Brought to you by a partnership that transcends the 49th parallel. Join Adam Thomas and Josh Farkas in the podcast that accompanies The Internet Book of Critical Care. The IBCC podcast will explore key points in each chapter. Initially the release of podcasts may lag a bit behind the chapters for logistic reasons. However, our goal is to eventually have a podcast for each chapter. Subsequently, the podcast will discuss updates to the IBCC based on new evidence.

Neuroprognostication After Cardiac Death
In this beast of a 53 minute podcast, we tackle the approach to prognosticating neurologic function of our patients after cardiac arrest. This is hard! As Dick Cheney taught us, there are lots of known and unknown-unknowns. Read through the chapter, then come listen to all things: nuances around confounders, using structural and functional tests. How imaging can lead us astray. Is there a troponin of the brain? Josh even admits to what he'd take to the proverbial desert island. 
IBCC Episode 123 - Respiratory Alkalosis
In this episode, we follow up with last week's podcast and explain the drivers of hypocapnia and subsequent respiratoy alkalosis. Come listen to a primer for all things ASA, sepsis, encephalopathy or strait mountain biking - induced panic. 
Respiratory Acidosis
In this lean and mean episode, we cover the outrageously broad topic of respiratory acidosis. Come listen to help structure your approach to Won't Breathe, Can't Breathe, and Breathing Won't Work.  If you remeber nothing else, its that hypercapnia does not always mean BIPAP
Pneumocystis Jiroveci Pneumonia
In this episode we cover the rare but important driver of your patients respiratory failure:  Pneumocystis Jiroveci Pneumonia. Come listen to why you should always delineate HIV status, how to approach patient workup and treatment via an invasive and non invasive manner, and why heatwaves is just a sick song.
In this episode, we cover that terrible T... Tamponade. Sit back, and get your learn on while we go beyond Beck's triad, discussing all things pulses paradox, ultrasound assessment, pitfalls, stabilization, and Josh will even melt your mind with low pressure tamponade.
Sympathomimetic Toxicity
In this episode, we cover all things "Upper(s)." Come listen to all things critical care level cocaine, meth and bath salts. Organ dysfunction, rapid control, immersive cooling and more!
Necrotising Fasciitis
In this episode, we cover that scary presentation where your patient goes from seemingly well, to skin melting off and in multi organ failure. Come take a listen for all things clinical presentation, anti-toxin antibiotics regimes, skin cut downs and surgical debridement.
We're back... maybe by popular demand? In this episode, we cover those two phenotypes of acute pulmonary edema: the hyper-acute sympathetic crashing acute pulmonary edema (SCAPE) patient, versus that fluid overload sub acute pulmonary edema (FOSPE). Come listen to all things NIV, nitro, and soothing calm clinical approach. 
Hepatorenal Syndrome
It has been a hot minute, Josh blames Adam. Adam Blames existential crisis, wildfires and the Rona. Come listen to this comeback cast: Hepatorenal Syndrome. We talk all things systemic dilation with renal constriction. We talk newish classification, albumin, pressers and more. So leave your Map goal of 60 behind you, and enjoy these pearls.
Invasive Candidiasis
In this episode, we cover that variable response to when the lab calls with a culture positive for candida. Lines, blood, Urine. Labs, Anti-fungals, imaging... we got it all. 
Atrial Fibrillation
In this episode, we aim to arm you with a basic approach to the rhythm that loves to make the monitors go ping: atrial fibrillation. The age old argument: rate vs rhythm control. What rate is acceptable? Who gets all of the drugs? Why do we love amiodorone? When do you dust off old sparky? Come join us for 42 minutes of Josh giggling and educating us all.
Sodium Channel Blocker Toxicity
In this episode we cover one of the hallmarks of the poisoned patient, that ECG tracing with a widening QRS. After reading the post, come listen for the nuances around all things hypertonic bicarb for sodium delivery, preventing acidosis with isotonic bicarb, how those sneaky-brilliant toxicologists will use lidocaine, and when to push the "panic button" on intra-lipid.
