Dr. Dave Hao has been chosen by our faculty and residents as our January, 2015 Resident of the Month. Dr. Hao is the first intern to receive this honor! Here are a few submitted comments about Dave:

“He was extremely helpful in both patient care & teaching … He took a leadership role… teaching & supervising suturing & wound care… He made a few busy nights much more tolerable by his positive demeanor & good attitude.”

“Dave is motivated, has a great attitude, solid clinical judgement, overall makes a stellar resident.”

“I’ve been impressed by Dave. He has a great attitude. He’s a real team player.”

Congratulations Dave! Thank you very much for all your hard work.

While the In-Service Exam isn’t until February 25, we thought we would start to put together some in-house resources to help folks get ready. Keep checking yaleem.org for updates and check-out the In-Service Review Resources tab under Residents for a complete list as well.

ARDSNet was a practice-changing publication that has since been extended to ventilator management of patient who do not have ALI or ARDS, so use 6-8 mL/kg of predicted body weight when using volume AC.

 

There may be a link between depth of sedation in the first 48 hours after intubation and time to extubation and mortality, but if you cannot determine how depth of sedation is defined, nor what link there might be between RASS score and medications given, you cannot act upon the findings in the publication.

 

Go to the Yale Box for a full summary of last week’s journal club, and articles, on the management of ventilated, critically ill patients.

Emergency Medicine Lectures at Yale will be in Harkness Auditorium on Wednesday, December 17th beginning @ 9:00am.

 

Breakfast will be served.
