Welcome back to our first Roadside to Resus episode for 2023!

We're back with the huge topic that is COPD. In this episode we're going to delve into the depths of the topic, helping us to deliver the best possible care for this frequently encountered presentation.

Along with the standard coverage from incidence, to pathophysiology, to presentation and treatment, we'll also be covering those topics that you've specifically asked for;

  • The mechanism behind hypercapnoeic respiratory failure, in those patients given to much oxygen
  • Is there a role for end tidal CO2 interpretation in those spontaneously ventilating in acute exacerbations of COPD
  • How do we tease out those for home care versus those that require hospital admission
  • What is the role of Magnesium in these patients

Once again we'd love to hear any comments or questions either via the website or social media.

Enjoy!

Welcome to 2023 and a very happy New Year!

We hope you managed to get some time with your loved ones over the festive period and we're back with the podcast again to kick off the new year.

First up, we take a look at a paper assessing whether there is benefit to treatment with thrombolytics or anticoagulants for patients in cardiac arrest due to a presumed MI.

Next up we look at the potential harm in administering steroids to patients with COVID-19 nor requiring supplemental oxygen.

Finally, we take a look at a paper assessing the potential use of point of care lactate in predicting the need for in-hospital blood product resuscitation.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
