    Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practice Providers in Trauma Care - Barbara Eaton, Katie Lidard & Jen Miller

    Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practice Providers in Trauma Care - Barbara Eaton, Katie Lidard & Jen Miller

    Dr. DuBose talks with Mss. Eaton, Lidard and Miller about nurse practitioners, their place in trauma care, and how, together with attendings and residents, NPs and advanced practice providers in general can form cohesive and effective teams. The subject is too often neglected, and we as surgeons end up working alongside and depending upon professionals whose journey and expertise we don't really understand. Hopefully, this episode will help rectify that.

    Peripheral Vascular Trauma: Assessment & Diagnosis - Dr. Ravi Rajani

    Peripheral Vascular Trauma: Assessment & Diagnosis - Dr. Ravi Rajani

    DuBose and Dr. Ravi Rajani, Chief of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital and Associate Professor at Emory University, discuss the approach to the patient with extremity injury and how to pick up on indications of vascular injury. Talking points include why there is no such thing as a Doppler pulse, and how we tend to ignore the first word in the name "pulse oximeter." Ravi finishes up by being correctly indignant that we are expected to wash dishes before putting them into a dishwasher. It doesn't make any sense, people.

    Facial Trauma - Drs. Kerry P. Latham & Fan Liang

    In this episode, Dr. DuBose talks about facial trauma and how the trauma surgeon can be a good friend and partner to the plastic surgeon taking care of injured patients bearing bony and soft trauma. After a rousing and collegial talk, the three plan to launch a class action lawsuit against Stephen King on behalf of clown-lovers everywhere, and Dr. Liang reveals that she would be entirely lost if she had only a compass and a map.

    Esophageal Trauma - Dr. David Feliciano

    Esophageal Trauma - Dr. David Feliciano

    For a single organ, the esophagus lends a disproportionate degree of complexity to management of the injured patient. Dr. DuBose finds clarity in a discussion with Dr. Feliciano, speaking from an undisclosed second location. Feliciano finishes by revealing that Harrison Ford is one of his favorite actors, which is unsurprising given how much they resemble each other.

    Pediatric Trauma - Dr. Howard Pryor

    Pediatric Trauma - Dr. Howard Pryor

    Dr. DuBose interviews current Shock Trauma surgical critical care fellow, Navy veteran and pediatric surgeon Dr. Howard Pryor. The relatively unaccomplished Dr. Pryor discusses the basics of trauma in the child, which is both qualitatively and quantitatively different from trauma care in the adult. They conclude with a discussion about Caps Lock, which both mistakenly believe is unnecessary.

    Basics of Ocular Trauma - Dr. Bennie Jeng

    Basics of Ocular Trauma - Dr. Bennie Jeng

    The eye, as we all know, is a squishy bag filled with magic. I discuss ophthalmic injuries with ocular expert Dr. Bennie Jeng and eventually finds the tables turned when Jeng asks me if cereal is a soup. Fortunately, I am always prepared for this question.
