    SOAP Notes

    SOAP Notes

    Hi everyone you are listening to the Medgeeks podcast, thank you so much for joining. Today we're going to be talking about clinical documentation specifically, the SOAP note. Clinical documentation is incredibly important an essential skill for every clinician to master. Many people are not familiar with the proper way to write a SOAP note, I get sent a lot of questions on this, so that's why we're going to go over it today. Before you change the channel, I promise, there are going to be a lot of Pearls packed into this episode, so stick with me. I promise you'll like it. Let's get going.

    NS vs LR

    Greetings friends you're listening to the Medgeeks podcast. Today's episode is brought to you by Andy. Andy is a student who wrote into me at askmedgeeks.com with following question:  normal saline versus lactated ringers, which is better for the hypotensive patient? In practice, I’ve seen them used interchangeably, but which is better? This is a fantastic question and is going to be the subject of today’s podcast. So let's jump in.

    Hypersensitivity Reactions

    Hypersensitivity Reactions

    A 16 year old male is being seen in the ER for cellulitis and a skin abscess. He has already undergone I & D of the abscess and he's waiting to be discharged. You order a shot of Clindamycin, 600mg to be given IM prior to his discharge. Five minutes later, you're called back into the room and you see the patient is in respiratory distress and having very labored breathing. His face is puffy and his voice sounds muffled.
    As you consider what to do next, you are struck with a very important question. What type of hypersensitivity reaction is this again? Is it the one with IgE, type 1, type 2, I can't quite remember. Okay, not really that's really not the most important thing at the moment, you know its anaphylaxis, you know that you need to give him Epi; so you draw up 0.5mg and you give it IM, probably saving this guy's life.
    So I'll admit maybe the type of hypersensitivity reaction isn't the most clinically relevant information in a crisis situation, but I will say hypersensitivity reactions are high-yield in terms of board review, and they also shed light on the pathophysiology behind many common diseases. Today on the Medgeeks podcast we discuss hypersensitivity reactions.

    Mechanical Ventilation 101 For Providers

    We recently held a live training to discuss mechanical ventilation for providers (especially for those without any experience).
    There are many being deployed to help, that aren't versed in vents, and so we held this to give you the basics regarding mechanical ventilation.
    This is the replay of that training, along with a Q&A session at the end of the training.

    COVID-19 Update

    COVID-19 Update

    Hello everybody Welcome to the Medgeeks podcast, this is your host Eric Gordon and today we're talking about COVID-19. This is going to be an update, you know we did the earlier COVID episode about a month ago now, a lot has changed since that time. When I recorded the last show there were about 100,000 cases worldwide and 164 confirmed cases in the US.
    Today those numbers are 1.8, million, and 556,000, obviously from a numbers standpoint, things have increased dramatically as somewhat expected. 
    Everyone listening to this right now has been affected by COVID-19, whether it's because you are a hospital or a critical care provider, seeing these patients caring for them daily. Maybe you work in Rheumatology and you've had to shut down your office. Maybe you're taking a pay cut because you've worked in surgery and now you have to only do emergent cases. 
    Perhaps you've been laid off completely. I know there's a lot of students out there who listen to this podcast and I know they're being affected by this. You can't go to class right now, your clinical rotations are being put on hold, graduations are being delayed as a result. It really is a difficult, and heartbreaking situation that we're all going through and everyone's experiencing it a little bit differently. 
    Before we jump into the information that I wanted to cover today, I want to let y'all know that I want to use this podcast to grow our community, bring us together through this, as you probably know, we use the website askmedgeeks.com for you to submit questions that you want answered here on the podcast. I’d like to utilize that website in a little bit of a different way. 
    I want to hear from you all about your experiences with COVID. If it's you personally, maybe a co-worker, a friend that you know that works in healthcare, I'd really like to hear a story about how it's affecting you guys. What we as healthcare workers are going through and doing in response to COVID-19, so if you have a story that you would like for me to share here on the podcast just to kind of bring us all together please send that to askmedgeeks.com, it's gonna say “what's your question for the podcast?”, but for this just send me some information. I want to hear from y'all, and of course, let me know if you feel comfortable with me, utilizing your name, when I do read the story or not.
     
    As far as what we're going to talk about today, you know, last time we kind of talked about background information, the biology of SARS coronavirus 2. Today let's start by talking about some Updated STATs, and then we're going to talk about a little bit more of a deeper dive into treatment. 
     
    So this data was pulled from April 13, just like last time these numbers are going to be outdated almost immediately but this from April 13. 
    The worldwide number of cases is about 1.8 million, and the worldwide death count is 117,000. In the United States there are 566,000 cases and approximately 23,000 deaths. New York State has 10,000, of those deaths. 
    Over the past several days, the number of new hospitalizations and ICU admissions has slowed down a little bit in New York City however the daily death rate in New York City is at kind of a steady, yet alarmingly high plateau for the past few days, seeing over 700 deaths per day, due to COVID-19.

    Aortic Dissection

    Aortic Dissection

    Your next patient is a 62yo M brought to the emergency department complaining of acute onset chest pain that radiates to his neck.
    The EKG is normal sinus rhythm (NSR) with no ischemic changes. The patient’s blood pressure is 164/92 in the right arm; and 132/78 in the left arm.
    What's the next step for this patient? What labs do we need? What imaging do we need? This is a patient who very well may die today if you don't do things correctly and quickly.
    Today on the Medgeek's podcast we discuss Aortic Dissection.

Thanks for explaining TTP

I listened to the episode on TTP. I was happy to stumble upon the case because it’s was eerily close to what experienced and now I have more of an understanding of how it works. I will be able to share the episode with friends and family who ask “so what is that?”.

Great Show for struggling students

I absolutely love this podcast. I listen to it on my long trip to clinicals. When are new episodes coming! I’m all caught up.

Great for non clinicians too

I work in healthcare IT and these podcasts have been a helpful way to increase my understanding of terminology and the way care is taught/approached. I feel like it’s helped me help my clinicians more.
