM Abstracts, a number of review journals, membership in ACEP, Annals of EM, discounts on textbooks, lots of free study aids sent by mail.
Brief Description: Website by the same person who made MedCalc. Shows the NNT and NNH for many of the common interventions used in the ED ranging from the NNT for Lytics in STEMI to antivirals in Bell's Palsy.
Brief Description: This is a blog from Dr. Sean Fox and the goal of the blog is to encourage us to all enhance and refine the care of pediatric patients. Topics range from the most basic pediatric presentations to critically ill conditions.
User Comment: As a clinician who rarely sees pediatric patients anymore this website is great for review of core topics or even on-shift tips.
Brief Description: This is a very well done Radiology review website. It is organized by systems and each section has radiological images, figures and accompanying written material. The intended audience are radiologists and radiology residents so there is some detailed content.
User Comment: Have a look at this website called Radiology Assistant. It has some interesting teaching modules, including some paediatric ones! It is pretty high tech and I think meant for more rigorous teaching of radiology, but it looks pretty cool and good for adult CT and X-ray review. For those who are more high tech, there is an iPad and iPhone app for this.
Brief Description: From Dr. Cunningham (and his great shoulder reduction technique) it’s a nice review of the most common reduction techniques used in the ED. Unfortunately, the accompanying website seems to no longer be active.
SOCMOB – Standing on the Corner, minding my own business in the ER
Brief Description: This blog has a couple of goals. One is to address the many medical myths/pseudoaxioms that are out there and the second is addressing interesting topics in emergency medicine and critical care.
User Comment: The author of the blog is an EP from Calgary Dr. Chris Bond. There is some good general EM content, Calgary EM Journal Club and interestingly this was the same person who wrote that hilarious Diagnosis Wenkebach parody to some Justin Timberlake music.
