    I’m a medical student from Australia and I listen to your talks most nights before I sleep. They’re so helpful! I especially like it how you summarise at the end of every section. Keep it up Dr Steve!

    Dear Steve,

    I am a junior doctor and your talks are really helpful. Thanks a lot. Shall I suggest/ request any topics?

      • Frenauld says:


        Thank you very much for your reply. I would like to suggest these topics:

        1. Hematuria
        2. Tremor
        3. Red eye
        4. Tiredness
        5. Rash



      • EM Basic says:


        Thanks for the suggestions. Look for an episode on the red eye real soon. As far as the others- I will definitely do a podcast on rashes in the future but don’t get your hopes too high for that one. I freely admit that derm is not one of my strong suits and that is true for most EM people. I will, however, plan on doing a podcast on how to catch the truly emergent derm problems out there but honestly- most derm is not an EM issue and can follow-up with your primary care doctor so that’s not really my focus with the podcast.

        Hematuria, tremor, and tiredness fall somewhat into that same category of not being ED problems and more primary care issues. That being said, I’ve seen a few MIs come in as “fatigue” or patients with a sodium of 110 who only felt “a little tired” so that may be a topic in the future.

        Thanks again for listening and thanks for the suggestions

  6. […] EMBasic has to be another one you should listen too. This is by Steve Carroll  a  graduate from the Emergency MedicineResidency at San Antonio Military Medical Center (formerly Brooke Army Medical Center) in San Antonio, Texas. Each podcast focuses on a particular condition, breaking it down into signs and symptoms and then current treatment. Examples include hypertension, COPD and fitting. Steve has a monotonous style but don’t let that fool you. These are gold nuggets in the critical care/emergency medicine podcasting world, highly recommended with great show notes as well. […]
