Papers of April 2023


Welcome back to the podcast!

This month we start off thinking about sepsis, specifically fluid management and whether a restrictive approach to fluid resuscitation in combination with earlier vasopressors is advantageous over a liberal approach.

Next we have a look at a study evaluating the diagnostic benefit of ultrasound in the prehospital setting.

Finally we have a think about the benefit that traumatic brain injury patients may benefit from with regards to beta blocker therapy.

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