March 2013: Endocrine

EMRAPPodcastLogoper Matt:

“This month’s EBM conference will be discussing the use of single dose Etomidate for RSI in sepsis and it’s controversial association with increased mortality.  Attached are the two articles.  One is an RCT from an EM attending at Christ Hospital who was interviewed in the attached podcast.  The podcast is only 15 minutes and provides a good discussion on the intent of the study as well as it’s strengths/weaknesses.  The second article is a meta-analysis of some of the articles that have suggested an association between Etomidate and increased mortality.”

Papers:
March 2013- Paper #1 -Etomidate vs Midaz for RSI in Sepsis
