The new Holy Grail of business, Customer Satisfaction — CSAT to her close friends — is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet customer expectations. In a marketplace where businesses compete for customers, CSAT is a key element of strategy.
Satisfied customers buy. They come back and buy more. They tell their friends, who’ll buy too. If satisfied, they’ll return and buy more. That’s gold for the bottom line. Hail the almighty dollar!
I’m an ER doc.
My customers are my patients. Since American healthcare is a business with its own shaky bottom line, though it looks like a bottomless pit,…

FOAM (Free Open Access Medical education) is all well and good. But for the best resources on the net you gotta pay a little money. The best educators out there deserve a little bit of remuneration for their time and effort. Websites like LITFL are amazing and great for a quick look-up. Especially on shift. But for proper learning, revising and building a knowledge base you can't start there.
I built this site to provide information and opportunities for the discussion of key topics in Emergency Medicine. It's also meant to serve as a resource for the medical students and residents I work with on a daily basis, but all are welcome to use the materials not password protected.
ALiEM is your digital connection to the cooperative world of EM. We strive to reshape medical education and academia in their evolution beyond the traditional classroom.

As I’m talking I realise that I spend a lot of time conversing with patients in unusual positions: upside down, talking to their backs, or during an invasive pelvic or rectal exam. But it’s all very matter-of-fact - like an art appraiser or a farmer inspecting sheep. We’re more hands on than other doctors - we often don’t have the luxury of knowing the patents beforehand or have information of previous examinations.
Our goals are to share up-to-date evidence-based medicine reviews and interesting cases, interpret cool ECGs and images, and drop some board review pearls. We’re having fun while gettin’ FOAMed.
Welcome to Crashing Patient; the foremost webtext on emergency medicine, critical care, and most importantly their intersection.
Instructive ECGs in instructive emergency medicine context.
EM in 5 is a series of 5 minute video lectures for all residents, medical students and learners in Emergency Medicine to access in the spirit of #FOAMed! Originally created as a live conference series for the University of Chicago EM Residency, we now bring you a new online 5 minute video each week with the hope to keep our hyperactive EM minds attentive while driving home some key points!

My career goal and the purpose of this blog and podcast are to bring Upstairs Care, Downstairs, that is to bring ICU level care to the ED, so our patients can receive optimum treatment the moment they roll through the door.
We are a group of seven emergency physicians who want to provide a truly current resource for the rapidly developing field of emergency medicine. We subscribe to the free, open-access medical education initiative, and our goal is to inform the global EM community with timely and high yield content about what providers like YOU are seeing and doing everyday in your local ED.
Hi there! This site is mainly created for my students - undergraduates and postgraduates - to facilitate teaching and learning purposes, to serve as additional learning materials, to share sample exam questions, etc etc. It is not primarily meant for general audience and you may find some of the images a bit disturbing [I have doctored them nonetheless] and you are always welcome to leave a comments or two :)

Welcome to First10EM, a FOAMed project where I plan to contemplate the necessary actions of the first 10 minutes in the resuscitation room for patients that I might encounter in the future. This is a site about resuscitation. It is about what to do when the sickest patients are wheeled through your door and it is about how to prepare yourself before you ever see those patients.

PonderMed’ is my passion project. I use it as a platform for reflection, idea-sharing, and clinical discussion. I’m particularly interested in #performance, #metacognition and #digitalhealth in the context of EM/critical care.
I hope this blog will create a space to foster critical thinking, free exchange of ideas, and constructive criticism as we collectively stumble through the challenge of caring for critically ill patients with limited information in a rapidly evolving world. The blog is also a nice way to provide asynchronous eduction for trainees and nurses - if we don't have enough time for discussion on rounds, the blog may explain the rationale behind the way I do things.
I’m Rada (like Prada without the P), aka Dr. Jones, and I’m just about to retire from Emergency Medicine. I’ve also worked as a doctor on cruise ships, a mechanical engineer, a play therapist, a translator and a Mary Kay lady. Before dusk I look just like everybody else but much to everybody’s consternation I speak like a vampire, since I lived most of my life in Transylvania. Steve imported us 20 years ago and his life has never been the same since. I’m planning to write a novel about the ER and another one about Dracula’s gay younger brother, but for now it’s just this blog.
REBEL EM stands for Rational Evidence Based Evaluation of Literature in Emergency Medicine. We cover a myriad of topics, primarily focusing on evidence-based clinical topics.

A peek behind the curtain.
Training in, and managing, the SRU is one of the crown jewels of our residency. It is where the sickest of the sick patients are found in our ED. It is a crucible, a test of knowledge and strength, and a true manifestation of the tripartite mission of our department: Leadership, Excellence, and Opportunity.
Welcome to The Poison Review, a critical update and evaluation of recent scientific literature, news stories, and cultural events related to the field of medical toxicology. Our interests are wide-ranging and eclectic, since we take our philosophy from Paracelsus, often called the father of toxicology: “All things are poison and nothing is without poison, only the dose permits something not to be poisonous.”
At its heart TheResusRoom is a podcast based site which can either be accessed by the webpage or via iTunes here. At least twice a month we will bring you podcasts on a variety of Emergency Medicine topics that you’ll use every day in and around the resus room, centered around evidenced based medicine and with reference to national and international guidelines. In addition we are now moving towards multidisciplinary authors and topics with our blog.

Welcome to the crazy world of ER nursing. The stories that come out of the ER can make you laugh, make you cry, and make you pissed. Sometimes all at the same time. ER RN's are a special breed and I do believe we all lean a little bit toward the insane side of reality.

What really happens in the emergency room.
There are great blogs for surviving long-term disasters or social upheavals, fantastic spots for lists of medical supplies to keep. There plenty of sites about medical and alternative care, explaining diseases and treatments. My website MyFamilyDoctorMag.com is one. But rare is the blog with information on what to do if you have a medical emergency and can’t get help. This site hopes to do this. It’s combination of science, improvisational medicine, and Grandma’s home remedies.
