Local anaesthetics, nitrous and ketamine! Dr Nick Lelos joins me for episode 11 where we discuss all things neuro pharmacology. Nick is an ED registrar who is interested in trauma, speaks multiple languages and reckons studying for the primary is worse than learning Russian. Go figure.
This is an enormous topic so don’t feel overwhelmed – this will be an episode you might have to come back to a few times. I found learning these drugs really challenging because there is SO MUCH information in the textbook. Ultimately I got there by just learning all of the stuff on ED Vivas (Thanks Luke!) and then adding to that any additional information I picked up from MCQ’s that I failed along the way.
I have uploaded my notes from this topic below – not as many cute images but is literally all that I learned so if it’s not on there, you don’t probably need it to pass. Note, this statement was not endorsed by ACEM (!!) 😂

Thanks for content – listening to how you and your guests present the answers verbally is so much more helpful than simply studying or reading answers from other resources. Really appreciate Dr Lelos’ expertise and explanations, as well as his sense of humour – proving studying for this exam can be fun after all! Have you considered making videos of your answers with props?
Thanks Joe, that is a great idea! Sometimes its hard to get the anatomy stuff right when you have to draw or explain something – I will definitely consider it!
