The July 2012 EMCast is now posted online for subscribers at http://www.emedhome.com/cme_emcast_list.cfm 

Topics this month include: 
1. Rising critical care star Dr. John Greenwood teams up with rising emergency cardiology star Dr. Semhar Tewelde to discuss a recent article in the crit care literature focused on evaluation and management of hypertensive emergencies. Definitely some surprises and tar pits in this discussion. 

2. NY/NJ wiseguys Drs. Haney Mallemat and Ken Butler bring their act back to EMCast to talk about the recent NEJM review on drowning. 

3. We finish the podcast with a review of a handful of soon-to-be classic articles that discuss the value of various symptoms and signs for predicting ACS. It turns out there are probably only 4 chest pain descriptors that predict ACS....and "chest pressure" is NOT one of them. 

Don't walk.... run to your nearest computer and check it out! You just might save a life (and lawsuit).
