Divine Intervention Episode 326 – Pediatric Cardiology and Hemodynamic Changes for the USMLE exams.

The NBME is quite good at writing questions where they test your knowledge of pressures/volumes/hemodynamic changes associated with pediatric heart defects. Many MS3s/4s routinely get these questions wrong on exams. If you fall into this bucket, this podcast will effectively fix this problem. The concepts emphasized here are very heavily on the USMLE exams (Step 1-3) and peds shelf exams.

Divine Intervention Episode 321 – The Clutch Metabolic Acidosis Podcast (for all USMLEs).

Metabolic acidosis is a floridly HY topic to know and understand for all the USMLE exams. Unfortunately, many people struggle with it and resort solely to memorizing lists of differentials which is not ideal. Do you want to conceptually understand metabolic acidosis (both high and normal anion gap) and see it’s integrations with multiple disciplines? If yes, this podcast accomplishes just that. The final fact I wanted to mention but forgot is that anion gap increases with age. There are no attached slides.
