Episode 8: Critical Care with Weingart and Mallemat

I somehow tricked Scott Weingart and Haney Mallemat into sitting down and talking EM-Critical Care with me.  We go over Critical Care fellowships and answer your questions about EM/CC.  Should all residencies be four years?  Where do the experts see our specialty in 10 years?  Should we abandon the landmark technique for central line placement?  What about video versus direct laryngoscopy?  A ton of great stuff in just an hour of your time.

It's no mystery, this patient has a PE.  But the real question is, how do you treat it?  Anticoagulation alone?  Do you give lytics?  We go through the evidence and discuss why you should be strongly considering lytics in your patients with submassive PE.
