Tasty Morsels of EM 004

8 Jun

I keep a little, ever-expanding note on my phone where I jot down little morsels of goodness that I pick up while listening to or reading one of the many excellent sites/podcasts in the useful resource section.

I’ll try and transfer them here for your enlightenment.

I picked this up from this Joe Lex talk.

  • perfs need cleaned and left alone
  • traumatic perfs need ENT referral
  • in epistaxis control the bleeding then cauterise that means epi and lidocaine in nose and wait for 5 mins
  • if packing remember to give antibiotics for toxic shock
