    Did you know that intravenous labetalol and oral labetalol are not really similar? The great hydralazine debate. Things you must know about Clevidipine if you are going to use it.

    Did you know systolic and diastolic blood pressure are NOT measured by automated BP cuffs? PRES (Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome), also known as RPLS (Reversible Posterior Leukoencephalopathy Syndrome), is something you should recognize when you see it. Brief mentions of esmolol, nitroprusside, and other topics are scattered somewhere in between musings.

Very informative and entertaining

I am a PA-C in internal medicine rounding on both general and ICU floors. I’m jealous of anyone who has Dr Porat as an attending. I appreciate the guidance. Great resource that I can enjoy even on my off days. Keep the episodes coming.

You should listen too!

I have really enjoyed listening for many reasons, but mostly because he is down to earth and a realist, which I can relate to as a Hospitalist and a human being. It’s nice to learn and laugh. Thanks for doing this podcast!
