GAIN A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF ACID-BASE DISORDERS IN COVID-19 PATIENTS
Acid-base disturbances are common - especially in patients with severe viral infections such as COVID-19.
The accurate interpretation of lab tests in patients with acid-base problems is key to managing patients in critical condition.
This video series is a collection of previously recorded MedCram videos on ABGs and acid-base disturbances.
This course will remain free, please share it with anyone you think may be interested. We hope you find it helpful, and we welcome feedback.

Easy to follow, precise and full of notions. Highly suggested
This is a new way of understanding ABG interpretation. The presentation was clear, I was very attentive up to the end.

This was very informative and gave a great explanation of acid/base balance. Thank you.

Generally love the MEDCRAM courses. Furthermore as a medical student I loved analysis of gases (was a calculus and chemistry major). Needed to review as have not thought about it for + years in depth. Found it very difficult to listen to the mini lecture series as it was not engaging. Need to focus on why and how and then immediate practice problem for application or it becomes very dry. I'm sorry but I have to rate this poorly because I think there is a lot of room for improvement, particularly as Medcram usually do great courses.
