#FOAMed of the Week: Amputation via @PHEM_cast

Pre-hospital Amputation thankfully doesn't happen very often. When it does there isn't likely to be time to google it....

Thinking the procedure through and getting to know the equipment is essential to keeping a cool head when the adrenaline is pumping.

PHEMCast have put together a great podcast which can guide you through the procedure and get you started.

#FOAMed of the Week: Sydney HEMS Podcasts for Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine

'Sydney HEMS' is the Pre-Hospital and Retrieval Team for the New South Wales Ambulance Service. Members of the team: Cliff Reid, Karel Habig and Geoff Healy have got together to produce some great introductory podcasts. Although aimed at those starting in PHEM, I found listening to three well respected experts discussing some of the basics in their speciality a really valuable experience.
