Episode 98 - A Knot of Suture Tales
Play • 38 min

In this episode, we're going to do something a bit different. I've taken a number of shorter but very interesting topics, either that I've come across on my own or have been suggested by listeners, and turned 5 of them into this episode. There's a medication, a maneuver, a procedure, a person, and a device! And if you have an idea for a topic, please let me know, maybe it will be on the next suture tales!

Psilocybin assisted therapy, mental health, and how we doubled the size of our company
It’s been a very long time since I have jumped on the Medgeeks podcast. But, every year I share and reflect everything I have learned with the community...and this year is no different! This episode is heavily focused on mental health and the pandemic. Much of what I discuss today is based off my personal experience, which is what shaped the growth of our company. Today, I’ll be discussing: * The Pandemic * My experience with psilocybin * Why I started therapy and how it’s helped shape Medgeeks * How our company doubled in size and brought on many full time employees in a time when many businesses were laying people off. * The #1 mistake PAs and NPs make after graduation * The secret to being the absolute best clinician you can be * 4 main takeaways I learned in 2020 that changed my life It’s my hopes that I can do my small part to help squash the stigma behind mental health. After all, my fiance is a marriage and family therapist :). At the end of the episode, I ask to see if anyone is interested in discussing business and/or personal growth. If that’s you, just click the link below to sign up. If there’s enough interest, I'll hold a free virtual session, where we can work together to help you get ahead. I have nothing to sell. This is just my way of giving back: https://medgeeks.co/business-talk Talk soon! - Andrew p.s. The future podcast episodes will not be like this. We’ll continue to focus on evidence based medicine to help you master medicine. But, it’s my podcast and I wanted to share haha. Happy New Year!

#177 Agnosia
To quote Donald Rumsfeld, “there are things we know we know…. we know there are some things we do not know... But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know…it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones.” In neurology, the agnosias are not that dissimilar from Rumsfeld’s 'unknown unknowns.' In this week’s program, we discuss the nosology and nomenclature for the agnosias, the localization, and the importance of recognizing one. Produced by James E. Siegler. Music courtesy of Dr. Turtle, Grossman, Ewell and Grainger, Marco Trovatelli, and Purple Planet Music. The opening theme was composed by Jimothy Dalton. Sound effects by Mike Koenig and Daniel Simion. Unless otherwise mentioned in the podcast, no competing financial interests exist in the content of this episode.

Peptic Ulcer Disease
Ulcers are open sores that develop in the skin or mucous membranes. In peptic ulcer disease (PUD), painful sores develop, most commonly in the lining of the stomach, duodenum, or both. PUD arises when there is an imbalance between protective factors (eg, mucosal barrier) and damaging factors (eg, hydrochloric acid). How does PUD differ from gastritis? Gastritis describes inflammation of the stomach lining, which can be acute or chronic. With gastritis, the submucosae are not harmed, and the muscular stomach wall remains intact. In PUD, there is ulceration through the mucosa into underlying tissue, which can reach into the submucosa and muscular layer. It may cause perforation and bleeding. Chronic gastritis can be a predisposing factor, but it is not required to diagnose PUD. After listening to this AudioBrick, you should be able to: * Define peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and state the most important risk factors. * Describe the morphologic and pathogenetic features of Helicobacter pylori and the histology of gastric lesions with which it is associated. * Explain gastrinoma and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome as a cause of PUD. * Describe the typical clinical presentation of PUD and the tests used to make a diagnosis. * Explain the most common treatment strategies for PUD. * List the potential adverse outcomes of untreated PUD. You can also check out the original brick on Peptic Ulcer Disease from our Gastrointestinal collection, which is available for free.
