Lectures


My lecture schedule is here if you want to see how busy I am, or want to see one of my lectures in the flesh.


These are traditional Powerpoint-style presentations.
The inventory is at 21 lectures. After I get a few dozen up I'll start to think about how I want to organize them.
Journey to NephMadness (Keynote | PDF)
  • 45 minutes
  • Screencast of the lecture is available here

Social Media and Healthcare (Keynote, PDF)
  • Huge slide deck that can be mixed and matched for use with different audiences
  • 639 MB for the Keynote file and 62.6 mb for the PDF
  • Find references, links and meta information here.
  • Alternate form of the lecture for a transplant audience (Keynote | PDF)
    • This was an audience of social workers, nurses, transplant recipients, and policy experts.
    • Lecture is cut down to 30 minutes


Hyponatremia (Keynote, PDF)

  • 91 slides, 1 hour
  • Revised Feb 2013


Non-anion gap metabolic acidosis (Powerpoint, PDF)
    1. In your chloride intoxication group of causes, add TPN
    2. In your GI loss of HCO3, "change HCO3 to HCO3 precursors" since what we lose in diarrhea is not HCO3 per se since pH of the stool is not acidic, we lose citrate, etc which transform into HCO3 eventually
    3. Interesting comment on renal bicarb loss: I would add an extra group and call it decrease renal NH4+ excretion and add distal RTA, renal insufficiency and hypoaldosteronism. You don't lose HCO3 in distal RTA or hypoaldosteronism. You could argue that NH4+ synthesis in proximal tubule generates "new HCO3" but the student will get lost in that concept
    4. In the renal HCO3 loss group I would add post-treatment of DKA, and post-hypocapnia
    5. Toluene can cause both anion gap and non anion gap metabolic acidosis but the non anion gap is more common because the unmeasured anions are rapidly excreted by the kidneys
    6. Pentamidine also blocks ENaC and can cause hyperkalemia

Diabetic Nephropathy (Powerpoint, PDF)
