49. Penetrating Neck Trauma: Death by Elder Wand!

On this episode, we will explore the neck and why the Elder Wand should not be used by nerdy & clumsy friends in enclosed spaces. We talk why zoning is super lame and not on boards anymore (so don’t learn it), a cool mnemonic to remember neck injuries in the ED, and who needs CTA vs OR. As a bonus, we talk pitfalls of intubating these patients! Wow that’s quite a menu- all free and available to you 24/7.
