Podcast 23 - ICMS ACG 2017 Day 1 Part 2

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Saturday, December 30, 2017, In : Conferences 


This is the second part of a three-part series of summaries that cover the two days of the ICMS Annual General Congress in earlier in December.

The topics covered included human factors, situational awareness and race resource management, research in driver physiology and safety in powerboat racing. Vincenzo Tota wasn't able to come and present his talk on concussion attributed to rigid race seat headrests in DTM cars (you can read about this in an earlier Rollcage Medic article - ) and was re...

Motorcycle rescue sim from SMACC Dublin 2016

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Sunday, April 2, 2017, In : Conferences 

Training as a team is really important. Technical skills are honed, communication becomes targeted and succinct and deficits are identified and can be troubleshot. Organising and running team training sessions takes a lot of work and commitment on everyone's part, but it pays dividends.

The Social Media And Critical Care (SMACC) conference does its best to evolve each year and seeks to explore some of the outer edge areas of acute care medicine. Last year's conference was held in Dublin and am...

Podcast 14 - Dan Marin, the ICMS and PRI_2015

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, In : Interviews 
Motorsport medicine is a lot of fun. There are fast cars, (mostly) good drivers and you get to work with a small group of similarly aligned individuals in a fairly challenging environment. Often it's the social aspect and the things that you learn along the way that keeps you coming back.

And medical conferences play on that socialising/networking/learing framework. So thankfully there are a handful of motorsport medicine conferences at various times of the year. Last year I went to my second ...

Podcast 10 - Hugh Scully and Rob Seal - Part I - History, Track craft and Crew Retention

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Monday, March 9, 2015, In : Interviews 


Doha was fun! Not as much fun as Istanbul two years ago, but still fun. Hopefully you've had a chance to skim through the overviews of the two day Medicine in Motorsport conference, held as part of the FIA AGM last December which I posted a while ago, so you know roughly what was discussed. Certainly the social program at Istanbul was a lot better, but this time I met a lot more people and really interesting people. It's really clear that there are a bunch of really smart individuals who work...

Podcast 4 - Interview with Dr Terry Trammell - Part II

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Thursday, January 16, 2014, In : Interviews 
Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Saturday, October 5, 2013

Yes, I know, it's been a while. I've been off chasing rally cars in Coff's Coast at the WRC Rally Australia and been part of the Bedside Critical Care Conference so time seems to have slid past. However, it's time to get part two of the Terry Trammell interview up, so here it is.

In this half, Terry and I talk about the position of the driver's body in an open-wheel, open-cockpit race car and how it predisposes to vertebral injury. We ...

The logistics behind providing medical and rescue cover for motorsports events with Tony Harris

Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Thursday, January 16, 2014, In : Interviews 
Posted by Matthew Mac Partlin on Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I've just spent the weekend working with the Motorsport Safety and Rescue (MSR) team providing medical cover for the FIA International Rally of Queensland. During the weekend I had the opportunity to sit down with Tony Harris, an intensive care paramedic with wilderness rescue training from Tasmania who has taken on the role of Motorsport Co-ordinator for MSR.

I've been used to simply turning up, doing the job and going home at the end ...
