    Interesting Studies, Facts, & Opinions - April 2020 edition

    If you wonder why good food is more important than mortality and why ordering too many unnecessary consults worsens the food and doesn't impact mortality - this episode is for you. Tramadol is not well understood by many prescribers and there are some emerging facts we all need to know. A flashback to diuretic use in congestive heart failure with fluid overload and elevated creatinine is also discussed somewhere in the mix. Ohhh...and stop systematically prescribing nicotine replacement at high dosages for all hospitalized smokers.

Pleasantly educational

Dr Porat does a lovely job of not putting me to sleep. I can actually tolerate listening to each episode start to finish and actually retain the information. Thanks!

My favorite IM podcast

I'm an internal medicine resident in Canada and I listen to these almost every day on my walk in to work.
The 15-25min duration ones are the perfect timing from start to finish.
I would love more cardiac-related episodes if you ever have the time for a series ! Thanks for continuing to make these!!!
