Show Notes

The COACT trial demonstrated no improvement in 90-day mortality for post-arrest patients without evidence of an ST-segment elevation MI who were randomized to immediate or delayed coronary angiography.  However, the COACT Trial included only OHCA with a shockable rhythm and overall had a very low number of patients that had an acute thrombus at the time of angiography.  In this podcast, we discuss the recently published TOMAHAWK study that evaluated OHCA patients due to either a shockable or nonshockable rhythm and had no evidence of a STEMI.  Should this study change our post-arrest management of OHCA patients with a non-diagnostic ECG?

Acute Liver Failure

Patients with acute liver failure can be incredibly sick and have an exceedingly high mortality.  Early identification and prompt, evidence-based management of the patient with acute liver failure may improve patient-centered outcomes.  In this podcast, we discuss updated guidelines for the management of adult patients with acute liver failure. Key resuscitation topics include fluid resuscitation, blood pressure targets, vasopressor selection, bleeding and thrombosis risk, and mechanical ventilation.   Download Companion HandoutDownload You can get CME credit for this episode here!Click here for CME Account Creation Instructions ...

What is the Optimal SpO2 Target in Vented Patients?

Approximately 3 million critically ill patients are intubated and initiated on mechanical ventilation each year in the United States. A critical component of mechanical ventilation is the adjustment of FiO2 to maintain adequate arterial oxygen saturation.  However, the optimal oxygenation target in critically ill adult patients receiving mechanical ventilation remains uncertain. In this podcast we discuss a recently published study, the PILOT Trial, that evaluated low, intermediate, and high oxygenation targets in critically ill patients.
