Grand Rounds: December 3, 2015

In the penultimate Grand Rounds of 2015, we hear from our very own Dr. Caroline Brandon and Dr. Stuart Swadron.

The first lecture is from Dr. Brandon who gives an excellent and engaging PGY3 talk on accidental hypothermia, a topic that is apt for this time of year. Remember to be gentle and treat by warming!

Dr. Swadron shares his expertise with epistaxis and includes a video of a real case of a posterior bleed, an uncommon yet serious condition. He breaks down his stepwise approach to epistaxis:

0. Primary Survey
1. Pinch the nose
2. Clean out the boogers
3. Analgesia/sedation
4. Find the bleeding site
5. Anterior packing
6. Posterior packing
7. Where are your friends?

That’s all for this week. See you next Thursday!
