Episode Summary

We went into the ring and knocked out the first Q & A in episode 25. Because of the overwhelmingly positive feedback, we are back for another round…Say What! In this episode, we’ll go over several pharmacology questions that range from medications that affect hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction to platelet inhibitors. Along the way, we’ll give you tips and suggestions to help dust out the cobwebs and bring that anesthesia knowledge back into the forefront of your mind. So exercise that mind, we are going back into the ring!
