Here are some high yield colorectal points for the ABSITE
I apologize for the poor audio quality we were without our standard equipment for the recording of this episode, but the content is still very high yield.
In this episode we are reviewing the “Stomach”. Joined by another guest and fellow resident Rowan Sheldon, Jason and John take on a topic that’s not only highly tested, but also very relevant to every day practice.
Enjoy! We are going to knock out a few more out in the near future as the ABSITE is closing in!
Dr. Martin joins us once again (we think he just enjoys pimping us) to go over three important topics. Bariatrics is becoming more common on the ABSITE every year and as always spleen and pancreas are also very common!
We will be publishing a few more in the next weeks to come to really cram it in before the ABSITE!
Once again, thanks again to Dr. Martin to taking time out of his busy schedule to join us for review. Please take time to check out the EAST TRAUMACAST available on iTunes to really drive these trauma points home.
