Divine Intervention Episode 430: The Clutch Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone System Podcast (For Step 1-3)

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.

Divine Intervention Episode 429: ICU Series Part 2-Crystalloid Solutions

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.

Divine Intervention Episode 371 – The Spinal Cord (for Step 1-3)

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.
