Divine Intervention Episode 425: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 13
In this podcast, I continue our in depth review of pulmonology with a discussion of CO2 mechanics and obstructive lung disease.
Divine Intervention Episode 422: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 12
In this podcast, I continue our pulm review with a detailed discussion of ventilation and perfusion related ideas.
Divine Intervention Episode 421: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 11
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 419: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 10
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 418: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 9
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 417: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 8
In this podcast, I continue our series on pulmonary pathophysiology with a discussion on pulmonary vascular resistance and its physiologic/pathophysiologic integrations.
Divine Intervention Episode 411: The Clutch Sarcoidosis Podcast
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 410: Pulmonary Pathophysiology Series 7
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.
Divine Intervention Episode 409 – The Clutch Hemoglobin Podcast (for Step 1-3)
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.
