EMCrit Podcast 48 – PhD in EKGs Part II: Left Bundle Branch Block
(NaN)
A few months ago, we had Dr. Stephen Smith on the podcast to discuss a variety of EKG issues. Dr. Smith has an EKG blog that is required reading for every ED and ICU doc. This is Part II and I think it discusses an incredibly important issue: right now major medical societies including the AHA and ACEP are asking us to fibrinolyse or PCI patients with new or presumed new LBBB. However, your interventionalists will tell you that this strategy is a ridiculous waste given how few acute occlusions will actually...

EMCrit Podcast 47 – Failure to Plan for Failure: A Discussion of Airway Disasters and the NAP4 Study
(NaN)
Cliff Reid of Resus.Me fame put out an incredible post on NAP4, the audit done on all of the airway complications in Great Britain. It was such a phenomenal post that I got in touch with Cliff and asked if he wanted to come on the podcast to speak about it. He did me one better and got an interview with one of the authors of the Emergency and Critical Care Section....

EMCrit Podcast 43 – Laryngeal Airways with Daniel Cook, MD (Part I)
(NaN)
My favorite supraglottic airway is the Cookgas Air-Q; it was created by an anesthesiologist, Dr. Daniel Cook. He just created a new device that allows the placement of an esophageal blocker through the laryngeal airway. I gave him a call to hear about the new product and in the course of that conversation, he gave me a ton of tips on the placement of laryngeal airways. Part II will specifically discuss the new device....

EMCrit Podcast 37 – Lactate in Sepsis
(NaN)
When an ED starts providing advanced care for severe sepsis, lactate testing is an absolute requirement. Lactate use brings up a lot of questions, especially if it is not commonly ordered in your department. In this podcast, I discuss all of the lactate questions that have come up in the course of the NYC Sepsis Collaborative....

EMCrit Podcast 35 – Extubation in the ED
(NaN)
In this podcast, I discuss extubating patients in the ED. Specifically, I deal with patients who have only been intubated for a few hours in distinction to extubation of the patient who has been lingering in your ED for 2-3 days. The best patients for this short-term extubation are those intox folks with a low GCS and signs of trauma, overdoses, or endoscopy cases....

EMCrit Podcast 34 – 2010 ACLS Guidelines
(NaN)
The brand new ACLS & BCLS guidelines were published last week. Not huge changes, but some good stuff! The free full text is available at the Circulation website. It takes hours to make your way through all of it. I boiled it down to just the facts and posted a summary on the EMCrit site. In this EMCrit Podcast I discuss some of the highlights that I think are particularly important....

EMCrit Podcast 33 – Diagnosis of Posterior Stroke
(NaN)
What if I told you that I think that patient you just sent home with vertigo may have been a missed cerebellar stroke? Would you be dialing risk management or could you tell me all of the reasons why I'm wrong? Isolated vertigo without other neurological findings can't be a stroke, right? That is true, if you are doing the right exam, but if you are just doing your standard ED neuro screening exam then you might be missing serious pathology. In this episode of the EMCrit podcast, I discuss how to perform th...

EMCrit Podcast 31 – Intra-Arrest Management
(NaN)
This week we talk about managing the intra-arrest period of cardiac arrest. My paradigm has changed dramatically over the past few years. In the past, I viewed the arrest as a period to teach my residents how to place a subclavian central line, how to intubate when the patient is moving, and how to cram as many drugs as possible into a patient in a short period of time. Looking at how I manage an arrest today, so much has changed....
