The RAGE team’s sphincters are progressively tightening as the pressure to perform at
smaccGOLD mounts… the conference is just a couple of weeks away.
Sydney HEMS submitted a fantastic
SimWars GOLD video entry — featuring quotations from HEMS speakers at the first SMACC conference, including RAGE’s Karel Habig and Cliff Reid.
Watch and be inspired…
Be inspired to train harder…
Be inspired to fight harder to save lives.
Wondering what to do while you’re waiting for RAGE Session Two to be released?
Here’s an option.
Mac Sweeney’s Top Ten Critical Care Papers for 2013 (includes links for further reading). I talked to Rob from Critical Care Reviews about his picks for the ten best trials in the intensive care literature for 2013. It is a fast paced and in depth discussion. I’m still suffering from the cortical burn!
Rob, along with all the RAGE team, will be at
smaccGOLD in March 2014. See you there!
The RAGE team tasters keep on coming…
Only one talk at
SMACC matched Cliff’s How to be a Hero for emotional impact.
It was this, by RAGE resusciteer Michelle Johnston. She took lessons from the classics to explore the physiology of inspiration.
As Michelle says, words have power.

Yep, here’s another RAGE team taster… Though, unfortunately I’m up next.
One of the dumbest things I’ve ever done was assign myself a spot at
SMACC to talk after Cliff’s amazing ‘ How to be a Hero‘ speech…
Oh well, the show must go on, eh.
This is what happened — my talk on how System I and System II thinking underpins clinical decision making and how we are affected by, and can overcome, cognitive biases:

Here’s another RAGE team taster, more Cliff Reid magic from
Biased though I may be, this is perhaps the greatest, most inspirational, and most emotionally powerful talk ever given on the art of resuscitation.
Watch the video to see what Cliff can teach us about ‘How to be a Hero’:

All of the RAGE team will be heavily involved in
smaccGOLD. Even Haney is flying out from the States to be part of it.
Various members of the RAGE team are organising the program, selecting the speakers, designing and running the workshops, as well as taking the stage for talks, panel discussions and other mind blowing events during the conference.
So be sure to take our conflict of interest into account when we say that
smaccGOLD is going to be AWESOME!
We really hope to meet you there. Come along for a meeting of friends who have never met before and the most inspiring educational experience you can have, at a conference like no other.
