Papers of January 2023


Welcome to 2023 and a very happy New Year!

We hope you managed to get some time with your loved ones over the festive period and we’re back with the podcast again to kick off the new year.

First up, we take a look at a paper assessing whether there is benefit to treatment with thrombolytics or anticoagulants for patients in cardiac arrest due to a presumed MI.

Next up we look at the potential harm in administering steroids to patients with COVID-19 nor requiring supplemental oxygen.

Finally, we take a look at a paper assessing the potential use of point of care lactate in predicting the need for in-hospital blood product resuscitation.

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