You may think that Miley Cyrus' on-stage theatrics was the most shocking thing to happen in 2013, but au contraire mon frère. Hold on tight, because the most outrageous thing you've heard between stanzas of "Auld Lang Syn" is that kid's are getting gallbladder disease. This is especially frequent in the good ole US of A where we have mid-morning cheese burgers for a snack. Shocking I know. In this episode Pediatric Gastroenterologist Dr. Doug Fishman, from the Texas Children's Hospital, is going to go through the In-N-Outs of pediatric cholecystitis. Not that In-N-Out is in anyway responsible for pediatric gallstones...they make a tasty burger....try the double-meat animal style...it's fantastic....

How many times have you been involved in an adult or pediatric shoulder reduction that you just can't relocate. Very frustrating, but here's your solution: Dr. Jay Park has invented a method that allows you to reduce a shoulder without sedation (RNs love that) and without any pain to your patient (Press Ganey scores will rise faster than your salary).

Red eyes usually come in pairs and so do podcasts on the subject. In part two of the red eye disorders we discuss the non-threatening maladies that can turn into eye threatening disorders if missed. Sit back and relax and let dear ole' dad tell you one more time why it's going to be OK...If you listen to him. Otherwise you may get spanked. I'm serious he spanked me a lot for not listening. Call CPS; there's still a chance for me....

Harold Andrew Sloas Jr, DO, CAPT, USN-R is a board certified ophthalmologist (and my dad). He had a competition with his son Harold Andrew Sloas III, DO, RDMS, FAAEM to see who could get get more letters behind their name. As it turns out none of those letters have any bearing on what we'll be talking about today.
You're in for a real treat because I got to sit down with dear ole' dad and talk about some red eye disorders. We explore all the threatening causes of the red eye on this podcast and move into the non-threatening red eye disorders on the next episode. You need to know something about both so you can distinguish between the two. Pull out your Kleenex and dry your eyes; you're going to need to see this.

I have had the opportunity to work with some truly amazing people in my life and Dr. Matt Bayes, sports medicine physician extraordinaire, is no exception. Dr. Bayes is the only person I have known to successfully ask about a “code red” and somehow avoid receiving one. Dr. Bayes now resides in St. Louis, Missouri (Bayes from The Lou) and has been part of the sports medicine team that delivers care to the St Louis Cardinals. On this episode Dr. Bayes takes me through the intricacies of diagnosing and managing a pediatric concussion from the ER perspective. Hold on to your head because you’re about to get knocked out....Smokey

One of the most sphincter tightening overdoses to deal with in adults and pediatrics is the CCB overdose. In this podcast I cover all the treatments that work, don't work, and you would think should work to give you a recipe for success. Hold on to your insulin; it's not just for diabetics and critically ill patients anymore. Intralipids??? How the heck does that help??? Well you need to tune in to find out......
