    Life-Threatening Asthma

    Life-Threatening Asthma

    Approximately 2 million patients present each year to EDs in the United States for acute asthma exacerbations.  Of these, up to 50,000 may require ICU admission for continued care and resuscitation.  The management of critically ill asthmatic patients can be fraught with peril.  In this podcast we discuss the assessment and management of patients presenting with a severe asthma exacerbation.

    Refractory OHCA - Does ECPR and Early Angiography Improve Outcome?

    Refractory OHCA - Does ECPR and Early Angiography Improve Outcome?

    In a recent podcast we reviewed the ARREST Trial, which demonstrated significant improvement in survival among OHCA patients at a single center randomized to ECPR and early coronary angiography upon arrival.  In this podcast we discuss the latest trial to investigate whether a bundle of early transport, ECPR, and coronary angiography improves favorable neurologic survival in patients with refractory OHCA.

    Low-Tidal Volume Ventilation in the ED - Does it Make a Difference?

    Low-Tidal Volume Ventilation in the ED - Does it Make a Difference?

    Though low-tidal volume ventilation has been shown to decreased mortality in patients with ARDS, the use of these settings in mechanically ventilated ED patients has been variable.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent systematic review that examined the effect of low-tidal volume ventilation in the ED on clinical outcomes including mortality, length of stay, occurrence of ARDS, and duration of mechanical ventilation.

    The PLUS Study

    The PLUS Study

    Though we’ve discussed the use of balanced solutions in the resuscitation of critically ill patients numerous times on CCPEM, the literature remains controversial with mixed results as to which IVFs are superior.  In this podcast, we discuss the latest randomized trial, the PLUS Study, comparing the use of balanced multielectrolyte solution and 0.9% normal saline.

    The Critically Ill Patient with HHS

    The Critically Ill Patient with HHS

    Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar syndrome (HHS) is a potentially life-threatening hyperglycemic emergency that has a mortality that can be 10 times as high compared with patients who have diabetic ketoacidosis. Resuscitation of these complex patients can be fraught with peril and result in patient harm and poor outcomes.  In this podcast, we discuss the identification and resuscitation of patients with HHS.

    Ketamine or Etomidate for RSI?

    Ketamine or Etomidate for RSI?

    Etomidate and ketamine are frequently used for RSI in critically ill patients.  Recent articles have raised concern about an increased incidence of post-intubation hypotension in patients who receive ketamine for RSI.  Notwithstanding, is either agent superior for RSI in the critically ill?  In this podcast we discuss the recently published EvK trial, which evaluated etomidate and ketamine for RSI in emergency endotracheal intubations.
