Rapid Review: Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

This is a new type of post for First10EM. I frequently come across excellent papers that contain just a little too much information for the Articles of the Month reviews, but don’t really fit with the first 10 minutes resuscitation theme of the website. Up until now, I have simply not been sharing the information in these papers, but that seems like a bit of a waste. This is this trial of a new type of post – the rapid reviews – where I will briefly review the key points from a paper I read. Let me know what you think. If it needs to die, this can be the last post. If you like these, I will keep them coming.
