Have a great week. No episode. We’re working on updating the show notes.

Duration: 00:03:47


Delivering Babies

12/10/2017
More
Performing an emergency delivery is very intimidating. The good news is that in most scenarios, as long as you don’t drop the baby, it should go very naturally. However, there are exceptions to this which we will cover today.

Duration: 00:07:04


The EKG

12/3/2017
More
EM physicians are the masters of EKG interpretation. We will cover an organized EKG interpretation system today with an emphasis on identifying life threats, and this will act as the foundation for your EKG interpretation skills for the rest of your career.

Duration: 00:10:55


Pediatric Exam

11/26/2017
More
Sick. Not sick. This week we will discuss the fundamental pediatric exam that you need to remember regardless of how the patient looks.

Duration: 00:08:34


Pediatrics 101

11/19/2017
More
Really sick kids and babies are some of the scariest and most difficult cases we get in Emergency Medicine. This week we’re going to start with the general approach to the less-sick pediatric patient. We will use this as the groundwork for future episodes.

Duration: 00:10:05


Travel Emergencies

11/12/2017
More
One of the topics that we typically DONT study much in Emergency Medicine is tropical medicine, and specifically fever in returning travelers. The reason this is important, is because MALARIA is a huge life threat in this patient population that can be easily missed. It is very important to ask about recent travel and then […]

Diarrhea

11/5/2017
More
Diarrhea is almost always a benign complaint, especially in well appearing patients, with stable vitals, and a lack of red flags. This week we will cover those red flags as well as some basic treatments when a patient is complaining of bad diarrhea.

Duration: 00:08:35


CT Scans

10/29/2017
More
I’ve been getting lots of emails regarding which CT scan is the right scan to order in different situations. Contrast? No contrast? ORAL contrast? There are so many options! I recommend you know the core, high yield CT scans, and over time you’ll pick up the rest.

Appendicitis (Critical Diagnosis)

10/22/2017
More
Everybody knows what appendicitis is (fever, migrating right lower quadrant pain, elevated WBC, pain with bumps in the road). Unfortunately, the issue is that appendicitis only sometimes presents in this classic fashion. Using history, exam, and imaging, it is always important to keep a high index of suspicion for appendicitis so that you don’t miss […]

Eye Complaints

10/15/2017
More
Before you can learn the different eye diagnoses and how to treat them, you need to have a basic understanding of the ophthalmologic exam. Only after having this foundation can you finalize your approach to the red eye, acute vision loss, or eye trauma (which will be covered in future episodes). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9wMJ6job_0&t=62s

Duration: 00:08:37


Bradycardia

10/8/2017
More
The approach to bradycardia is very simple and straightforward. The most important thing is to remember you differential diagnosis. After that, it’s a simple algorithm that you’ll never forget.

Duration: 00:11:17


Anaphylaxis (Critical Diagnosis)

10/1/2017
More
Anaphylaxis is total body chaos resulting from massive, inappropriate degranulation of mast cells when exposed to an antigen. When this happens, you have to remember airway and epi. It will save a life.

Duration: 00:10:49


Fluids (Guest)

9/27/2017
More
IV fluids are something we deal with everyday in the emergency department. This podcast will teach you what you need to know about giving fluids.

Duration: 00:08:52


Show Notes Update and Apps

9/24/2017
More
There are 6 core apps that I’m currently using while running around the emergency department during my shifts, and we’ll cover the list in this episode. Also, we will soon be launching The EM Clerkship Pocket Guide which will replace the current, outdated, episode summaries. No specific date yet, but I already have the user […]

Duration: 00:10:26


Surviving Overnights

9/17/2017
More
One of the most difficult aspects of Emergency Medicine is shift work. Specifically, surviving overnights and the constant circadian chaos our body goes through by constantly rotating through morning, evening, and and overnight shifts. It happens to all of us, and in this episode I’m going to give you some personal strategies I’ve developed while […]

Duration: 00:10:50


Tachycardia

9/10/2017
More
EM doctors specifically look for two things every time they see an EKG. Ischemic changes (STEMI, ST depressions, inverted T waves), and dysrhythmias (bradycardia and tachycardias). In this episode, we cover the 5 categories of tachycardias and a basic approach to each one.

Duration: 00:11:14


Status Epilepticus (Critical Diagnosis)

9/3/2017
More
On occasion, seizures won’t stop, or a seizure lasts longer then 5 minutes. Unlike a simple, single, resolved seizure, status epilepticus is an emergency. In these scenarios, we add to the descriptive and diagnostic workup discussed last week, and move on to a focused treatment algorithm to stop the seizure as soon as possible.

Duration: 00:09:57


Seizure

8/27/2017
More
One of the most common neurologic complaints we encounter in the Emergency Department is seizure. Typically, a patient with epilepsy will have a breakthrough seizure, or somebody will try some drugs and get a seizure, or the seizure will be the first symptom of a dangerous medical condition. Regardless, 911 will almost always get called […]

Duration: 00:09:53


Cardiac Arrest (ACLS)

8/20/2017
More
You will probably witness a few cardiac arrest cases during your clerkship. Sometimes these happen in the hospital, but usually these patient’s will be brought into the ED, CPR in progress, by EMS. Just like in trauma, we follow a very basic, logical algorithm when we resuscitate these patients, and this algorithm is called ACLS.

Duration: 00:09:41


RUQ Pain

8/13/2017
More
It is really important to use the correct terminology when presenting a patient with right upper quadrant abdominal pain to your attending. If you want a good score on your SLOE, your differential diagnosis has to contain more than just “cholecystitis”. We will cover a basic approach today with a focus on the terminology to […]
