Hey folks. As I get ready for ACEP, I just wanted to get a quick podcast put up. One of the listeners requested an episode on the treatment of hyperkalemia in the ED.
This week we talk about managing the intra-arrest period of cardiac arrest. My paradigm has changed dramatically over the past few years. In the past, I viewed the arrest as a period to teach my residents how to place a subclavian central line, how to intubate when the patient is moving, and how to cram as many drugs as possible into a patient in a short period of time. Looking at how I manage an arrest today, so much has changed.
After the meningitis episode, one of the listeners, David Thomas, recommended I check out a new opthalmoscope from a UK company.
I’m lecturing at ACEP in Las Vegas this year. This is one of two lectures I’m giving there. If you are going to the conference and plan on coming to my lecture, don’t listen to this lecture; I’d rather you here the real one in person.
This week we discuss the resuscitation of the hemorrhagic shock patient with Dr. Richard Dutton, MD.
