Change of Shift Plays Nurse and Other Fun Stuff!


….is over at Nurse Ratched’s Place! Some new nurse bloggers are featured so make sure to check it out! The next edition is back here at Emergiblog so send all your submissions to me – Contact button up top or Blog Carnival will work!



Sumer’s Radiology Site has the latest edition of Radiology Grand Rounds posted.

This edition’s images focus on pediatric aneurysms and include good information on the topic.

If you are interested in pediatrics or work in an ER, this is a good one for you!



Amy Tenderich of Diabetes Mine is spearheading the effort to spread the word about World Diabetes Day, November 14, 2007.

November is actually National Diabetes Month, and you can head over to Amy’s site for information on what is happening to increase the awareness of diabetes.

There is a new blog carnival on the medical horizon!

It’s about emergency medicine and is called the Trauma Center. I received an email from Leigh at Healthline Networks, Inc with the news.

The submissions for the inaugural edition are due Sunday at midnight, Pacific Standard Time and the edition will be posted on November 6th. The link above takes you to the Blog Carnival site for submissions.
