On this episode we talk to Kennon Heard, Juliana Wilson, and Resa E. Lewiss about using ultrasound in calcium channel blocker overdose. We look at some cases from a case series. More info on bedside echo https://www.acep.org/sonoguide/cardiac.html and on E-point Septal Separation (EPSS)
Ultrasound can be an important part of the tox exam, especially when dealing with cardio active meds
Ultrasound can help guide therapy after CCB ingestion in terms of filling the tank with fluids or starting with pressors/inotropes/insulin
Consider looking at EPSS to determine patients with objectively decreased EF
Use ultrasound to evaluate tox patients to add to our knowledge. Scan, record, share, help out your colleagues
Stay tuned as we share some animal data on CCB and ultrasound.
