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.

Does the Timing of Source Control in Sepsis Make a Difference?

The emergency department resuscitation of patients with sepsis focuses on early recognition, timely administration of appropriate antibiotics, appropriate fluid resuscitation, early vasopressor initiation for patients with sepsis-induced hypoperfusion, and hemodynamic monitoring.  Source control is also an important component in the resuscitation of patients with sepsis.  Though current guidelines identify source control as a “best practice” the optimal timing of source control remains uncertain.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent study that evaluated the timing of source control with mortality in patients with community-acquired sepsis.
