Dissecting "TIME CONSTANT" - Optimizing Alveolar Filling and Emptying

The worksheet gives calculation examples, practice questions,...

In this episode, we explore the old thought process in ARDS, with a focus on diagnosis, physiology,...

The Silent Killer in RSI

In this episode of The FlightBridgeED Podcast, Eric takes a few minutes to delve into an intriguing aspect of the paralytics we carry out on every flight. As the old quote goes, everything is a poison in the right amount, it is perhaps worth applying this, in a manner of speaking, to the pharmacokinetics of the paralytics we give our patients. Are some of these medications actually doing more harm than we realize? What are the potential problems with the tried-and-true medications we are...

IABP Pearls: Mechanical vs Chemical Balloon

Intra-aortic Balloon Pump Counterpulsation therapy is a miracle of modern science that has roots going to the 1960’s. We have come a long way since those days and now, although not a high volume request, flight crews are regularly transporting patients with these lifesaving devices in place. Because this service is not a high volume request, it’s very important to ensure you understand how an IABP works, what the numbers mean, and how you can help and hinder the mechanical function through...

Blankets are for Naps, Not Medicine: Is a 6 mL/kg Tidal Volume for Everyone?

Medicine is an ever-evolving practice of learning from mistakes, conquering diseases, and seeing to the needs of a unique individual who is desperate for a cure.
