EMRA*Cast Host: Dr. Shreyans Sanghvi takes a deep dive on medical education in the 21st century with founders of ECG Stampede - Drs. Catie Reynolds, Benjamin Cooper, Tom Fadial, and Jonathan Giordano.

Overview
Every year thousands of clinical pearls are published in the emergency medicine FOAMed space. From podcasts, blog posts, to journal feeds - the novice EM resident is often overwhelmed by the vast amount of nuanced information these valuable resources provide. But how do you make sure you get the right content in front of your residents?

On this episode of EMRA*Cast, Drs. Benjamin Cooper, Jonathan Giordano, Catie Reynolds, and Tom Fadial discuss their journey developing "ECG Stampede," a gamified medical education platform, aimed at helping residents master the foundations of electrocardiography triage and interpretation.

Key Points

  1. ECG interpretation offers a window into the pathology and physiology underlying the undifferentiated patient.
     
  2. ECG triage is an important skill set for trainees to master during residency, whereby fast-paced clinical decisions can greatly impact the quality of care patients receive.

  3. ECG triage is subtly, but invariably different than ECG interpretation, often requiring not only consideration of a patient's acuity, but also the resource-limited nature that an emergency department functions under.
