March 2016: Pulmonary Embolism

March brings a new set of interns and a new episode of AZEMCast. We welcome our new Match group as well as some new contributors to the program.

This month we discuss the pulmonary embolism in all its mysterious glory. Chris Williams and I discuss how and in whom to chase them, Brian Drummond says to send them home and Jarrod Mosier and Raj Joshi ask you to please talk to them (maybe personally) before thrombolysing. We close with an exceptional peer review by Dr. Steve Groke, class of 2014.

Happy listening,

Aaron, Jarrod and Brian

February 2016: In Service Review - HEENT

February in Tucson brings warm weather and cold sweats to all the residents prepping for the EM Inservice Exam. But never fear! AZEMCast is here to add a few more points to your score with the annual inservice exam review. Jarrod is away and Brian is filling in as we banter about all things HEENT. 


As a disclaimer, we do not know what is on your inservice exam (although took five of them during residency) and listening to this podcast as the sole method of studying is sure fire way to bomb your test. Read a book, do some practice questions but listen on your drive or ride to work. Every little bit helps!

January 2016: 2015 AHA Guidelines - Part 3

They new year brings a new episode of AZEMCast with an entirely new focus. That’s right it’s the PEDIATRIC AHA guidelines! C'mon, you knew it was coming. 


But this time it's more than Jarrod, Brian and I jabbering on and on. Instead, we talk with Dr. Marc Berg, a pediatric intensivist and one of the co-authors of the pediatric guidelines. Marc shares with us the science, history and back story behind how these new guidelines came into being.

Our Peer Review this month is by Dr. Art Sanders who provides his own insight into resuscitation research and future. 

Next month is the Resident inservice exam prep and then I promise to get back to whatever it is we used to do before the AHA guidelines.

December 2015: 2015 AHA Guidelines - Part 2

2015 has come to a close and we have saved the best for last! Part 2 of our review of the 2015 American Heart Guidelines covers post-arrest care and ACS management with a great Rosen anecdote and an AMAZING peer review by two or our alumni: Dr. Clay Josephy and Dr. Mike McLaughlin. These guys work in the settings we only have nightmares about and their review is on point!

November 2015: 2015 AHA Guidelines - Part 1

We have been blessed by a cornucopia of new American Heart Association guidelines to discuss and for that we are truly thankful. Like most Thanksgiving meals our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and we ended up with a TON of stuffing. So rather than give you that brain equivalent of the lead weight in your stomach, Jarrod, Brian and I have broken up our review of the AHA guidelines into November and December portions for your mental digestion. 

This month we feature our highlights of the new BLS and ACLS guidelines updates along with a historical perspective of resuscitation and the AHA guidelines by none other than Dr. Peter Rosen. So, loosen your belt and make room for seconds of AZEMCast!

October 2015: Compartment Syndrome, Fingertip Fractures and Difficult Consultants

October is here and that means it’s time for light sweaters in 80 degree temps and a new episode of AZEMCast. 


This month we get another visit from the world’s worst ER doc while Jarrod and I discuss cross fit and the rhabdomyolysis and compartment syndrome that goes with it. Brian Drummond wants to know why you’re giving cephalexin to that tuft’s fx and has some papers to back him up. We garner some words of wisdom from Peter Rosen on dealing with conflicts in patient care. And we cap off this month with a peer review from Class of 2014 alumnus Dr. Casey Solem.

Contact us on Twitter @arizonaemcast for comments, suggestions or the chance to be a peer reviewer!

August 2015: Low risk chest pain, syncope and Rosenisms

August in Tucson means the snow birds are just a few months away. For that we delve into the American Heart Association guidelines on low risk chest pain before they get here. Our world's worst ER doc tries to admit a syncope patient and Dr. Peter Rosen weighs in on our duty to the chest pain patient from his medical and personal point of view.

Remember to take a screenshot of the articles and supplement our wild ramblings with good literature!

July 2015 AZEMCast

Happy July AZEMCast listeners! Yes, I realize it’s probably August by the time many of you are getting this, but it’s still July here!

This month, Jarrod and I go back to basis and tackle some Neurologic emergencies. From meningitis to seizures to MRI in the ED we tackle the strange, the simple and the debatable. 
We’d like to welcome our new interns here in Tucson and our alumni and other listeners abroad. As always, we welcome your contributions!

2015 June AZEMCast

The last AZEMCast of the academic year is upon us (barely). In honor of summer and all of the motorized vehicles it represents, this month we cover Traumatic Brain Injury and several of the new directions we are headed toward managing this complex disease. We get a visit from a recent graduate to help ease (or frighten) our seniors into their new jobs. Finally, Peter Rosen tells it like it is in a frank comment about the role of consultants in the ED. Two years in the books; thanks for listening!
