Howdy…..Mike here. I am a Emergency Medicine Attending for the US Army, prior to which I was Chief Resident at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. I received my osteopathic medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. Subscribe, get the information and learn something new or be reminded of something old. Everyone is welcome.
Hey everyone! I’m Trent, and I’m an Emergency Medicine staff doc for the US Air Force. I also was a Chief Resident at Brooke Army Medical Center, and I went to med school at Indiana University. Every so often I’m going to be adding a brief summary of medications that pertain to the same general subject being covered that week. The point of these summaries is to learn more about the medications we use on a day to day basis in order to feel more comfortable using them. Sometimes I will cover indications/dosing, and other times I will look more at the toxicity associated with a certain medication. If you ever have any suggestions of how to improve this section, please leave a reply on the blog. We want to make this an efficient way to learn and pick up essential information.
Hey, I’m Andy. I’m an Emergency Medicine resident at San Antonio Military Medical Center. I’m a graduate of SUNY Upstate Medical University, did an internship in Internal Medicine and spent two years as a Flight Surgeon/GMO before starting EM. I enjoy most facets of Emergency Medicine, but am most interested in en-route and prehospital care. I find that my patients teach me something new almost every shift, and I owe it to them to share their lessons. I learn best by case-based presentations, so the majority of my posts will be similarly formatted.
Hopefully, you follow-up the posts and read a little more and get a little stronger. Our patients deserve the best from us.
