Medical Simulation Weblog
I found a neat new weblog called SimBlog. Associated with the Society for Medical Simulation, it appears to be edited by Jeff Taekman, formerly of Penn State and the person I came to Hershey to work with. Jeff had moved to Duke by the time I arrived, and is now the Associate Dean for Technology in Education there.

Four Drug Rep Tricks Plus One Of My Own
Polite Dissent is a blog I just discovered thanks to Grand Rounds. He/she has the same take on some of the techniques used by drug detail people as I do:
- False agreements
- Fake Thanks
- Bring the Boss
- Appeal to Authority
I'll just add my own to this very good list: use the people around you as billboards. It seems the people who make a paralytic called rocuronium have dropped off a thousand or so yellow operating room caps that say "Roc Solid" (Roc is our abbreviation for rocuronium, aka Zemuron). Many OR nurses and techs are now wearing these caps. My reaction? Even if I was planning on using rocuronium for the case, I'll draw up some tasty vecuronium or cis-atracurium instead. And besides, the vecuronium people gave me a nice nerve stimulator once...

Unusual Venue for a Tribute: iTunes Music Store
I ran across an unusual, but moving, tribute from a son to his mother. I say 'unusual' mainly because of where I found it--on the iTunes Music Store. I'll post it below for you to consider:
For those of you with iTunes, you can see the iMix.
