Muscular claustrophobia: A case on a blog

Chris Nickson at Life in the Fast Lane demonstrated how blogging can be used effectiely in medical education. Believe me, going through such a case presentation is much more useful than reading about it in a medical book. It’s also interactive as student/collegues can leave comments, ask questions, etc.

A 27 year-old man sustained an undisplaced midshaft fracture of his left tibia after his girlfriend inadvertently (or so she said…) backed into him in her car, with the rear bumper pinning his leg against the car behind. Following an orthopedic consult, he was put in a long leg cast and sent home, with orthopedics follow up arranged for the next day.

Read the case, go through the questions, engage in discussions.

    There are plenty more on the way!
