Lets be honest; keeping up with the latest literature isn't easy.

However having your ear to the floor for the latest developments in Emergency Medicine does make you realise that 'current practice' is really just a snap-shot of an ever evolving field and theres always more than one way of doing things.

Check out the following websites which do the hard work for you, highlighting and reviewing recent evidence and developments in blog and podcast format.

1) New in EM: Monthly literature summaries from the RCEM FOAMed Team. Podcasts & written summaries. COI: I sometimes contribute my tuppenceworth....

2) The Resus Room: Monthly Podcasts and blogs on recent evidence and guidelines. Also features a very handy journal scan each month.

3) First 10 EM: Articles of the month discussed.....monthly. Blog format with a accompanying podcast on Broome Docs.

4)  R&R Life in the Fast Lane: One of the original and best summaries out there. Blog.

Finally if you're keen to get abstracts delivered fresh to your email and filter them yourself then read this blog from the crew at St Emlyns on how to 'Drink from the Firehose'.
