Three medical students take you on a retrospective and subjective review of high-yield concepts in medicine.
Bayes and BNP
Can a person have two functioning hearts in their chest? Can running a marathon look like a heart attack? Why is virtually everyone admitted to the hospital now via the emergency department? Join us as we ponder these questions and more in our third cardiology episode!
Ribbons and rhythms
How, exactly, do you say 'Torsades de Pointes' and why should you treat it empirically? Can you detect a-fib with just a wristwatch and your finger? What is the origin story of Alex's egg-related superhero powers? Join us for episode 20 as we tackle all these questions and more!
Shapeshifters and suspension
Can a climbing harness lead to a systolic blood pressure of 500+? What does nitroglycerin actually do? Does the FDA approve medicines for use in patients of a certain race? Join us this week to answer these questions and more, in the first episode of Season 2 and the first episode of our cardiology series!
Veterinary tranquilizers and sea voyages
What happens when you get splashed in the eyes with a veterinary tranquilizer intended for African elephants? This week on Recall Bias we're talking about opioids: nomenclature, potency, mechanisms, rare but high yield adverse effects, as well as reversal agents. We also explore the world's most common toxin-related seafood poisoning and the "Lake Wobegon effect" for EBM.
Special K and action potentials
Cocaine and wide complex tachycardia, CPR on television, which medications end up in breast milk, and practical tips for using ketamine in procedural sedation.
CT scans and owl eyes
A deep dive into CT scanning, overdiagnosis, 'allow natural death' instead of do not resuscitate, and some messages from the illustrious law firm of Reed & Sternberg.
Queue slow clap
I’m just glad I got into medschool before I had to compete with these juggernauts. Listen to learn at least as much as you will get from most lectures.
