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.
In this episode, I review a topic that is floridly HY to know for all the USMLE exams (Step 1, 2CK, and 3). This topic has a unique way of presenting itself in physiological/pathological scenarios on these exams. I discuss the vast majority of these scenarios in this podcast. Pay close attention here. There are no attached slides.
In this podcast, I review a floridly HY topic that is classically tested by our friends at the NBME: the cardiac valvular disorders. I focus very specifically on HY bits of information they love to test and leave out fluff. In addition, I spend quite a bit of time focusing on pathophysiology so you don’t have to waste time memorizing long lists of stuff. There are no attached slides.
In addition, the next 20ish person 10 hr 2CK class takes place on the 11th of July via zoom. Reach out to me at email@example.com to reserve a spot.
Shock is an ultra HY topic for all the USMLE exams. This podcast gives you everything you need to know to answer those questions. There are no attached slides.
In this HY podcast, I review all you need to know about the vasculitides as tested on the USMLE exams. You’ll definitely see some of these on the test you write (Step 1, 2CK, 3). I go into tons of pathophysiology so you’re not just blindly memorizing associations. I however discuss the classic presentations (NBME vocab) you’re likely to see. There are no attached slides.
In this episode I continue our comprehensive cardiology review series for the USMLE Step 1 exam with a discussion of HY cardiac pathologies. I would strongly recommend listening to the early part of Episode 5 on this website as I discuss the pathophysiology behind some of the physical exam maneuvers and how they affect murmur intensity. Note that Part 1 is Episode 116 and Part 2 is Episode 154. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our discussion of cardiology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 exam (continuation from Episode 116 and Episode 5). My ultimate goal is to cover everything in the FA for Step 1 book. I explain mechanisms and discuss classic presentations. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our in depth review of cardiology primarily with recourse to ABIM tested concepts. For those preparing for the Medicine ITE/Step 3, many of these concepts are also tested very frequently. This podcast spends time on many this vs that scenarios that tend to cause problems for people on these exams (wrt to cardio). There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I focus on 3 things; ACLS and detailed management of the different ACLS rhythms, HY arrhythmias and their acute management (VTach, Afib, Aflutter, WPW, SVT, etc etc), and the HY cardiac agents that are tested on exams. The material in this podcast is applicable to all the USMLE exams and the ABIM/Medicine ITE exam. A few questions usually pop up related to these concepts all the time. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our review of concepts classically tested on the ABIM and the Medicine ITE. These topics also tend to show up on the USMLE Step 3 exam. The primary focus of this podcast is on cardiology (which makes up about 15% of the ABIM exam)! This will ultimately form part of an expanded series focusing on cardiology. There are no attached slides.
