Do you struggle with understanding normal and high anion gap metabolic acidosis? This series is exactly what you need. In this first part, I lay the requisite foundation. In the next part, I will focus on examples. This is certainly a super HY topic for all the USMLEs!
In this podcast, I continue our in depth review of pulmonology with a discussion of CO2 mechanics and obstructive lung disease.
In this podcast, I continue our pulm review with a detailed discussion of ventilation and perfusion related ideas.
In this podcast, we continue our discussion on pulmonology. As a pro-tip, the stuff covered here is floridly HY for all the USMLE exams (and the peds shelf). Make sure you understand the physiology discussed in this podcast.
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.
Sarcoidosis is a common multi system pathology tested on all the USMLE/COMLEX exams. In this short podcast, I elaborate on what you need to know, describe pathophysiology, and make integrations with different body systems.
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.
Hemoglobin is associated with a subset of questions on all USMLE exams. If you want to truly understand Hb and make integrations with multiple disciplines, this is exactly what you need.
