E218: WHAT IF by Dave Olvera - from FAST22 Las Vegas

10/20/2022
As healthcare providers, much of what we struggle with is not what we take with us to the scene (our equipment, medications, and techniques) it's what we take back home with us after we have helped others in the most terrible situations of their lives. We are empathetic creatures, and we share in other people's pain. In addition, we may find ourselves struggling with our own terrible situations at work or outside of work. In either case, those traumatic events take a little piece of us with...

E210: Deep Dive into Pediatric DKA

4/21/2022
Pediatric patients are just tiny adults, right? Isn't that what we have always been taught? It is what was taught, but we flatly reject the concept. Why? Because we have seen the reports and results of that flawed logic and the tragic results that follow. For example, if you treat a pediatric patient with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) the same way as you would an adult patient with DKA then you can bet your favorite pair of flight boots that their outcome will suffer. That's what this podcast...
