Happy New Year everyone! 
We've got a great new year in store for the EM Cast listeners....starting with the topics for this month: 

1. Don't order that lab test!!! You're gonna get sued! Well, maybe and maybe not. Dr. Michael Bond will discuss liability issues pertaining to certain lab testing. 
2. Got ultrasound? If not, it's time to get serious about getting it and learning how to use it. Dr. Brian Euerle will tell you where we are currently in terms of using ultrasound well as the new ways of using it for 2010. It's a new decade...better keep up! 
3. Chest pain + new left bundle branch block = lytics or emergent cath...right?? Well....maybe not......it might be more appropriate to talk to your cardiologists about their preference with these patients first. 
4. Your cutting-edge medical knowledge will protect the patient. But how do you protect yourself? Dr. Bond returns to provide some risk management tips regarding your documentation. 

EM Cast...if you're not getting it, you just don't get it! 

Best wishes in 2010, everyone!
