Papers of January 2024

Happy New Year!

We’ve got some great topic and in person events lined up for 2024 which we’ll be able to share some more details about with you soon.

This month we look at an RCT of conservative airway management in patients with a low GCS following presentation with acute poisoning.

Next up we take a look at paper reviewing our diagnostic ability with dissociative seizures; this gives us some really valuable signs and symptoms to looks for and outlines how we can improve with these presentations.

Lastly we look at prognostic scores following out of hospital cardiac arrests with a study that compares four different scores. If reliable they have significant scope to help us to both prognosticate and give valuable information to family and loved ones on their presentation to ED.

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