OK. So it's time to bring home the fluid responsiveness. There's no way we could punish you with more than 30 minutes of this, so we broke it up (...and named the episodes Part I and Part II). In this episode we give some more examples and talk about some algorithms you can actually use in your practice. Hopefully after this you'll be able to actually do this yourself.
So you want to know if you're patient's going to be fluid responsive but you don't have the fancy machine that Drs. Weingart and Marik recently talked about on EmCrit. So what should you do? You could stand at the bedside and wait for your hospital to purchase said device, but that may not be the best for you patient. Instead, pull out 'ol reliable, your ultrasound machine. We're gonna teach you how to predict fluid responsiveness with just your hands and the probe (and we're not talking about just measuring the IVC....we know you know that). As a bonus, you're going to learn how to measure Cardiac Output with just the ultrasound machine, and we'll give you a demo...then you can learn EVEN MORE with Fluid Responsiveness Part II
February is Fluid Responsiveness Month on The Ultrasound Podcast and we've got a little preview for you here. This is actually snippets from a conversation we had with Scott Weingart several months ago talking about several things including fluid responsiveness, cardiac output, testicles, PE, and more. Enjoy!! Additional resources: Fluid Responsiveness Podcast Part 1 is now online
Here it is. The one and only Rob Orman on the podcast talking about Peritonsillar abscess. If you've never heard of him get your head out of wherever it is and go listen to some more of him on ERCAST. Warning: You may see people doing things with probes that will make you lose all respect for them as human beings.
Some of you may have heard an EMRAP recently (not really recently - maybe 6 months ago) with Rob Orman talking to an ENT doc, Dr. Shiley, about peritonsillar abscess. However, there was NO mention in the podcast of ultrasound, which is a huge part of our workup and treatment. So Mike and I have great respect for Dr. Orman. So much respect that we thought we would lambast him publicly for this OUTRAGE! Actually, he doesn't have the right probe in his ED to do what we normally do for PTAs, and that's why he doesn't do it, but he's a good enough sport that he agreed to let us "make an example" of him and teach you this skill. So here's a quick preview of the upcoming podcast. ...we'll have the full version ready to go in a few days.
So... if you're not listening to Scott Weingart and the EMcrit podcast then....well....I don't know what to say to you. Stop doing what you're doing, download every episode, memorize them all, and then come back here. Please don't waste your time listening to us if you haven't soaked in the brilliance of the EM/Critical care god that is Scott Weingart. After you've done that, then I'm pretty sure you'll be jonesing for some more Scottness, and we've got your fix. Here he is giving his opinion about our recent cric podcast. And like always it's a pretty opinionated opinion. So take a listen and learn......isn't his voice sexy? (Edit: If you have had any issues with this episode playing, it should be resolved now.) Our Full Cric podcast can be found here Our Quick Cric shortcast can be found here
So you've seen our one minute Quick Cric Lifesaver here, now it's time for the whole kit and caboodle. This podcast covers the basics and we even have a special guest co-host. This kicks off Airway Month here at the Ultrasound Podcast and we're hitting the ground running.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Thank You from The Ultrasound Podcast.
Following on from the immense response from Testicast I - we delve deeper...into testicular ultrasound
It's Testicle Month on The Ultrasound Podcast!
Ok folks, here it is. By now, we're sure you've already heard about CastleFest 2012. We've got an update for you. Here's the all new CastleFest Video with the AMAZING faculty list. This is something you don't want to miss. Check it out...
OK, here it is. If you want to see EXACTLY how diastology works to measure diastolic function, here's a quick video tutorial.
It's Time! Let's finish off the crash course in Diastology (following on from part 1 and immediately before part 3...) and show you how to actually use it to help your patients. You heard me right, it's not only fun and cool.........but useful!
Ready for yet another way to save lives using ultrasound? Then behold...
It's time! Click here and get your PhD in Diastology! When was the last time you diagnosed a patient with diastolic heart failure? Really, cause probably about 50% of all heart failure patients are isolated diastolic dysfunction. If you want to learn more and be able to throw around words like tissue doppler, restrictive filling pattern, and atrial kick then listen to this. It’s not going to be simple…..but it’s going to be EPIC! Remember...this is just part 1 of 2, so don't forget to get your learn on next time with the release of Diastology part 2.
