Papers of November 2018

Welcome back to November’s Papers Podcast. We’ve got 3 great papers for you again this month.

First up we take a look at a paper that looks to quantify the amount of experience needed to be a proficient intubator, in this case in arrest. Next we have a look at a paper which shows a significant difference in mortality in cardiac arrest dependant on the intravascular access route used. Finally we have a look a really interesting paper in the dispatch method of a HEMS service which we be of real interest to all those involved in paramedicine and prehospital critical care.

Make sure you take a look at the papers themselves and form your own opinions. We’d love to hear any thoughts and feedback you have.
