Karim Brohi. Professor of Vascular and Trauma Surgery in the UK’s number one Trauma centre. This is the home of London HEMS. He is the creator of Trauma.org and ACOTS. And he likes bicycles!
Brilliant. How does this guy get to be this good? Funnily enough the start of Karims research journey is one that us mere mortals can relate to. He may be a very humble guy but the way he describes his first few publications is actually one that any junior researcher can benefit from. It’s refreshingly accessible, as is he.
Karim was a registrar in London when I started as a “Houseman”. He was pretty cool then. He is even cooler, calmer and more collected now. (Even in the face of a hairy fast-talking irish man.)
We go off on a bit of a chat about all sorts; research, poverty, the epidemiology of teenage gang knife use, helicopters and we could have kept going.
The Jellybean Podcasts have been happily at home on Lifeinthefastlane.com
for many a year. Intensive Care Network wanted to carry them too and we were very happy with that. Most of the Jellybean podcasts are relevant to ICU and almost half of them are interviews with intensive care nurses, doctors, social workers and more. At the moment every second week a new ICU relevant podcast goes up here on ICN. In the alternate weeks we go “Redux”. The Jellybean Redux series allows us to revisit previous conversations with ICU people that you may wish to hear. All the podcasts are collected on their home website www.TheTopEnd.org
and you can find them on iTunes and on Stitcher radio. We like to talk so if you want to talk to us about anything please get in touch. You can post comments here or contact Doug Lynch directly via twitter @TheTopEnd
