Papers of May ’17

This month we’ve got a good variety of topics.

We look at an recent systematic review and meta analysis on the prognostic value of echo in life support, an update from Blyth’s paper in 2012. We review a paper looking at testing gin patients presenting to the emergency department in SVT. Finally we cover a paper looking at different methods employed when running an Emergency Department.

As always make sure you go and have a read of the papers yourselves and come up with your own conclusions, we’d love to hear your feedback.
