In this 187th episode I welcome Dr. Gabe Tharp to the show to discuss his recent article in Anesthesiology: “Body Habitus and Dynamic Surgical Conditions Independently Impair Pulmonary Mechanics during Robotic-assisted Laparoscopic Surgery.” We discuss his findings and whether we should be using much higher levels of PEEP than we currently do.
Gabe’s group is on Twitter: @uvmanesthesia

In this 143rd episode I welcome Dr. Michael Scott to the show to discuss fluid management in ERAS cases and how cardiac output monitoring may help us do that well.
In this 142nd episode I welcome Dr. Marcos Vidal Melo to the show to discuss Driving Pressure and Transpulmonary pressure. We discuss what they are, how they differ from plateau pressure, and how they may help guide safe mechanical ventilation.
