Care of Wounds (Postoperative or Other)
Basic Wound Care: Clinical Skills
Oxford University Medical School - YouTube - Basic Wound Care: Clinical Skills - "This video - produced by students at Oxford University Medical School in conjunction with the faculty - demonstrates the principles and techniques underlying basic wound care. It is part of a series of videos covering clinical skills and is linked to Oxford Medical Education"
Doppler Exam of Arteries
Arterial Doppler Examination
Huntleigh Diagnostics - YouTube - Arterial Doppler Examination - "This video shows how to interpret vascular arterial doppler signal wave-forms in a simple and informative fashion. This is educational especially in teaching how to better utilise a simple hand-held Doppler."

The New England Journal of Medicine - Videos in Clinical Medicine - Fiberoptic Intubation - "Fiberoptic intubation plays an important part in the management of a difficult airway and is recommended by many societies of anesthesia. It is primarily important for the management of the anticipated difficult airway, but can also be used to secure the airway in an unexpected situation. There are different techniques for both situations -- the nasal and oral approach in the awake and anesthetized status, respectively. The choice of the equipment and medication is primarily dependent on personal preference." - Fiberoptic Intubation Thomas Heidegger, M.D. N Engl J Med 2011; 364:e42 May 19, 2011 DOI: 10.1056/NEJMvcm0906443
The New England Journal of Medicine - Videos in Clinical Medicine - Nasogastric Intubation - "Common indications for nasogastric intubation include decompression of the GI tract in patients with bowel obstruction and gastric emptying in intubated patients to prevent aspiration. NG tubes may be placed as an adjunct for the delivery of oral agents, such as activated charcoal or oral radiographic contrast medium. NG tubes are often placed in patients with suspected upper GI hemorrhage. However, the sensitivity and negative predictive value of nasogastric aspirates for detecting active bleeding is suboptimal, and the absence of bloody return cannot be relied upon to rule out hemorrhage." - Nasogastric Intubation Todd W. Thomsen, M.D., Robert W. Shaffer, M.D., and Gary S. Setnik, M.D. N Engl J Med 2006; 354:e16 April 27, 2006 DOI: 10.1056/NEJMvcm050183
The New England Journal of Medicine - Videos in Clinical Medicine - Orotracheal Intubation - "Emergency orotracheal intubation is indicated in any situation in which definitive control of the airway is needed. Specific indications include cardiac or respiratory arrest, failure to protect the airway from aspiration, inadequate oxygenation or ventilation, and impending or existing airway obstruction. Orotracheal intubation is also commonly performed as part of the care of the critically ill patient with multisystem disease or injuries, and to facilitate control of the airway during surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia." - Orotracheal Intubation Christopher Kabrhel, M.D., Todd W. Thomsen, M.D., Gary S. Setnik, M.D., and Ron M. Walls, M.D. N Engl J Med 2007; 356:e15 April 26, 2007 DOI: 10.1056/NEJMvcm063574

Veins have a 3-layered wall composed of an internal endothelium surrounded by a thin layer of muscle fibers, which in turn is surrounded by a layer of connective tissue."
