FOAMREVIEW-01.jpg

Welcome to the first edition of the #FOAM Review. The idea of the FOAM review is to give you a digestible selection of reliable content from the online EM/CC world that you can fit into your busy weekly schedule. Each review will include highlights from the highest yield blog, podcast, video and web sources around. Over a year's span we will be sure to include topics from all core EM content areas...even the ones that may not be the coolest. 

VIDEO BLOG: If you need to improve your airway skills or are completely new to EM, the Essential Emergency Airway Care Course is as good as it gets. From planning your airway to the surgical airway, it's all covered with high yield video and flow charts at The Sharp End.
