Have you always wanted to go on an ambulance ride along?
Here is the chance to get a sneak peak at what happens to our patients who are brought in by ambulance. Listen in as Mike Linares from Simple Nursing thoughtfully (and humorously!) recounts stories from his time as an EMT.
Dr. Eric Strong, internal medicine physician, faculty professor and YouTuber Strong Medicine, reviews the three categories of cardiomyopathy including their etiology, physiology, treatment, and what nurses need to look out for in patients with the disease. Dr. Strong will also explain why the term “cardiomyopathy” is surprisingly misleading and misunderstood by nurses and clinicians alike.
Listen in as I share a case of vasovagal syncope with rapid response guru, Sarah Lorenzini from the Rapid Response RN Podcast, in which my patient had a syncopal episode while on telemetry. We discuss what the telemetry strip looked like, why atropine might not have been the best intervention for this patient and some of the treatment options for bradycardia.
In this episode, I will share with you what I have considered to be my biggest ah-ha moments from the last 2.5 years of hosting this podcast — those that have influenced my practice on just about a daily basis.
Kidney transplant is, by far, the most common type of transplant procedure performed and therefore the most commonly seen in clinical practice.
