Improving Far Forward Medicine



One of our initial ideas when trying to get information out to medics was to create a podcast series that medics can download to smartphones or mp3 players and listen to during their drive to work, while traveling or even while deployed.  The more options we give medics to get their hands on this information, the more likely they will be to download and listen, watch or read it. Our podcasts are hosted by libsyn and the SOMA website with a link and blurb or abstract posted on this site for ease of notification and a home to host discussion and questions.   You can subscribe through iTunes or your favorite app and have each new episode downloaded wirelessly and automatically as we publish them.  Many thanks go out to Justin and Doc Keenan who helped us get this going as well as Scott Weingart of EMCrit and Bob Mabry and the SOMA Board Members and many others who have contributed.

  1. Tube thoracostomy management
    Critical care nutrition (NG tube bolus feeds, etc.)
    ? Ultrasound techniques ( other than FAST)- i.e. ICP approximation, fracture identification, RUSH exam…

  2. Just listened to the podcast that Justin and Dr. Burns put out. Great stuff. We do the same thing in my shop on the trauma service. I would also like to add that the 125cc/hr rate comes from the protein sparing effect of D5 IVF has on the body whereby providing 3 liters of D5 you have supplemented 150 grams of dextrose to supply the body with substrate over 24 hours. In regards to the NG tube feeds, I like to think about the body’s physiology from the “caveman” point of view. If he were to be attacked by the saber tooth and survive the insult, he will hunker down in his cave and let his body do the rest. His body will utilize its own stores for a period of time due to evolutionary adaptations. Additionally, return of gut function in terms of days is usually- Small bowel 0-1 day, Stomach 1-2 days, Large intestines 2-3 or more days. Some have suggested 0,3-5,5-7 days as the numbers if they have had surgery on the bowel…Just some thoughts. Keep up the great work.
