Clinical Stories – Bleeding to Death

New type of podcast where I describe a clinical situation I have been in and what has gone through my mind as I’ve dealt with it. This is the case of a post-op patient with life-threatening hemorrhage. Hope you find it interesting. Some flute work on a Pat Metheny tune. Happy Holidays. JY

ICU Presentations Redux

I ask all my residents and students to listen to this presentation before they start my ICU rotation. I think its not only useful for MDs, but for medics as well. while it wont help those who are told to present in a very proscribed manner, I think it will help you organize your own thoughts and priorities when caring for critically ill patients.

Discussion of the recent ideas toward decreasing backboarding, and some discussion of how to initiate and maintain change in EMS and medicine. Thanks for listening. JY

Podcast from a few years ago you cant get on iTunes anymore that I think is worth listening to. Hope you find it useful. Thanks for listening. JY

Discussion of using simulation to prepare your people for those situations which are not what they initially appear to be. Massive hemorrhage, sepsis, and respiratory arrest in the seemingly innocuous situation are discussed. Thanks for listening.
