This is a BIG end to the year here are just some of the topics: Backboards are dead!, the great MAC vs Miller debate, head eating fungi, an algorithmic approach to vascular access in kids, foam to stop hemorrhaging, serum tests of appendicitis diagnosis still suck, diazepam vs. lorazepam smackdown, landshark attack, shut that kid up please - but first check for badness, the faking patient that tries to die is SO embarrassing, send that appendicitis patient to the medical floor nothing for surgery to do here…and renal colic myths galore!

Rob O is back for an action packed EM:RAP! It used to be that marijuana was just for getting high, now it’s becoming a legit medicine.

Is there ever conflict in your ED? Never again, we say! What do prothrombin complex concentrate, altered mental status and master level wound care have in common? All get the special treatment in November EM:RAP. View chapters…
