SCCM Pod-437 Enteral Feeding Intolerance in the Mechanically Ventilated Critically Ill
Enteral feed intolerance occurs frequently during enteral nutrition delivery in the critically ill and is associated with lower enteral nutrition delivery and worse clinical outcomes. Host Ludwig H. Lin, MD, is joined by Daren K. Heyland, MD, MSc, FRCPC,to explore this topic.

SCCM Pod-436 Interventions to Reduce Patient and Clinician COVID-19 Risk
Extubation is a high-risk endeavor in some COVID-19 patients. Host Pamela M. Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP, FACSM, is joined by Joshua H. Atkins, MD, PhD; Christopher Rassekh, MD; and Ara Chalian, MD, to discuss this topic.
SCCM Pod-435 Intracranial and Cerebral Perfusion Pressure Thresholds Associated with In-Hospital Mortality Across Pediatric Neurocritical Care
Targets for treatment of raised intracranial pressure or decreased cerebral perfusion pressure in pediatric neurocritical care are not well defined. Host Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, is joined by Alicia K. Au, MD, MS, to discuss this topic.

SCCM Pod-433 Choosing Wisely for Critical Care: The Next Five
Five new recommendations to reduce waste and enhance value in the practice of critical care address invasive devices, proactive liberation from mechanical ventilation, antibiotic stewardship, early mobilization, and providing goal-concordant care.
SCCM Pod-432 Citrate and Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy
With widespread utilization of continuous renal replacement therapy, its critical to know about how citrate may have a role. Review its role in the anticoagulation process and how it can decrease the likelihood of adverse events and ease clinician workload in this podcast.
SCCM Pod-431 Hypertonic Saline in Children with Raised Intracranial Pressure
Mannitol is a commonly used osmotherapy agent in raised intracranial pressure (ICP) but the side effects are significant. An alternative therapy, hypertonic saline, has shown varied results.
SCCM Pod-430 Optimal Bundle of Management for Cardiac Arrest
Sudden cardiac arrest remains a leading cause of premature death worldwide and survival with favorable neurologic function is less than 10%. Review a practical, attainable roadmap for enhancing the likelihood of neurologically intact survival in this podcast.
SCCM Pod-429 Drug Dosing Considerations in AKI and RRT
Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is complex, and dosing varies among institutions. Review dosing regimens, utilization in COVID-19 patients, and more in this podcast.
SCCM Pod-428 Endotracheal Tube Size and Aspiration
Each year, approximately 790,000 patients in the United States develop acute respiratory failure that requires intubation and mechanical ventilation. This podcast explores the association between endotracheal tube size and aspiration in acute respiratory failure survivors.
SCCM Pod-427 Severe COVID-19 and Sepsis
Severe COVID-19 infection can be a form of viral sepsis with occasionally concomitant bacterial infection. Explore the definition of sepsis and overlap with case descriptions of patients with severe COVID-19, treatment, and more.
SCCM Pod-426 CRRT in the ICU From a Nursing Perspective
Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) requires considerable involvement from the bedside nurse. Explore when to start CRRT, the nursing role, and other considerations and challenges in this podcast.
SCCM Pod-425 Outcomes in Cystic Fibrosis PICU Admissions
Cystic fibrosis patient care has advanced greatly in recent years and the mortality rate has improved. Explore PICU mortality and the factors associated with death among critically ill children with cystic fibrosis in this iCritical Care podcast.
SCCM Pod-424 Critical Care Implications of Respiratory Depression on Hospital Wards
Continuous monitoring on hospital wards can prevent adverse events and unnecessary ICU admissions. Michael Smith, MD, is joined by Ashish K. Khanna, MD, FCCP, FCCM, to review the demographics of respiratory depression.
SCCM Pod-423 Coagulopathy in COVID-19 Patients
COVID-19 is associated with a high prevalence of coagulopathy and venous thromboembolism. Explore what clinicians need to know about this serious problem and how it impacts care delivery.
SCCM Pod-422 Procalcitonin in COVID-19 and Influenza-Related Secondary Bacterial Infections
Procalcitonin testing on admission seems to be a valuable piece of information for early risk assessment and ruling out bacterial co-infection in COVID-19 patients. Host Pamela M. Peeke, MD, MPH, is joined by Michael Broyles, PharmD, and Eric H. Gluck, MD, to explore this topic.
SCCM Pod-421 COVID-19 and Renal Replacement Therapy
The increase in acute kidney injury in COVID-19 patients is resulting in more utilization of renal replacement therapy (RRT) and continuous renal replacement therapy. Host Pamela M. Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP, FACSM , is joined by Michael J. Connor Jr, MD, to review RRT utilization.
SCCM Pod-420 Nebulized Bacteriophages for Prophylaxis of Experimental MRSA VAP
Alternative strategies are needed to combat and prevent antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. Host Ashish K. Khanna, MD, FCCP, FCCM, talks about this issue with David R. Cameron, PhD.
