Brought to you by a partnership that transcends the 49th parallel. Join Adam Thomas and Josh Farkas in the podcast that accompanies The Internet Book of Critical Care.
The IBCC podcast will explore key points in each chapter. Initially the release of podcasts may lag a bit behind the chapters for logistic reasons. However, our goal is to eventually have a podcast for each chapter. Subsequently, the podcast will discuss updates to the IBCC based on new evidence.
In this episode we continue on the path of DIC: the scary sub-phenotype that is Purpura Fulminans. When your patient is necrosing everything, you need to act quickly before they start losing organs and digits. Come listen for identification, anticoagulation, protein C and all its goodness, when to give Vitamin K, and why to really be careful about Warfarin.
Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation
In this episode, we cover disseminated intravascular coagulation. It sounds bad, because it is. Come listen and refresh your skills around supporting the bleed-bleedy versus the cloth-clotty, how to differentiate DIC and chronic liver failure and a few more juicy clinical pearls.
In this episode, we cover the spectrum of lithium toxicity, from the acute ingestion, to the patient with saturated brain tissue. Come take a listen to explore the nuances around volume repletion, when or should you reach for dialysis, what SILENT is or does it exist.
Toxic Shock Syndrome
In this episode we cover those super antigens that cause all the trouble with staph and strep infections. Come take a listen around pathophysiology, identification, antimicrobials and all things IVIG.
In this episode, we cover the OG-Farkas description of the age-old interplay between bradycardia / renal failure / AV nodal blocking agent / Shock / and Hyperkalemia. Don't just try and snipe one off at a time, carpet bomb them all at once.
Massive Transfusion Protocol
In this episode we cover the crucial approach to what drives hemorrhagic shock: lots of bleeding. Come take a listen for the nuances around an organized approach to 1:1:1 and may we be as bold to say... 1:1:1:1 (fibrinogen, YAY). All things hypocalcemia, hypothermia, acidosis and what lines to use.
