ICubed March 2017 Episode

It’s out, folks. March 2017 Episode is a goody! I talk to Dr. Beeston, a graduate of my beloved EM residency at Maricopa Medical Center.  We chat about a nursing home patient who had a ground level fall and we share a couple of important lessons 🙂

My Promo on Emergency Medicine News


Yup, I’m official now. It is kind of weird to see myself on a major EM website. Cool, though.



My colleague texted me a picture of his paper copy of EMN. I don’t even get that in the mail anymore, haha. 



My first episode came out about 2 weeks ago and I have been getting good feedback. It featured my colleague Dr. Marc Zosky, new grad from New Orleans and a great addition to our group. He’s a natural at this educational podcasting.  The next episode will feature another of our newbies, a sophomore to our group, Dr. Paul Beeston who hails from my own residency, Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix. He is fantastic, smart and hardworking. He is also very POCUS-savvy which I love.

Announcement: My Screencast Blog

I am so excited to announce that I will have a screencast blog featured on Emergency Medicine News to start in March 2017. It’s called iCubed: Impart, Instruct, Inspire. It’s an opportunity that came to me somewhat unexpectedly last year. I had sent EMN a few educational items related to EM and the editor posted them. As we communicated through the year, the editor offered me my own blog on their website. She loved my excitement about the amazing cases I’ve had through the years, and my enthusiasm about sharing them.

So, folks, it’s going to happen! I’m stoked!


My First Published Case Report Is A Doozy


Another step toward educating my fellow ER docs and future physicians. Yay for me! I’ve been published again in Emergency Medicine News. The thing is, where I work, the kind of patients and acuity we see, there is such an untapped treasure trove of incredible “real” Emergency Medicine. I have so many, many cases in my personal files which I’ve collected over the past 24 years, it could take months to prepare them for publication. But, there is such juicy medicine, amazing authenticity and rich lessons in them. It’s only the beginning, my friends. Only the beginning.
