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.
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 cover everything you can ever wish to know/understand about the HY nephrotic and nephritic syndromes that show up on Step 1, 2CK, 3, and the IM exams. I very rapidly cover the material in different layers and discuss classic findings, clinical presentation, diagnostic testing, treatment, and pathophysiology to help with really cementing the material. You’ll have to work incredibly hard to ever get any nephrotic/nephritic syndrome question wrong on pretty much any medical exam after listening to this. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I continue our review for the above named exams with a HY discussion relating to nephrology. I spend the bulk of this podcast discussing the diseases of the glomerulus. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I thoroughly examine essentially all major electrolytes tested on the USMLE exams. If electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, and other minors) are a problem, this is the podcast you need. This will make those elyte problems go away. I can of course offer no guarantees but this is one of those “net you 20-25 correct questions on USMLE Step 1/2CK/3 exam” sort of podcasts. Probably one of the highest yield on this website and very highly recommended before taking any USMLE exam. Even a resident will find this to be extremely useful. I explain all these electrolytes with a copious number of scenarios and underlying pathophysiology. There are no attached slides.
In this episode, I begin a series where I discuss nephrology as classically tested on these exams. There are no attached slides.
