Episode 94: ICU Journal Club - eCPR in OOHCA
In this episode, we discuss the landmark trial published in JAMA, which evaluated the efficacy of eCPR over standard strategy. We believe although a well-conducted trial, it's still not enough evidence to decide one way or the other w.r.t performing eCPR in patients with out of hospital cardiac arrest.

In this episode, we discuss the evidence behind the dogmatic practice of routinely using ICP monitoring in patients with traumatic brain injury admitted to ICU.
30 minutes | Sep 19, 2021
Episode 79: ICU Journal Club - Low vs high oxygenation Targets
The debate over low vs high oxygenation targets continue. In this podcast, we discuss the recently published trial in JAMA which evaluates the effect of high oxygenation on organ failure scores.
31 minutes | Aug 29, 2021
Episode 77: Long COVID- Long road ahead ?
In this episode, we discuss the controversies around the long term sequelae of COVID-19. We dive deeper into the available evidence and suggest the next steps to address this very significant issue.

Episode 76: Remdesivir & Tocilizumab in COVID-19 - have we gone too far?
The evidence for the use of Remdesivir in COVID-19 is conflicting. Different guidelines have suggested contradictory recommendations on its use in COVID-19. Tocilizumab, although demonstrated mortality benefit in conjunction with steroids, we do not have data on its long term outcomes including quality of life. In this episode, we revisit the controversy surrounding the use of these agents in COVID-19.

Episode 75: Stopping Nasogastric Feeds in ICU- Time for a CHANGE
No standard protocol exists to decrease or eliminate preoperative fasting times for adult ICU patients with cuffed endotracheal tubes; however, multiple intensive care units across the globe have implemented their own protocols with adjusted times for the intubated patient. This has led to significant variability in practices along with potential harm to ICU patients. In this podcast, we challenge this another dogmatic practice in the Intensive care unit and dive deeper into available evidence.
