Papers of June 2022

Welcome back to June ’22 papers podcast!

This month we start off with a look at rocuronium dosing in RSI; could a simple change of dosage lead to an increased first pass success for our intubations?

Next up we take a look at the use of TXA in trauma, with specific focus on gender based inequality in its use and a trial with shocking results.

Finally we take a look at a paper focussing on outcomes of cardiac arrest and cut-off points with regards to duration of resuscitation; could this help answer that ever-difficult question of when to stop?

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