    Episode 008 – Not Everyone Is Drug Seeking

    Episode 008 – Not Everyone Is Drug Seeking

    Many healthcare workers become jaded by taking care of patients who regularly abuse drugs and seek more potent medications during their admissions (often times saying they have an “allergy” to more traditional analgesics).

    Episode 004 – What Are Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) And Cardioplegia?

    Episode 004 – What Are Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) And Cardioplegia?

    As a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist, I have been trained extensively in cases which require cardiopulmonary bypass (“the heart-lung machine”).
