In this podcast, I continue our rapid review series for the USMLE Step 2/3 exams with a discussion of some HY endocrine, psychiatric, and neurological concepts that often show up on these tests.
Infectious complications of IVDU are very heavily tested on all the USMLE exams. In this episode, I thoroughly discuss a host of these complications and try to show you ways they love to test these ideas on the USMLEs.
This is probably one of the highest yield podcasts I have ever made for the USMLE exams. Strongly consider listening to this ahead of your test. The USMLEs, on every single exam, love to throw in eye findings in the context of other things to test your ability to identify certain pathologies. This podcast, in comprehensive fashion, details many of these pathologies.
In this short but ultra HY podcast, I discuss the neuromuscular junction disorders that you need to know for your exams. The NBMEs have in recent times become astute at testing this material in unique ways. This podcast should really help you nail these disorders on your exams. I compare and contrast things, discuss classic/unusual presentations, and explain relevant pathophysiology.
In this super HY podcast, I discuss a host of commonly tested adverse drug reactions around the blood elements (RBCs, WBCs, platelets). These things show up on almost every USMLE exam. It is a continuation of Episode 387 on the website. If you’re interested in helping with the transcription of my Step 1 podcasts, reach out to Lukasz Adamczyk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a happy new year and a prosperous 2023!
In this short podcast, I make a concerted effort to discuss lots of commonly tested drugs and associated pathology, pathophysiology, and necessary integrations in a short time frame. This should easily net you some nice points on test day.
In this extremely HY podcast, I discuss the renin angiotensin aldosterone system in detail and also make lots of integrations that show up as exam questions on all the USMLEs. Definitely worth a listen before you take your test.
In this podcast, I continue the ICU series from Episode 416 with a discussion of crystalloids (normal saline, lactated ringers, and plasmalyte). I discuss physiology, pathophysiology, benefits of one vs the other, and situations where one is preferred to the other. I also discuss some perils of giving these fluids and the mechanisms behind these perils. I will be discussing colloids in another podcast.
In this short but super HY podcast, I discuss the HY X linked dominant disorders you need to know for the USMLE/COMLEX exams and also spend time discussing probabilities you need to use on exams when asked about this specific inheritance pattern.
In this podcast, I continue our in depth review of pulmonology with a discussion of CO2 mechanics and obstructive lung disease.
