Medics, Where’s the Data? Improve Your Knowledge with Journals, Articles and Studies

      Protocols and algorithms likely drive the majority of decisions a medic will ever make.  Past that you may have unit or service SOPs.  If you find yourself in a situation, such as a prolonged field care situation, that outlasts all of those you should know

some of the current best practices and data to back up your decisions you may be forced to make.  Dogma is believing something to be true without knowing if it actually is, or why.  Don’t rely on dogma, question things and have your own opinions.  Know why you believe what you believe.  When you make a telemedicine consult call you should have a fairly good idea of the decision you are leaning toward and why.  You will sound much more like the medical professional you claim to be and less like the knuckle dragger they may be expecting.  Medicine is a  separate language and you are expected to be somewhat fluent.  Data and research are intellectual and professional currency and which can add to your credibility.  Read an article, understand who the authors are, their specialty, where they work and who funded or sponsored it as well as the references at the end.  You will run across words you aren’t familiar with. Put them in the Google machine and expand your medical vocabulary.  You may even want to read those references and the references to those in order to really dig deeper.  (Three deep, right Scott?)  Podcasts are a great way to hear opinions on some of these studies and how others have incorporated them into their practice.  Podcasts and blogs (even this one) are not journal articles and studies. They are meant to raise discussions and spark debate and make you aware of new techniques or practicees.  If a study is mentioned find the article and read it yourself.  Don’t be the guy quoting a podcast or Facebook post in a scholarly discussion, at that point it will just be entertainment, for the other guy.  Know where it originated.

      Our working group has published 7 official position papers and numerous other recommendations you can read by clicking the links to the right.  These are usually written by subject matter experts and edited by the working group at large and they often have references listed at the end.  I encourage you to dig deeper and read what we are reading and using to make recommendations.  If your in the US Military, you have access to the vast majority of publications and databases.  Go find your post librarian, they are usually happy to help.  If you are not, you may want to talk to your medical director and see what is available or even start investing in your own medical education by subscribing to some of the relevant journals.  In order to get started I posted the entire journal watch list as well as the TCCC abstract list from the CoTCCC below to read here or download.  I don’t hesitate to include the TCCC material because everything we adopt from TCCC will affect how you approach prolonged field care to some degree.  I will be keeping a separate page of these scholarly references so please comment below and share what you are reading so we can quickly build up a reading list.

      I challenge you to copy and paste a couple of the articles below into your search engine and see how easy it can be to get this information and improve yourself and your understanding of your craft.

Get yourself added to the TCCC email list by sending a request to danielle.m.davis.civ@mail.mil.  These lists are put out by the president of the CoTCCC, Frank Butler, as a service to medics and providers to increase their knowledge and awareness of current research.

  1. At my shop, one of our attendings “encourages” the residents and PAs to ask “why”. It helps one to understand what they really don’t know if they cannot answer the question. Also he would allow the trauma team to do just about anything within reason if we had a paper to back up our actions.

  2. Savvy analysis ! I loved the specifics , Does anyone know where I could locate a blank a form document to type on ?
