    Food impaction during the holidays

    Food impaction during the holidays

    Today's episode is a bit specific to the holidays! While these days are filled with family, friends, laughter, food, and drinks, in healthcare, we know there's another side most don't see. 
    We know that congestive heart failure exacerbations increase due to an increased salt intake. Patients come in with holiday heartburn and gastroenteritis from food that was left out. But, there's one diagnosis thats the scourge of the holidays...
    If the holidays were Santa, then this diagnosis is the grinch that stole your admission. Today, we'll be discussing esophageal issues, primarily we'll be talking about food impactions.
    This is a quick and low down dirty talk about what to do with food impactions and the background regarding certain esophageal emergencies!

    Things We Do for No Reason, Part 1 (GI Edition)

    Things We Do for No Reason, Part 1 (GI Edition)

    This week, Dr. Sonpal will be covering part 1 of "Things We Do for No Reason."

    Why talk about the things we do for no reason?

    Have you ever ordered a test and thought "there has to be something better"? Have you ever found out that a test you used to order has been replaced? If you answered yes to either of these questions (or both), this episode is for you.

    In this episode, Dr. Sonpal summarizes what he believes to be the key GI takeaways from "Choosing Wisely: Things We Do For No Reason". 


    Don't forget, we'll be releasing a new episode every Monday at 4am PST, where we'll discuss a new primary care and/or internal medicine based topic.

    The "Red Zone" Part 1

    The "Red Zone" Part 1

    Today, we'd like to introduce Dr. Niket Sonpal as the new host of the Medgeeks podcast! 
    Who is Dr. Sonpal? Well, besides being an internist and gastroenterologist, he's an assistant professor at Touro College of Medicine in Harlem New York. In addition to that, he's had the fortunate opportunity to be the co-author of "Master the Boards USMLE Step 2 and Step 3" . He's also faculty at Medquest Board review and was faculty at Kaplan for their medical test prep. He's also done a variety of lectures with Medgeeks as well. 
    All these things combined has led to a 10 year history of teaching students medicine, the boards, and of course the grand round circuit. 
    Today, we'll be going over some background data and the management of upper GI bleed. The reason for making this the very first episode is based on the fact that the guidelines have just been updated as of May 2021. So, the data presented today and the summation of it, will help you get through taking care of your patients who have upper GI bleeds.
    Dr. Sonpal likes to think of this podcast as your digital grand rounds.
    So, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Red Zone Part 1.

    Heart Failure with the CardioNerds Part 3

    Heart Failure with the CardioNerds Part 3

    I recently had the privilege of sitting down with three cardiology fellows who also have their own podcast 'The Cardio Nerds'. This is the last part of a three part series on heart failure. If you haven't listened to parts one or two yet, be sure to listen to both before starting this episode. 
    Today, we are focusing entirely on management: how do we treat heart failure and how do we manage these patients long term. We discuss the importance of crucial lifestyle changes for these patients, pharmacology, and non-pharmacological interventions.
