Rob has been teaching me valuable and practical information for working in the ER for years - he also has this voice that makes me think that I can be a little more confident in my knowledge base and get more done for patients so it’s an intellectual and emotional supportMaria Grotz NP

Classic Internal Medicine situation where we have to be careful of the ‘yes the patient died, but he had better numbers when he died’ scenario. When orthodoxy gets accepted too quickly, unintended consequences with worrisome outcomes may occur.

Relevant and reliable

The Best Info & The Best Delivery You Can Find

by Kodiak PA on Feb 17, 2018

Dr. Rob Orman is not only an awesome medical educator he is also a consummate “radio voice” both entertaining, funny, compassionate and brilliant. I’ve been listening to Robbo for over 6 years and my practice as a rural family practice provider has improved because of him. Dr. Orman also has an interest in primary care (that is appearing more and more in the ER as access is decreasing) and he expertly incorporates this info in the ER Cast discussions. In other words you don’t have to a dedicated ER provider to get a lot of useful information out of his presentations. Listen to a few of his podcasts and you’ll see what I mean. You’ll be hooked. His effort is obvious and his guests that he gets on the program are some of the best experts in their fields. This is a 5-Star program.

Doctor or patient, the content is relevant and intriguingly conveyed.

Dr. Orman proves an excellent host. He is easy-going with his guests, which creates an atmosphere for thought provoking questions and answers. The content is relevant and he stays on topic, keeping the listener interested and engaged. I come away with a better understanding and a desire to dig deeper into each discussion Dr. Orman has so obviously taken time to research and prepare.

Informative without being boring!

Glad you are continuing the show. Entertaining and engaging host. Learned a lot as an RN from this show. Always recomend it to my freinds as one of the first FOAM podcasts they should try. If you like what you hear consider subscribing to EMRAP or Primary Care RAP both of which the host is greatly involved with. You get CE and more really entertaing and educational podcasts every month.

As one who has only recently discovered ERCast - I have been tremendously impressed by the superb efforts of Dr. Rob Orman. I've already "combed the archives" to record past issues. Rob gets the BEST to join him as his guests - he moderates skillfully drawing out key points. I LOVE the way he summarizes what was presented with wonderful synthesis. Fun and highly educational to listen to - and truly a source of info not available elsewhere. Please KEEP UP the FANTASTIC work Rob! - Ken Grauer, MD

Dr. Orman does a fantastic job of helping you understand EM from the consultant's perspective and how they manage the things we see everyday. In addition, his interviews of other EM leaders in the field are invaluable. Each episode is packed with great pearls that you can use on your next shift. If you practice in emergency medicine, you have to listen to this podcast.

Wow. Great podcast to expand and fine-tune medical base. Love that practice standards are reviewed as well as differences in opinion. Especially like his forthrightness when the "why" of a particular standard is experience-based rather than scientifically-based. Both are equally important in practice. Besides, he's also very entertaining.

Entertaining an educational.

Have been a practicing ER physician for 5 years and think this Podcast is excellent. I listen to alot of different Podcasts and think this is one of the best I have heard. It is short but sweet giving the practicing physician what he needs to know without getting bogged into mundane details. I listen to it in the car on the way to work and always find it helpful, enjoyable, and I learn a lot. Thanks Rob for all you do.Adam R.Practicing physician in Charlottesville, VA

Being a busy practicing Board Certified Emergency Physician, I'm always looking for a way to keep current and refresh on the go (in the car typically). Few programs/podcasts are as clinically relevant and potentially practice changing as Dr. Orman's project. The question and answer format with specialists in the field is engaging and a wonderful departure from Audio Digest. Between it, EM:RAP and EmCrit, you're covered. Thanks Doc O!

RNs benefit, too

by New RN in PDX on Sep 04, 2011
Rating: ★★★★★

As a new RN in the ED, I can use all the tips and tricks that I can get my gloves on. Dr. Orman's podcasts, while aimed at the ED physician, are full of little pearls that are helping ME help my ED docs take better care of our patients. Not only have I learned about manually irrigating bladders in hematuria patients (which I promptly did with confidence for the first time within a week of listening to that episode), I now understand more about hyponatremia and why the doc is or is not getting excited about that sodium level. Plus the learning is interspersed with laughing and that's gotta counteract new nurse burnout, right? Thanks for a great resource!
