Papers of July 2021

Another month and 3 more papers!

First up we have a look at a paper that has grabbed a lot of recent headlines in the form of TTM2. So we now seem to have the answer to whether comatose patients following out of hospital cardiac arrest benefit from therapeutic hypothermia over maintenance of normothermia.

Next up we take a look at a paper which adds some real value to our assessments of maxillofacial injuries and can help inform our assessment of the likelihood of fracture and need for imaging.

Lastly we take a look at the whether iv vs io access in cardiac arrest might make a difference to outcomes when it comes to the use of adrenaline.

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


Now that you have listened to the podcast, start the quiz to add it to your CPD Diary
