Not just for the Critical Care Pharmacist

It’s great how the host and his guests break down complicated topics for any healthcare provider to follow along and apply into practice.

Great!

Great in depth podcasts in critical care pharmacotherapy. The Jan 2 podcast sound quality was horrendous for a topic much needed. I would like to hear more of things that make pharmacotherapy unique rather than general. I think pharmacists can create a unique educational niche as it relates to patient specific extremes such as body weight and other descriptors. I hope to hear more pharmacodynamic and kinetic, rather than pathophysiologic, discussions.

Hard to hear in car

Good content. Hard to hear the guests-poor sound quality.
