Cases from the Races

The RAGE team’s John Hinds gives the medical perspective on high speed motorcycle racing on closed private roads in Ireland at smaccGOLD. Of note, is the use of rapid response motorcycle medics to get to the scene fast, in the first few seconds of the dying process, to save lives.

This talk stole the show at SMACC, you are about to find out why.

Here is the audio (download mp3):

Here are the amazing slides:

  1. Sorry for going on so long… I snuck over to double up into an absent Joe Lex’s slot!

    That talk could easily go on for bloody hours though, I real had trouble chopping it down

  3. As I drove to work today I was fortunate to listen to your blog cast with Scott W. Thank you for your great cast I am always learning, but you have just raised the bar. I am a RN in a small community hospital, but I run in to things that if not for you and your kind I would be lost.
    Thank You so much for your teaching.

  4. John, great talk. I enjoyed you recent talks at SMACCUS as well. I wanted to ask you what agents you typically use for roadside RSI especially when you suspect head injuries. I know some HEMS now use a 3:2:1 approach of Fentanyl, Ketamine and Rocuronium while previously they used Etomidate and Suxamethonium. I have also heard for Ketamine and Rocuronium. Curious to hear your practice from the races. Respectfully.
