The EM Logic Podcast was born of 20 years of observation that errors in medicine often occur not because of limited knowledge or being unaware of the latest literature but because the provider was on autopilot or failed to use basic logic in decision-making.
EM Logic is meant to complement but never replace what health care providers learn in medical school, residency, and the evidence-based literature. It is meant to get you thinking rather than just following management algorithms you have learned during your career.
Dr. Pregerson will focus on the pitfalls of confusing cause with coincidence, being falsely reassured by normal tests, and getting burned by illogical assumptions. He hopes it will improve the care you provide and your patients’ outcomes, and keep you from being an honored guest at your department’s next peer review meeting.
Dr. Pregerson has been practicing emergency medicine since 2000, lecturing and writing about medical topics since 2004, and has reviewed more than 180 malpractice cases since 2008. He is the author of three EM pocket references, the creator of EMresource.org and EM1minuteconsult.com, and the author of the EMN column BradyCardia (http://bit.ly/BradyCardiaEMN.
