Cefazolin in Penicillin-Allergic Patients
My guest this week is Dr. Matthew Vanneman, an attending adult cardiothoracic anesthesiologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital.  We explore the claim that an alternative antibiotic to cephalosporins (e.g., cefazolin) should be selected for penicillin-allergic patients in the perioperative setting.  A list of references is available at depthofanesthesia.com.  We'd love to hear from you! Email us at depthofanesthesia@gmail.com or tweet us @DepthAnesthesia.

My guest this week is Dr. Daniel Saddawi-Konefka, program director of the Anesthesia Residency Program at Massachusetts General Hospital.  We explore the claim that mask ventilation should be "checked" or "confirmed" prior to administering a paralytic. We discuss some of the rationales and investigate the literature. A list of references is available at depthofanesthesia.com. We'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to Depth of Anesthesia!
This is a podcast exploring the depth of our critical thinking around clinical practices. Anesthesia is full of claims. A claim is a practice decision that we either believe is true or is something we default to. We think that for every claim in anesthesia, we should know what is supported or refuted by evidence and what claims have no evidence base but “stand to reason”. We hope you start to see these claims and become less satisfied not knowing what you don’t know.
