What type of doctor do blog readers want?

I’ve recently changed the look of my website, which was basically the same since 2008. When I started it 7 years ago I made this custom pool on the homepage asking visitors to choose the doctor they wanted.

What type of doctor do you want?

It was more of a fun experiment than anything else. But nevertheless I have 7 years worth of votes. So here is how my readers ranked the offered doctors.

Hello World, again!

I started my own personal website and blog in 2008. It seams like ancient history now, and in Internet time it definitely is. I haven’t made any significant changes to it since then, but have decided to finally do them now.

Not much has changed with my new design. It is still very simple, both in terms of design and structure. However the subtle changes will make for a nicer reading experience on desktop and mobile allowing more readers to discover and share my posts.

I hope you will enjoy it.

Make sure you subscribe to my posts and contact me with your comments and suggestions.

RCEM15 conference

I just came back from The Royal College of Emergency Medicine Annual Scientific Conference held in Manchester, UK from 28 to 30 September. It was an excellent conference, with great organisation and fantastic speakers including international lecturers like the larger than life Scott Weingart and amazing Cliff Reid, not to mention a range of UK based professors and consultants.

For a brilliant summary of the most exciting lectures, I recommend you visit the RCEM FOAMed Network.

I have participated with two abstracts based on the research I have conducted during the last 6 months. Both were presented as posters, and you can view them below.

Intraosseous access video lecture

Intraosseous access is now a common procedure in emergency departments. Everyone seams to be familiar with how to use some of the popular assisted devices. It is very easy to learn how to use them during a quick workshop. However, I have noticed that many do not know all the theory around it. They are good at the sexy bit of introducing the needle, but do not really understand indications, contraindications and all the other parts, like anaesthesia, to make the most of it.
Enjoy.
