Welcome to a new social media feature for RVRS, #FOAMedFriday! The uninitiated among you is probably asking “what the heck is FOAMed?”
FOAM stands for Free Open Access Meducation; it’s a movement among medical educators that recognizes the fact that the practice of medicine is something that evolves quickly, far more so than textbooks are updated. Practitioners and educators crowd-source the latest information, and disseminate it over the internet, making it more accessible to more providers.
In our very first #FOAMedFriday post, Dr. Josh Farkas over at EMCrit talks about Epinephrine vs. Atropine for crashing bradycardic patients, and why the ACLS algorithm might be getting it wrong. Check out the article here: https://goo.gl/H75q2L
