So begins the new paradigm... ten super-high quality articles in 15 minutes every other week. What is the evidence for high-flow oxygen for cluster headache? Should LMA size be based on actual or ideal body weight for big and small kids? Do healthy people benefit from neuraminidase inhibitors? Should recently vaccinated, febrile 6-12 week infants get a full sepsis work-up? What's the newest shoulder reduction technique that's 90% effective with no sedation? How does SPECT compare with CTPA for PE diagnosis? What is the dose of radiation for common CT scans (it's scary high...)? How many people will get cancer just from the CT scans we did in 2007? Could warfarin have a rival in dabigatran? Should dialysis patients get enoxaparin or eptifibatide when going to PCI (the answer is no!)? Find out all these answers this week in journals!
