Papers of September 2022


Welcome back to the podcast!

It’s brilliant to be back after our summer break and we’ve got three great papers for you.

First up we take a look at a paper looking at the association the a geriatric assessment can make on the mortality of patients aged 65 years and older, admitted with significant injuries to our UK major trauma centres.

Next up we take a look at a newly proposed method to simple chest compressions in cardiac arrest, by comparing it to chest and abdominal compression and decompressions.

Finally we take a look at the diagnosis and management of TMJ dislocations and guarantee there will be a new technique in there for all of you!

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