Show Notes

Though low-tidal volume ventilation has been shown to decreased mortality in patients with ARDS, the use of these settings in mechanically ventilated ED patients has been variable.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent systematic review that examined the effect of low-tidal volume ventilation in the ED on clinical outcomes including mortality, length of stay, occurrence of ARDS, and duration of mechanical ventilation.

Does a Restrictive Oxygenation Target Make a Difference in the Post-Arrest Patient?

The care of patients with return of spontaneous circulation following cardiac arrest centers on optimizing oxygenation and ventilation, optimizing hemodynamics, identifying patients that require immediate coronary angiography, detecting seizures, and targeted temperature management.  In recent years, numerous articles have evaluated various components of this post-arrest bundle of care.  In the current podcast, we discuss Part II of the BOX Trial that evaluated a restrictive versus liberal oxygenation target in the post-arrest patient.

Anticoagulation Reversal for ICH

ICH accounts for approximately 15 percent of all strokes.  Despite improvements in neurocritical care, the mortality for patients with ICH can still reach 50 percent at 1-year, with many left with significant residual deficits.  Patients with an ICH who are taking an oral anticoagulant medication tend to have larger ICH volumes, more frequent IVH, and a greater frequency of hematoma expansion.  In this podcast, we review the latest recommendations on reversing anticoagulant medications in patients with an ICH.
