Whats going on?!

Well, here's what happened. A bunch of cool people were teaching POCUS at a sweet conference (Dublin VTE). Then we decided to record a podcast on some hand-picked articles relating to critical care. The conversation turned out to be kind of long so it is broken down into several more-digestible parts. This is part 2 of 3.

Here are some of the articles discussed:

I dig this stuff, but c'mon...oink, oink...we need some non animal farm outcome data. great start i guess,,,but in a 30 y/o with pulm embolus and arriving dead i think i will go with the right ventricle dilated...equates enough with PE that I will (hedge) consider and implement thrombolysis in the pt

Haha. Thanks for the comment Robert. I completely agree with you. Currently, that seems to be the safest option. The pig study is interesting because it introduces the idea that maybe RV dilation in arrest isn’t at all specific. This is believable from a physiologic standpoint so maybe it’s something we should look into. Clearly, we will need some human data - and some is in the works!
