A trauma patient rolls into the bay.  CPR started 10 minutes ago.  They are pulseless, the entire trauma team is looking to you for leadership, and the thoracotomy tray is prepped and ready.  Do you pick up the knife and cut?

Patrick Georgoff, Teddy Puzio, and Jason Brill for a high-level discussion on the one surgical procedure that trumps them all – the ED thoracotomy.  This is episode 2 of 2.  In episode 1 we discussed who should get an ED thoracotomy.  Today, we cover how to do it.

Incredible, entertaining and empowering!
This is a must listen to show if you’re thinking about becoming a surgeon, going into medicine in some capacity or just want to learn more about what the world of surgery looks like – from actual surgeons! All of the hosts do an incredible job bringing on guests in the field who cover a wide variety of topics that apply across the entire medical landscape – all while keeping the focus of sugery as the backdrop. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Amazing surgical resource
Annual ABSITE review is incredibly helpful, and such a nice break from staring at a computer screen! I listen on my way to/from work every day, making my commute a more efficient use of time. The topics outside of ABITE are also great tools for learning more about current issues in surgery as well as a career development and hot topics at annual meetings. This is an invaluable resource – I would highly recomment to every surgical resident, fellow, and faculty invested in surgical education!
