All health care professionals are welcome and encouraged to attend
Abstract: Grand rounds are now broadcast live. You can now watch grand rounds without pants and not fear judgement or arrest. Also, if you're in the room, don't be silly. Oh, and patient confidentiality.
Yesterday marked the first time that we (or anybody in the world for that matter) broadcasted Emergency Medicine rounds live to the world. It went well with only a few hitches, and will continue indefinitely.
The Division of Emergency Medicine is pleased to welcome guest speaker Dr. Greg Henry to grand rounds this week. He will be presenting "Ten Habits of a Highly Effective Emergency Physician" at 9 AM followed by the topics "Acute Neurological Emergencies: An Overall Approach Anatomy and Physiology" and "Case Studies - Subtle Presentations of Severe Neurologic Disease" at core teaching. All faculty are welcome to attend both events.
Grand Rounds: September 11th, UH Auditorium A - 9 AM
Core Teaching: September 11th, UH Auditorium D - 10 AM
Please be sure to fill out your evalution online after the event!
See you there.Read More
The academic year is off to another successful start! This year was kicked off by the annual Division of Emergency Medicine POCUS Introductory Course on July 10th, held at CSTAR. Featuring Faculty and Resident instructors, this year's flipped-classroom style was attended by multidiciplinary trainees in Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Family Medicine.
Huge thanks to our Course Directors (Dr. Mirza Baig and Dr. Behzad Hassani), our planning committee and our dedicated Faculty, without whom this course would not be possible.
Stay tuned for updates about upcoming courses.

Emergency Medicine in London is undergoing a radical and fundamental change! Recently, we celebrated the exciting initiatives based on the Toyota Production Systems philosophy.

In what I believe is a world first in Emergency Medicine, the Emergency Department in London, Ontario has deployed the first of two 3D printers at the Victoria campus. Once the kinks are worked out, the next printer will be deployed at the University campus.
For some geek talk, we have installed a Reprap Prusa i3 with RAMPS 1.4 electronics, and a single Greg's Wade extruder with a J-head MK V-B 0.4mm nozzle. We will be using Blender and FreeCAD to design, Slic3r to slice and Printrun to print. We will only use PLA plastic, a corn-based biodegradable material.
In this PEP round, Dr. Karl Theakston reviews a recent NEJM article entitled "Mechanisms of acute coronary syndromes and their implications for therapy". Dr. Theakson does an excellent job of summarizing and simplifying the complex explanations for how acute coronary syndromes develop and present.
