My Clinical Uses of Albumin – blending Habit, Physiology and some Woodcock! #FOAMed, #FOAMcc, #FOAMim.

So in the last few weeks I seem to keep having similar discussions with colleagues, residents and nurses around the use of albumin. I figured might as well put it down in a 10 minutes of CC.

I would definitely recommend reading from, Thomas Woodcock’s blog, filled with fluid goodness. If you’re not up to speed on the glycocalyx, it’s the best place to start.

I am referring here to 25% albumin – the only one we have in our shop.

Love to hear some thoughts, practices, etc.






Oh yes, of course, H&R2020 is around the corner. Should have CME news soon. Can’t announce it yet, legally, but I can say we’ve never organized an event that didn’t have CME!

Fluid Philosophy & Physiology. #STOWEEM20 Lecture! #foamed #foamcc


So I love the UVM EM Update at Stowe. It’s a great little conference, run by my good friend and all around awesome guy Peter Weimersheimer (VTEMsono) ED Pocusologist, and his super team including Kyle DeWitt (@emergpharm), Meghan Groth (ENpharmgirl) and Mark Bisanzo (@mbisanzo). It’s a smooth running show with some really amazing speakers where I always learn a bunch. Had the chance to finally meet Sergey Motov (@painfreeED) and learn from an awesome opioid lecture. And it’s always great to hang with Josh (@PulmCrit) and listen to the pearls!

So here is my fluid talk. The Keynote pdf is just below. Hope there’s a useful tidbit or two in there!

So thanks again to Peter and his crew! And the Stowe attendees, as we had mentioned, get to attend H&R2020 at the in-house rate! (Please choose the Special Members rate)
