The RAGE team owe a lot to Mr EMCrit Scott Weingart. Together with Rob Orman of ERCast, he was instrumental in helping us get the technical aspects of podcasting in order as we found our podcasting feet.
Here is Weingart in action at smaccGOLD. His talk on ‘Cutting Edge Intra-Arrest Care’ is unequivocally essential listening for anyone who follows the RAGE podcast.
It is controversial.
He calls for resuscitationists to go beyond ACLS and function on the bleeding edge of critical care.
Critics will argue that early adoption is intensely dangerous. I am sure that some of the things Scott talks about will prove to be false in the fullness of time (I just can’t see vasopressin-epi-steroids being validated by bigger multi-center trials, for instance). Nevertheless, this is a masterful talk by a master resuscitationist.
If you resuscitate, you must listen to this talk!
