Dr. Laureen Hill is the Chair of Anesthesiology at Emory university.

In the second discussion with her we focus on:

1. Surpa-glottic airways

2. Role of paralytics beyond sedation

3. Video assisted larygoscopy

4. Aspiration pneumonia as a complication of intubating without a paralytic

This discussion was really good, easy to follow, with great points.

Doc Powell is an SF Group Surgeon and Army Intensivist (intensive care specialist). he discusses the basic science and practical aspects of what shock is "beyond hypoerfusion of tissues".  The science of shock is complex and multifactorial. Doc Powell explains the concepts of tissue damage and the systemic inflammatory response. For those of you who want to understand what shock really is, this is an excellent discussion.

Stay tuned for news of the PJNY /103rd jump mission near the Azores for 2 burn patients last week.  A night jump, lots of sophisticated medicine and complex exfil.

The most frequent book I recommend is the TALENT CODE by Daniel Coyle. He studied how world class performers come to be and discussed the neuroscience behind it. This book was recommended to me by a former BUDS Commander and is part of the foundation of how I perform operational medical training. I encourage anyone who trains operators below them or in schoolhouses to listen to this and read the book.
