This Week (5/3)

46th edition. The EMS block has concluded. Finish your Rosh Quizzes by tomorrow in order to be counted towards the championship. We are now starting the HemeOnc block. 



SCHEDULING CHANGE –as of NOW, the matrix for PGY 1 & 3 is as follows: 6a-2p1:30p-9:30p, and 9p-6a. This is different from last week so pay attention. 

PPE Selfies – I would like to come up with some way to send thanks to my friend that allowed us to obtain all of the half respirators. Please send me a picture of you at work in your half mask with the pink cartridges. Obviously keep any patient identifying information out of the frame. I was thinking of having people hold up a piece of paper that says “Thank You” or something along those lines. I’m open to suggestions. Send these to my work phone: 540-855-4994

Substance Abuse Modules – are available on the google drive under educational content > psych. Please watch these and go over the slides if you did not make it to lecture. Leslie needs a copy of your pre-test in addition to an evaluation for EACH MODULE. Yes, each module. Old Items:Resident Respirators –if you have not had a chance, go to employee health to get a replacement p100 cartridge for our half mask respirators. These are half the size of the pink cartridges so a little lighter to wear. Go now while supplies last. 

COVID-19 – continue to check the main residency drive > COVID-19 folder. I will continue to upload all the important documents as they are sent out. 

  • Attendings – if you want access to this folder send me your personal email address and I will send you a link to view. 
  • COVID-19 Links – is a document I made to keep track of the best resources to stay up to date. It is in the drive folder.

Podcast of the Week:

EM:RAP did a breaking news podcast week that was an update to vent management in COVID.  It’s very good and worth a listen. This was done by Haney Mallemat, MD who is an attending at Cooper Health so I am a little biased.
