Other components look at body-worn cameras and operations in extreme heat, while additional features tackle statistics, long QT syndrome, and Mental Health First Aid, and the CE article discusses hypercoagulopathy in COVID patients. This month's columns and departments include Resident Eagle, Journal Watch, Student Corner, Leader's Digest, and Association Update.
