This week’s recommendation is a podcast by the wonderful Andrew Sloas at PEM ED Podcast.

He tells us how to get foreign objects out of ears without the melodrama of drugs, sedation, and operating theatres.

All you need is a 1ml syringe (or insulin syringe), some glue, and a steady hand. I cannot wait to try this technique.

If you only listen to one podcast this week. Make it this one.

Listen to the podcast.
