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 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 podcast, I continue our in depth review of pulmonology with a discussion of CO2 mechanics and obstructive lung disease.
In this short but HY podcast, I discuss some nice rules for remembering the modes of inheritance classically tested on the USMLE exams.
In this super HY podcast, I delve deep into the physiology of hypoxemia and pay special attention to helping you understand the A-a gradient. I end with a life lesson on the importance of critical thinking.
In this podcast, I continue our pulmonary pathophysiology series with a discussion of some ideas relating to ventilation and perfusion. Make sure you understand these as they are very frequently tested on the USMLE exams.
In this podcast, I continue our series on pulmonary pathophysiology with a discussion on pulmonary vascular resistance and its physiologic/pathophysiologic integrations.
This podcast focuses on helping you understand some very challenging pulmonary concepts that many give up on. I utilize an extensive set of analogies to help you understand A-a gradients (more on this in the next podcast), diffusion/perfusion limitations, and other testy concepts.
