Brought to you by a partnership that transcends the 49th parallel. Join Adam Thomas and Josh Farkas in the podcast that accompanies The Internet Book of Critical Care.
The IBCC podcast will explore key points in each chapter. Initially the release of podcasts may lag a bit behind the chapters for logistic reasons. However, our goal is to eventually have a podcast for each chapter. Subsequently, the podcast will discuss updates to the IBCC based on new evidence.
Neuroprognostication After Cardiac Death
In this beast of a 53 minute podcast, we tackle the approach to prognosticating neurologic function of our patients after cardiac arrest. This is hard! As Dick Cheney taught us, there are lots of known and unknown-unknowns. Read through the chapter, then come listen to all things: nuances around confounders, using structural and functional tests. How imaging can lead us astray. Is there a troponin of the brain? Josh even admits to what he'd take to the proverbial desert island.
IBCC Episode 123 - Respiratory Alkalosis
In this episode, we follow up with last week's podcast and explain the drivers of hypocapnia and subsequent respiratoy alkalosis. Come listen to a primer for all things ASA, sepsis, encephalopathy or strait mountain biking - induced panic.
In this lean and mean episode, we cover the outrageously broad topic of respiratory acidosis. Come listen to help structure your approach to Won't Breathe, Can't Breathe, and Breathing Won't Work. If you remeber nothing else, its that hypercapnia does not always mean BIPAP
Pneumocystis Jiroveci Pneumonia
In this episode we cover the rare but important driver of your patients respiratory failure: Pneumocystis Jiroveci Pneumonia. Come listen to why you should always delineate HIV status, how to approach patient workup and treatment via an invasive and non invasive manner, and why heatwaves is just a sick song.
In this episode, we cover that terrible T... Tamponade. Sit back, and get your learn on while we go beyond Beck's triad, discussing all things pulses paradox, ultrasound assessment, pitfalls, stabilization, and Josh will even melt your mind with low pressure tamponade.
In this episode, we cover all things "Upper(s)." Come listen to all things critical care level cocaine, meth and bath salts. Organ dysfunction, rapid control, immersive cooling and more!
I stumbled upon this podcast while looking for something I can use to supplement my education. This has been the best resource to cement certain medical conditions, s/s, diagnostics and treatments, etc. I listen on my drive to work, lunch, at the gym, on walks lol. Both Doctors are so knowledgeable, funny and easy to listen to. Thank you so much!
Exceptional medical podcast
Probably the best medical podcast there is especially if you practice hospital medicine. It’s concise, thoughtful, and honest. There’s a lot of uncertainty, and the hosts are clear about what’s known and not known. It seems eminently clinically relevant. As a huge bonus, the host’s banter back and forth seems genuine, funny, and livens the show without slowing it down. Absolutely phenomenal!
Practical clinical information
This podcast is well programmed and full of clinical information from practicing CCM clinician. Right amount of time discuss about pathophsyioloy, therapy and clinical measures and precautions. Podcast used to have a problem with volume difference between two hosts - I literally have to dial down and up volume intermittently, now mostly resolved!
