Getting called to a hypotensive patient can be terrifying. In this lecture we review the algorithm for the patient with undifferentiated hypotension. We go over the stepwise approach to these patients focused on what interventions you should consider.
So your patient said they were hypotensive but now their bp is fine. What are you supposed to do now? Do you just anchor on his or her bp meds as the cause of the hypotension? In this EMEd lecture we review a systematic approach for these patients. We develop a critical differential based on the causes of shock and then we walk through the work up and the conundrum of whether to admit or dispo these patients.
In this EM Ed lecture we complete our two part series on Dizziness. In this lecture we discuss how to drill down if your patient is having vertigo. We review the general approach, work-up, and management of patients with central and peripheral vertigo.
In this EM Ed lecture we discuss the approach to a patient with a chief complaint of dizziness. The first branch point is to determine whether the patient is having vertigo or light headedness. After that the appropriate work up can be initiated.
