In this HY podcast, I discuss salient means for differentiating poisonings from carbon monoxide, cyanide, and methemoglobin. I spend time discussing physiology that should help you navigate these questions with ease on exams. I conclude with a life lesson relevant to most medical students/trainees.
This podcast is essentially a continuation of Episode 371. In this episode, I review the HY spinal cord lesions that are classically tested on all the USMLE exams.
Headaches are very routinely tested on the USMLE exams. This short podcast addresses pretty much everything you need to know about them. For those taking Step 2CK/3 or COMLEX Level 2/3 within the next 3-4 weeks, email me via the website if you’re interested in the course taking place next week.
In this short but floridly HY podcast, I introduce the spinal cord and make some integrations along the way. Neurology is not a memorization science. It’s a rule-based science. This podcast addresses many of these rules so understanding a future podcast I will make (on spinal cord lesions) will be a lot easier. Neurology comes up on the USMLE exams and most of the questions are easy if you just added a little time and attention to studying it.
In this episode, I continue our in-depth series on the eye that was started in Ep 361.
The eye is a nebulous topic for many people to understand. My goal with this podcast is to help you thoroughly understand and answer NBME questions related to this complex organ.
Secondary hypertension is tested on essentially every USMLE exam in some way, shape, or form. The NBMEs love to integrate the topic with many other disciplines. If you struggle with this specific topic, this podcast is exactly what you need. I present numerous vignettes, integrations, and physiology/pathology tie-ins to help you make sense and simplicity of a nebulous topic.
Believe it or not, fungi are heavily tested on Step 2CK and 3. This short podcast will gift you many easy points on your test. I discuss essentially all the fungi you need to know for your exams and then proceed to make the necessary integrations with other disciplines (like genetics).
In this ultra HY podcast, I review the vast majority of the psych pharm you need to know for the psychiatry shelf, Step 2CK, and Step 3. I make tons of integrations and bring in lots of HY tidbits that should help you snag many points on these tests.
In this short but extremely HY podcast, I discuss essentially all you need to know about SLE for the USMLE Step 1-3 exams.
