Prone positioning was first proposed in the 1970s as a method to improve gas exchange in ARDS. Subsequent observations of dramatic improvement in oxygenation with simple patient rotation motivated the next several decades of research. During COVID -19 pandemic, the debate on the utility of proning has been resurfaced. In this podcast, we dive deepe…
 
Join Dr. Eve Purdy from Canada to learn how to dissect the culture of your working environment through the lens of Anthropology. In this podcast, she describes simulation as a means to create moments of cultural compression and how that can be beneficial to evaluate and thus potentially modify the culture of the place.…
 
The cytokine storm, arising from a dysregulated host response, has captivated mainstream and scientific media in recent times with its possible role leading to poor outcomes in COVID-19. It is characterized by the release of mediators, including chemokines, interleukins, interferons, and tumor necrosis factors. In this podcast, we discuss the avail…
