Tell us about arrhythmias, again…..

October 19, 2009

I know it’s silly, but it’s a nice wee video, and actually portrays quite nicely how AV blocks work.  The left and right bundle branch blocks look wrong at first, but actually, they’re right!

Lung Cancer ‘ITA’

October 1, 2009

The lung cancer ‘ITA’ is a bit different, but I think it allows us to broach the topics of managing the patient with (lung) cancer, breaking bad news, and the impact we have on people’s lives, at such a pivotal moment.

I have now burnt a number of copies of the DVD, and they’re sat on my desk.  The University will stump for a blank DVD, I’m sure, so if you want a copy of the DVD to look at in your own time, come and find me, and I’ll get you one.

Remember to look at the previous entries to see the lung cancer websites, and, importantly, download the document on Giving Information to Patients with lung cancer.

The first 2 days of the respiratory block has lectures on signs and symptoms of respiratory disease.  To get a head start on things, visit this resource that has basic check lists for the different system examinations.

St George’s Hospital Medical School have a series of videos of examinations on their YouTube channel.  Here’s the respiratory one.

Rest assured that DundeeChest is beavering away making a comprehensive respiratory examination video, and it’ll be posted soon.  Ish.

New Thoracic Drainage Site

August 14, 2009

The blog now has a Thoracic Drainage page – this page will collate any information on the site regarding pleural aspiration and drainage.  So far there are a couple of videos from the New England Journal of Medicine showing correct techniques for insertion of chest drains and thoracocentesis.  More to follow as I have them.
