Medic999 has become the first EMS related blogger to host the Grand Rounds blog carnival. This hosts blogs from all fields of medicine, not just our small world of emergency medicine. Yours truly has been added to the list of blogs showcased, but there are many, many more that are well worth a read. Look here for some insights and inspiration into a whole range of topics from the world of medicine, from my favourite topic of sleep to successful resus attempts, and from caring for kids to the safest handshake in this swine flu season. These are just a snapshot. There are many more.
