Founder, Chief Editor
I am Shahriar Lahouti and RECAP EM is my primary FOAMed project. The philosophy of RECAP EM is to promote critical thinking and enlightening the mindsets with the most rational, current evidence towards a safer practice.
This site is created in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic when the urge to access new opinions and trusted information is felt more than ever before.

I am an EM physician. I went to medical school at the Iran University of Medical Science. My passion for emergency medicine led me up to complete my EM residency training at the Iran University. Currently I work as consultant emergency physician in Treetop Hospital in Maldives.
My interests include education, resuscitation, ultrasound, skiing.
I have no conflict of interest. I receive no money from any sites, drug companies, or this site either.
