I have been producing podcasts since 2014 and have found it an invaluable way of networking with others and enabling me to pick others brains when trying to understand a subject.
Below are the last few podcasts for you to listen to directly from the website. Just click on the episode you are interested in and the show notes and podcast player will appear. There are many more which I have not put on to this page- but you can access them by other means if you wish.
If you prefer you can go directly to my page at Libsyn where I host the podcasts, or just find them on whichever podcatcher you use on your phone and listen to them from there.
Sue Brierley Hobson is a dietitian in Wales and was part of a recent study looking into the efficacy of volume based feeding. We chat about this and the PERFECT protocol.
Safety and efficacy of volume-based feeding in critically ill, mechanically ventilated adults using the 'Protein & Energy Requirements Fed for Every Critically ill patient every Time' (PERFECT) protocol: a before-and-after study.
Dr Paul Hughes Webb chats with me about how we define aneamia and what we can do about it for our patients.
The last podcast from the NTI2019 and this was with other practitioners who all use Social Media to help others learn. This was a great conversation and a great way to wrap up. Thanks NTI I had a great time.
Maureen A Seckel chatted about some of the studies she had noticed over the last year related to sepsis and I then went on to discuss proning with Danette Mitchell and how she had implemented an education program in her unit.
Michael H Ackerman and Dr. Tom S. Ahrens chat with me about some of the recent changes in sepsis management. (Spoiler alert- not many to talk about!)
Brandy Venable and I discuss how we can utilise QR codes to create just in time learning for the staff in critical care.
What are the heamodynamics we should be concerned with and should we be measuring them?
Jason developed life threatening sepsis after catching the H1N1 virus. He spent a lot of time in ITU, but then decided to become an ITU nurse. This gives him a unique perspective.
@onlyintheicu is the twitter handle of a nurse who has experienced some mental health issues including an attempted suicide. She and I discuss the implications of this increasing problem for ICU staff
Sometimes handing over our patients problems to another health care provider can be done badly not getting us the response we need. How can we improve that?
I finally met Sean Dent who posts very regularly on Facebook and Instagram and is also someone I follow and interact with on Twitter. We also chat with Sarah Wells who is trying to help new and junior nurses by supporting them via social media.
Nicole Kupchik presented some of the key studies of the last year. Here she covers some of them for us with Anna Rodriguez
Ruth Kleinpell, Teresa Rincon and Denise Ward chat with Bryan Boling about the development of Telehealth in The USA.
Jon White chats with Nancy and Gayle about what makes staffing levels safe and how we can ensure that we keep our staff healthy.
Bryan Boling chats with Daniel and Brandi about some of the liver problems our patients can have at the #NTI2019
Megan (@nursenoodles) is president elect at the conference this year and in this episode she chats with Jon (@technursejon) about her upcoming work, social media and how she got that Twitter name!
One of the reasons our patients cannot sleep is because of all the noise we make at night. Is the answer just to make less noise? How can we do this? Will it make a difference?
I chat with Julie Darbyshire (@JLDarbyshire) whose PhD is on this subject to find out more.
There are now Advanced Practitioners appearing across the world of nursing, physiotherapy and paramedicine to mention just a few.
Here Bryan and I chat with Ruth Kelinpell who is the President of the Society of Critical Care Medicine about how these roles developed, what is happening today and what may happen in the future.
Lots of interesting points raised and some great food for thought.
What happens to our patients after they leave the ICU?
ICU patients are more complex even after discharge. They have a lot of post-discharge needs that make them unique and not every primary care provider is equipped to deal with them. That's why a number of centers are starting to develop ICU recovery clinics that see patients after they are discharged.
Today on the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Ashley Montgomery-Yates, an attending physician in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine division at the University of Kentucky and director of UK's ICU Recovery Clinic.

The right ventricle is often overlooked in critical care in favour of the attention to the left side of the heart. But acute right heart failure is important and today on the podcast we discuss its implications for critical care.

I was lucky enough to be able to join Tanj and Dale Needham in this conversation at the ICS State of the Art conference 2018 in London.
We discuss some of the ongoing issues with delirium in the critical care patient and how we might help them in prevention.
All too often, we see critical care and palliative care as opposites, but they really go together nicely. Today on the podcast, we talk with Dr. Jessica McFarlin (@JessMcFarlinMD) about palliative care and how we can integrate it into the care of our ICU patients.
