All anyone is talking about these days is COVID-19. There are already some amazing FOAMed resources out there, such as Josh Farkas’ Internet Book of Critical Care, or the epic post by Salim Resaie on REBELEM. I am not going to reproduce any of that. I just wanted to share the best COVID-19 resources I have found to date; the sites I am turning to on a daily basis. I will continue to update this page as this crisis unfolds, so feel free to forward me web pages and papers that you find particularly useful. (Also, I will be honest, I have been so busy I have lost track of a lot of the great resources I already found.) The research and evidence based medicine stuff will be coming shortly in their own posts. Stay safe out there friends.
FOAMed: The Best Overviews
Maps and Trackers
At this point, most of the maps are probably irrelevant, aside from morbid curiosity. It is everywhere, and we completely missed the boat on containment.
CHIME is an incredibly cool tool from Penn medicine than lets you plug in your own numbers to predict the future volumes at your own hospital. (It only really works for me on a desktop computer.) It is explained here.
Simulation and Education
St Emlyn’s: Sim training for coronavirus (and more)
Canadian specific resources
Emergency department resources
Evidence based medicine
I will have some COVID specific “Research Roundups” out soon.
Journals have COVID specific pages, so you can keep track of the COVID articles they publish:

First10EM COVID Posts
EM:RAP has been putting out amazing content, and making it all open access. It is all being gathered here.
The first EMCases podcast (about diagnosis and management) was great, and it sounds like there are more to come. Part 2 is about surge capacity strategies.

Some great videos from Scott Weingart on airway management and setting up our BVM the right way:
