Episode 16: Increased ICP Therapy with Dave Mintz

In this episode I welcome back Dr. David Mintz, neuroanesthesiologist, to discuss the treatment of increased intracranial pressure in the perioperative period and brain relaxation during neurosurgery.  Dr. Mintz will be back in the future to talk about the physiology of increased ICP.

Episode 15: IV Fluids

In this episode I discuss the use of IV fluids for perioperative use including how to decide when to give fluid, the downsides of over resuscitation, whether to use crystalloid or colloid, and whether to use saline or a balanced salt solution such as LR.
