Whether JAFERD or a BAFERD, the emergency physician must be a “Jack of all trades, and master of resuscitation.” We may never fully understand the intricacies of the environments of our inpatient and outpatient consultant colleagues, but we MUST master that nebulous, gray emergent world in between where the crashing, undifferentiated patients require a calm mind and a steady hand.
Jack of all trades, and master of resuscitation.NMCP EM Class of 2019 Motto
This section provides concise, relevant information for emergent resuscitationists to utilize in the daily trenches and while sipping coffee later and considering the mysteries of the day. Each page will begin with the Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF), followed by a concise review of the foundational related material. Occasionally, there will be distilled summaries of emergency medicine paradigms that provide a deeper understanding of our world. As Einstein said,“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Many of these ideas, concepts, and practices have perplexed me, my goal is to understand them well and explain them simply to those coming behind. Enjoy.
Subpages contain succinct and informative elaborations on numerous topics including Damage Control Resuscitation, COVID-19, the Emergency Medicine Residency Survival Guide, writings about the Art of Medicine, and others.
