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.
Sodium Channel Blocker Toxicity
In this episode we cover one of the hallmarks of the poisoned patient, that ECG tracing with a widening QRS. After reading the post, come listen for the nuances around all things hypertonic bicarb for sodium delivery, preventing acidosis with isotonic bicarb, how those sneaky-brilliant toxicologists will use lidocaine, and when to push the "panic button" on intralipid.
Valproic Acid Toxicity
In this episode we cover the obvious, and subtleties around Valproic Acid toxicities. We talk everything from cerebral edema, giving that L-Carnitine and when to spin that IHD machine.
COVID-19 Update #8
In this episode we summarize the new COVID Chapter (well not so new, but spot on predictions from Jan 26th).
Steroids = Yes. Dose... 6mg and keep going up?
Toci / Bari = maybe
Cocktails / Plasma = Nope
Come take a listen for all things anticoagulation, immune modulation and organ support.
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.
