    Ep 195 Management of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Ep 195 Management of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Once the diagnosis of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has been made, our job is not done. Mortality in SAH patients can be up to 30% even without neurological deficit. Paying attention to the time-sensitive details of ED management of SAH patients can have a significant impact on their outcome. In this second part of our 2-part podcast series on subarachnoid hemorrhage with Dr. Katie Lin and Dr. Jeff Perry we answer questions such as: what are the 4 critical priorities in the initial stabilization of the patient with a suspected massive subarachnoid hemorrhage? When is a CT plus CTA of the head indicated up front in the management of patients with suspected subarachnoid hemorrhage? What is the evidence for oral nimodipine in improving outcomes in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage and how does it work? What can we do in the ED to prevent rebleeding in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage? What are the simplest and best prognostic tools available for spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage to help counsel families and patients? and more...

    Ep 192 ED Adult Asthma Management Strategies For Improved Prognosis – A Stepwise Approach

    Ep 192 ED Adult Asthma Management Strategies For Improved Prognosis – A Stepwise Approach

    In this part 1 of our 2-part podcast series on Asthma Management we explore a systematic approach to managing patients presenting to the ED with asthma exacerbations. Our discussion will emphasize the critical role of a thorough history and physical examination in effectively stratifying patient risk and guiding treatment/disposition decisions. Additionally, we'll examine the importance of providing comprehensive discharge medications and instructions to mitigate both mortality and morbidity associated with asthma exacerbations. We answer questions such as: which patients, if any, require peak expiratory flow measurements in the ED? Why is it so important to add steroid MDI therapy to oral steroid therapy in patients being discharged from the ED after an asthma exacerbation? What are the most predictive variables to risk stratify patients with asthma exacerbations to help guide treatment and disposition? and many more. Stay tuned for Part 2, where we'll delve deep into the management of the crashing asthmatic.

Great for emerg nurses too!

I’m an emerg RN and while some of the content is definitely only for physicians, there’s a lot of good gems and explanations of the why for nurses too.

Beat of the best

Simply the best EM postcard out there
Have been listener from the beginning, the episodes are getting better and better. It not only focus on knowledge, but also on self reflection, and EM mindset.
Thanks a lot!
