What would Rich Cantor do? In the emergency department, during our quiet moments, we ask ourselves that question frequently. Finally, we decided to get the answers. We invited Rich to Essentials of EM 2013 and demanded answers to our most pressing questions. Alright, maybe not demanded, but we made it clear that he could not leave until our minds were jam packed with pearls. His reward is a place in the EEM 2013 Educational Top 5 countdown and a place in our hearts. Make sure to not miss out on the rest of the countdown by clicking follow at the Hippo EM blog and following us on twitter @HippoEM. We have exciting stuff planned for the coming months and you will not want to miss any of it.
