Hi Sir,

I am a general practioner working in an ER and I just did a thoracotomy and pericardiotomy after a traumatic stab wound that created a cardiac tamponade and the patient survived!!! My hospital didn’t have an available trauma surgeon, those are only found in XXXXXXX hospital, so I rode with him there.  He arrived with normal vital signs. I had released the tamponade!

I couldn’t have done it without your video on traumatic arrest!. I hope to do my emergency residency next year!  I love EMCrit !. viva el FOAM!!!!!

Holy crap, a national health system actually gets it; just as the US is now trying to push the ED as a primary care destination
