    Podcast 115 - Prolonged Q-T Syndrome w/ Jake Good

    Yesterday Sam released a blog on the various flavors of prolonged Q-T syndrome. As a complement to that blog, Sam and Jake sit down and tease out some of the nuances and treatments of this interesting pathology.

    Podcast 114 - Vent Strategies & Metabolic Acidosis w/ Bryan Winchell

    Podcast 114 - Vent Strategies & Metabolic Acidosis w/ Bryan Winchell

    Yesterday I posted the blog "Ventilation - Playing Defense." The blog addressed the reasons why we don't want to intubate a patient in metabolic acidosis, the correlation between VBG & ABG, and the importance of knowing your ETCO2 to PaCO2 gradient.

     

    In part two of this discussion (the podcast), Sam and I invite Bryan Winchell on to discuss the logistics of actually setting up the ventilator and settings that we think are helpful.

     

    1. Optimize volume first and then take advantage of the "no-flow" zone to add in breaths.
     
    2. The width of your flow waveform will tell you whether or not more inspiratory time will = more volume.
     
    3.These patients typically don't need a ton of PEEP because they are spending such a short time exhaling (due to the fast rate). PEEP of zero is probably ok because the pressure will likely never truly get to zero. If a PEEP of zero gives you visceral pain, 3-5 mmHg is a good spot to start.

    Podcast 113- DON'T stop the insulin!

    Podcast 113- DON'T stop the insulin!

    We realized the other day that we have yet to do a podcast on diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). In this episode, we spend a little bit of time talking about the pathophysiology, but the majority is focused on the logistics of running a DKA transfer. Here are the highlights:

     

    DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO AVOID STOPPING THE INSULIN.

     

    DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO AVOID STOPPING THE INSULIN.

     

    DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO AVOID STOPPING THE INSULIN.

     

    The way you do this safely is by pre-planning! Ask for these things before you leave the hospital:

     

    IV Potassium
    Liter bag of D5W
    Bag of lactated ringers
    Three amps of sodium bicarbonate (if renal failure is suspected)
    If I add weak acids (ketones) into the anion side, the body will dump bicarbonate to maintain electrical neutrality. The only way to get the bicarbonate to return to normal is to get rid of the ketones.

     

    I got rid of all my ketones but my bicarb has not returned to normal!! Why?!

    You gave too much chloride which is now hogging all the anion space.
    The kidneys aren't working properly and you need to give sodium bicarbonate.

    Podcast 112 - When Mental Models #FAIL w/ Tom Grawey & Bryan Selvage

    Podcast 112 - When Mental Models #FAIL w/ Tom Grawey & Bryan Selvage

    So, my buddy, Bryan Selvage released a blog a few weeks ago called "The Curious Case of The Brain & The Octopus Trap." This case study caught me off guard because it did not match my mental model of a brain bleed patient. I called Bryan and had a great conversation regarding mental models and how they can either make us look like we have superhuman powers or trip us up.

     

    Bryan started working on a blog to address the perils of mental models at the same time my friend Tom Grawey was writing a piece for FOAMfrat on the "sick versus not sick" assessment. Both of the blogs complimented each other perfectly and I figured we could do a podcast and release both blogs as a package.
     
    I loved the discussion and feel this will likely lead to more podcasts/blogs down the road. Would love to hear what some of my friends like Cliff Reid, Mike Brown, and Michael Lauria have to say on this topic.

     

    Now let's get to the podcast!

    Podcast 110 - Resus Tempo w/ Keith Velaski

    Podcast 110 - Resus Tempo w/ Keith Velaski

    I am thrilled to finally get my friend and colleague, Keith Velaski, on the podcast. Keith was my preceptor at LifeLink III and has been a flight clinician for over 25 years. In this episode, we talk about the tempo and mental modeling of resuscitation and flight medicine. This podcast was inspired by my buddy Alex Jones who just started his career in HEMS and sent me this message a few weeks ago.
    Just got off shift and had saved this in the notes on my phone.  I’m a new flight medic and am still getting into my groove.  If you can decipher this and have any kind of feedback, I’d love your thoughts 
     
    Best sequence for assessment
    Scene and interfacility follow up questions geared towards interfacility
    Dividing rolls with partners
    ie do you both receive report, does one take report and the other makes patient contact, or something else?
    Key labs/imaging based off physical exam findings/chief complaint/HPI
    What if they haven’t been done/ordered?
    What’s worth staying at bedside to obtain/initiate?
    How much is flight time a consideration if at all?
    How much emphasis do you put on-scene times?
    Not sure how intelligible this is, just 2am thoughts jotted into my notes on shift.
    Alex, this podcast is for you!
