Cliff was asked to speak at the Australasian Conference for Emergency Medicine‘s Annual Scientific Conference in Adelaide in November 2013. The title they gave him was ‘What a great job’. It was a great opportunity for him to explore some of the literature around what makes people happy, and whether emergency medicine has the ingredients to do that. It does. But not if you do too much.

The discussion of verapamil as an option for the treatment of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) in RAGE Session Two went off like a fire cracker in the FOAM world.

In this RAGEback, Minh Le Cong from the PHARM podcast explains why the RAGE discussion is not going to change his practice, which is to use adenosine as a first line agent.

This is followed by a response by RAGErs Karel and Cliff.

You — the listener — are left to make up your own mind about which patients (if any) you’ll consider verapamil as an option.
