Elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) was just discussed in our last podcast on head injuries. However, we briefly mentioned how there is a certain amount of controversy on this subject. This separate podcast is to act as a supplement to the Chapter 6 ATLS podcast on head trauma that was just covered. We find this particularly important given how long our ATLS podcasts run in general.
The newest Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) blog and podcast is here! This time we talk about head trauma. Get the key pearls and pitfalls as provided by Chip Lange and Mike Sharma.
We received quite a bit of feedback with the last podcast and requests to discuss specifically the variants and their potential impacts on the current COVID-19 vaccines. It is worth noting that at the time of this publication there is still limited data but we discuss the key concepts and takeaways with the current knowledge we have on the topic.
There have already been many podcasts discussing COVID-19 vaccines, so what makes this one different and worth listening to now? This podcast is more about some of the key highlights and frequent questions asked to help listeners get the right resources and information.
We are back at it again with our newest ATLS podcast. This time we are focusing on the abdomen and pelvis which can be host to a wide range of severe pathology. Given its many intricacies, we focused most on the highlights from ATLS Chapter 5 including the key "red text" that it emphasizes.
Recently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released updated guidelines for treating gonococcal infections. Given the increase in antibiotic resistance, this provides an important change in the recommended management for not only gonorrhea but also chlamydia.
2020 was a very different year and now it is time to start into 2021. As always this time of year we want to provide everyone with an update and our plans. This is especially true given how the last couple of months have been particularly challenging with COVID-19.
It has been a while (a month) since we last posted. We apologize, but wanted to explain why and remind you that we are still here and ready to help. Take a listen to the podcast to understand more.
We are finally back with another ATLS podcast. Mike Sharma and Chip Lange together discuss the complex but important subject of thoracic trauma. They break it down this time by addressing key aspects that come up during the primary and secondary assessments. This topic also broaches how to manage the traumatic circulatory arrest patient without a pulse.
We have mentioned in previous podcasts that if you have questions or special requests to send them our way. Another one of our listeners did just this after listening to part of our ATLS series. This has been a very popular series and we are so glad you enjoy it so much. The discussions that have been built off of this as a result has led to even more great podcasts.
