Papers of April 2022

Welcome back to April ‘22 papers of the month podcast!

We start off this month with a paper looking at the effect of a structured airway course on first pass success in novice and HEMS clinicians.

Next up we take a look at the much discussed RePHILL trial; do packed red blood cells and lyoplas lead to better outcomes in patients with traumatic hypovolaemic shock?

Lastly we take a look at the topic of over-diagnosis and a paper that has made us think and reflect really hard on our practice of Emergency Medicine!

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
