Those who don’t follow me on Twitter probably have calm, productive lives. Those who do wonder why I twitter at all. Because it keeps me busy and engaged, that’s why.
Here’s an edited compilation of two of the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly 2012 lectures in tweets by me from Denver. These encompass about 3.5 hours of lecture by the same two legends, Jerry Hoffman and Rick Bukata reviewing the medical literature as it applies to EM.
I used Storify to put these together (it couldn’t have been easier). I left out a lot of comments from others, not as they weren’t interesting but as I’m trying to tell the story of this lecture.
At the end there’re some pictures of the Twitterers and Bloggers who get together after ACEP. Nice how we’re birds of a feather. For a bonus, at the end are Joe Lex’s 4 Rules of Emergency Medicine, which deserves its own compilation.
ACEP 2012 Tweets by me: Hoffman & Bukata
I went to the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly held in Denver in October, 2012. I live tweeted some of the lectures I attended. Here they are.First, I’m going to combine the tweets from Hoffman and Bukata’s 2 lectures, as they’ll make more sense that way. Then pictures!

All the scans trauma wanted were gotten with a prospective form filled out by both about which scans they didn’t want. In the end the ED…
I disagree, many needs some Physical Therapy to have a more stable ankle that doesn’t recurrently sprain.
Also not a fan of these 9 page DC instructions we’re printing out.
Issue was, is it safe to do caths in places that cannot do ‘rescue CABG”? In a study of 124K pt’s in centers with and without ‘rescue CABG’ ability, answer was yes, and in places that could do CABG it was done a whole lot more than places where it wasn’t; occasional pt had to be transferred to CABG place, but not many.
