Show Notes

Up to one-third of patients with status epilepticus will not respond to benzodiazepines.  Unfortunately, treatment of benzodiazepine-refractory status epilepticus is not well studied.  The longer seizures persist, the worse patients do.  In this podcast, we discuss the results of the recently completed ESETT trial that evaluated three anticonvulsant medications for status epilepticus.

ECMO for Cardiac Arrest and Massive PE

Despite continued advances in resuscitation, favorable outcomes for patients with OHCA who receive standard resuscitation remain dismal.  In recent years there has been significant interest in the use of ECMO for OHCA.  However, the evidence demonstrating the efficacy of ECMO in OHCA remains limited.  In this podcast we review the recent ARREST Trial, which evaluated ECMO-facilitated resuscitation in OHCA.  In addition, we also discuss a recent systematic review on VA-ECMO for massive PE.
