I recently realized that I don’t really have that much soft tissue content on the website or podcast and decided I needed to do something about that. The basic differentiation between cellulitis and abscess is unlikely to save a life as speedily as identifying cardiac tamponade will, but it is still vitally important. Skin infections are very common, and choosing the appropriate treatment strategy for them is of utmost importance. What WILL save a life is differentiating between a necrotizing soft tissue infection and cellulitis, which I also delve into in this talk. This vodcast was recording during our residency didactics. Check it out below!

Patients with acute pain can be challenging to manage in the ED. This week, I speak with two pain control experts: Dr. Alexis LaPietra and Dr. Katherine Vlasica. They both completed a pain management fellowship at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in New Jersey. Dr. LaPietra is the founder and creator of the Alternatives to Opiates (ALTO) program and the newly formed Pain Management Section of ACEP. Both are actively involved in a multi-modal approach to pain control in the ED, often including ultrasound-guided nerve blocks. This podcast is the audio version of the interview.
