Scott Weingart is Chief of the Division of Emergency Critical Care at Stony Brook Hospital, New York, and a regular and much anticipated speaker at the SMACC conferences.
You will most likely recognise his Yankee accent from the renowned EMCrit podcast, an invaluable contribution to the FOAMed world devoted to translating the most recent evidenced-based Critical Care medicine to use at the ED bedside.
A self-declared ED Intensivist, Scott is dedicated to bringing the Upstairs, Downstairs – bringing ICU level care to the Emergency Department.
We spoke to Scott after his engaging opening talk at SMACC Chicago.
We discussed one of the trending themes at SMACC 2015, the growing popularity of clinical guidelines and resulting devaluation of clinical experience.
