We had an excellent opportunity that we had to turn into a video podcast. The roundtable discussion is with Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City staff: a physician (Dr. McCarty), a PA (Matt), and a RN (Christina). They cover their ED's response and how each of them took on new roles to better manage patients in this challenging time. Their tips and tricks are worth listening to, especially if you have not yet seen a surge of patients.
Adrian Banning is back as our guest host this week. Once again, she did a stellar job and performed a very interesting interview with David Allen. As demonstrated on his Instagram account, he has become internationally renowned for his work as a tattoo artist. He focuses most of his work on mastectomy scar coverage. He has been published on JAMA and has been a speaker for medical conferences. The unique skills and experiences have contributed to the discussion of this podcast.
Adrian Banning is acting as the host this week (and did a fantastic job!). She interviewed Katherine (Katie) Thompson from IPV Educators regarding domestic violence surrounding the changes with COVID-19 and how we can still help these patients.
If you have been to a healthcare facility recently or work in a hospital, chances are you have been screened as soon as you got to that location. Sometimes, you are even screened prior to arrival. The same strategies are being proposed to help us return to our "normal" lives. While this may seem like a beneficial strategy, there is a significant problem with these screening protocols.
We are in a point of time where information is incredibly easy to access. We also have the convenience to be able to rapidly share information. We are also in a crisis from a pandemic. We as a whole are in a dangerous situation where misinformation, rumors, and bias can play a major part in hurting ourselves, our loved ones, and the world as a whole.
We are back to talk more about POCUS with COVID-19. This post covers the clinical course when using lung ultrasound, Q&A from someone who experienced it first hand, and how to disinfect your pocket ultrasound device. We are joined in this discussion by Dr. Yale Tung Chen.
We are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are still many unanswered questions. As mentioned in our previous post, we will not discuss in detail specific treatments yet as new data is constantly coming out and it is all very limited. However, one question that comes up frequently is the use of ibuprofen and if it is safe with COVID-19.
As we continue our discussion regarding COVID-19, we wanted to cover the point of care ultrasound (POCUS) findings that you should know. Much discussion surrounds this topic including some debates about if and how it should be used. We tackle when, why, and how to use POCUS for COVID-19 as well as what to look for in this video podcast ("vodcast"). In this vodcast we are joined by SPOCUS President, Fritz Fuller
Infectious disease can become intertwined with illicit drug use for a variety of reasons. HIV, hepatitis, and endocarditis are some of the common examples where drug use can lead someone to need help from an infectious disease specialist. However, Patrick Bafuma interviewed Dr. Michael Silverman regarding some interesting research he did regarding how certain drugs were increasing the risk of serious infections.
With our last podcast discussing some of the key facts of COVID-19, it is worth discussing another important component: resource utilization. One of the scarier projections with a large outbreak is how resources can be used to their maximum capacity very quickly. We break down how COVID-19 is one example that can have disastrous consequences.
