In 2019, EM Resident magazine won national honors, welcomed more new authors than in any previous year, and raised the bar for content. Let's review the most-read material of the year.
Readers, you like a challenge - specifically, the ECG Challenge. This remains our most sought-out section, helping illuminate the fine points of EKG interpretation.
This year the Critical Care Alerts, courtesy of EMRA's Critical Care Committee, gained popularity, helping put research into context for your practice.
Free board review questions, compliments of PEER, rounded out our most-read regular sections.
