Hello Friends 👋
This week we are discussing erythropoiesis stimulating agents. Focusing primarily on erythropoietin, we cover a broad range of topics and issues. Daphna reviewed for us, on Monday, the physiology and mechanism of action of Erythropoietin. With this valuable information on hand, we continued with an interesting discussion on the evidence surrounding the use of erythropoieting for anemia. We then discussed the use of erythropoietin for neuroprotection, covering data for both preterm and term infants. On thursday we had the honor and the pleasure of welcoming to the show the famous Dr. Robin Ohls from the University of Utah who helped us clear up some important questions and clarify certain controversies surrounding the use of EPO in the NICU. As is customary, we finished our week with a series of interesting board review style questions. Please check out all of the resources below including the powerpoint presentation, link to articles, and importantly CME credits for the episodes this week.
