Podcast #36 - Primer on Clinically Important Hypertension in the Emergency Department
This week's podcast is all about hypertension. Like a previous podcast, #13 on abscess management, this podcast is in response to a recent Skeptic's Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM) post that TOTAL EM was featured on. We want to add to that discussion by expanding on clinically important hypertension in the emergency department. This primer will most likely only be the start to future discussions on deeper reviews about hypertension that we need to be concerned about in emergencies.
We are back for our first ever trio podcast! We have two previous PA guests, Patrick Bafuma and Frank Norman, to discuss a new paper regarding dyspnea and POCUS. At this time, the paper has not received much publicity but we agreed it was important to cover. Like our last podcast, this one is a bit longer but it is well worth your time so please look over the blog and listen to the podcast. A quick apology though as to the audio quality, especially in the second half. Due to a technical issue, it could not be refined to the same extent but it is still worth the listen.
Kris Maday is back for another podcast which is also available at the PAINE Podcast this time to discuss complications of chemotherapy. We review some of the most common conditions that also possess a risk to be life threatening for those fighting cancer. Since chemotherapy is designed to kill rogue cancer cells (some by sniper, some by nuke), there is bound to be collateral damage. The detailed show notes provided are in large part from Kris Maday's review of the literature.
Reading the title you may be concerned that this interview is broken up into multiple parts but fear not for this is a new series we are starting! Greg Schmor, a critical care paramedic in Canada is our first guest in a series of podcasts that we plan to have on Rural Mass Casualty Incidents (MCIs). In any system, MCIs are a challenge but there are unique difficulties that are seen in the rural/remote environment or at least are exacerbated by such an environment. This series can be of benefit for anyone who may become involved in MCIs but we focus especially on those in the rural and remote settings.
