Tips & Tricks

If you want in-depth education on managing hypotensive patients, just ‘head down’ to the Resuscitology course in Noosa or Manly 😀

Just a reminder to all nurses and doctors everywhere that placing a hypotensive patient in a head down position isn’t good for their airway, their breathing, their intracranial pressure (and hence their cerebral perfusion) and doesn’t usually help their blood pressure

Feedback like this email we received today keeps us going.
Next Resuscitology courses are Noosa in October and Manly in November. Details at

Spring Seminar on Emergency Medicine is also in Noosa - immediately after Resuscitology. So you can make a week of it! and

Some courses are just ‘tick box’

Some change the way you think for ever.

Of those that I know, @resuscitology and @ATACCFaculty are probably the two that I’d recommend above all others.

What are yours?

I am grateful for the Pause our ICU nurse in charge conducted today after the death of a patient.

Apparently the first one done on this Unit.

Meaningful for all staff present.

Interested to hear who else is doing this in their EDs & ICUs

Sometimes when I’m crushed between long hours and inadequate resources and the exhaustion of moral injury I forget to stop, take a breath, and appreciate how fucking awesome my job is and what a privilege it is to do it.

Discussed dynamic hyperinflation in asthma with the ED registrar & mechanisms by which NIV might be beneficial

When resus nurses became free I was about to take them through it when the reg said: "Do you mind if I teach them, so you can check my understanding?"

She nailed it.

There’s lots of reasons I hope we get to run another U.K. @resuscitology course but I’d be lying if I said having Segs as faculty again wasn’t very near the top of the list.

@Pipes_n_pumps @CCWearmouth @resuscitology There has been 1 UK @resuscitology course. I was incredibly fortunate to be on it a few years ago. Hope it returns some day!

Feedback like this email from one of this week’s course participants is heartwarming for our faculty who love to see a Resuscitologist back on track

Join us in Noosa for our next course in October, or Manly in November

Resetting from the first case discussion of day 2 at #Resuscitology11 with some frisbees, a football, and @cliffreid’s favourite resuscitation story in the mountain air #friluftsliv #wellness #itsquitefresh


Our deep case discussions evoke powerful emotions. ⁦⁦@_NMay⁩ reminds us of the importance of emotional self-validation #Resuscitology11

“When clinicians have conflict, the patient loses.” - @cliffreid takes us through some core human factors skills and techniques to help us navigate the hard stuff in critical care #Resuscitology11 #HumanFactors

Talk-and-die patients are a huge challenge, clinically and emotionally, both at the time and afterwards. As we dig deep into this case at #Resuscitology11, you might want to review our #ImpendingDoom podcast: (h/t @umanamd for the slide) #FOAMed

Really useful +Insightful paper from Team 6 @SECAmb_CCP.
