One week from today on Wednesday, August 13th at 2 PM EST I will be hosting the first EM PharmD Journal club via Google Hangout.
The current Rutgers EM Pharmacy PGY-2 residents will be presenting two articles.
Jabre P, Combes X, Lapostolle F, et al. Etomidate versus ketamine for rapid sequence intubation in acutely ill patients: a multicentre randomised controlled trial. Lancet. 2009 Jul 25;374(9686):293-300 PMID: 19573904
Cohen L et al. The Effect of Ketamine on Intracranial and Cerebral Perfusion Pressure and Health Outcomes: A Systematic Review. Ann Emerg Med. 2014 Jul 16 [Epub ahead of print]. PMID: 25064742
Please join us for a discussion surrounding the impact (or lack there of) for these articles on practice.
More details regarding the Google Hangout to follow shortly.
Hope to see you in a week!
