Great site for emergency medicine and critical care professionals

What they say:

We are Australasian critical care physicians and nurses exploring the changing world of eLearning, emergency medicine, critical care and toxicology through clinical cases, fictionalized anecdotes and medical satire.

Our team was born out of passionate (and usually unresolved) debate pertaining to the elements of eLearning; medical education; medical history; political ambiguity; information sharing, sacred secret truthfulness and the open source era and the ethos of web 2.0. We write simply to facilitate the learning process by providing diverse and hopefully entertaining reading material. Naturally we cite and give due reverence to the great hero of modern clinical medicine, Sir William Osler

Life in the Fast Lane – Learn by reading, seeing, hearing and sharing…THEN by doing

We say:

Great site. Plenty of humour interspersed with very effective learning tools. Case reviews are presented in quiz format so you get to test your knowledge and then click on the answers.

Recent Clinical Cases covered for example:

  • No Radial Pulse, Raynauds phenomenon
