Episode 492: PREMIUM – New data on footwear and salt substitutes

In episode 492, Mike and James delve into a couple of potentially practice-changing results. The first trial looked at the effect of different shoes for knee osteoarthritis. You might be surprised by the results. The second trial is the first ever look at a salt substitute and what it does, believe it or not, to cardiovascular events and death. Yeah! You might also be surprised by the results. Check out what was found in this PREMIUM podcast.

Episode 491: Keeping it Simple for Emergency Room Dyspepsia

In episode 491, Mike and James invite Mike Kolber to talk about Pink Ladies and White Knights. In medical terms we are referring to whether or not it makes sense to add lidocaine and antispasmodics to antacids in patients who present to an emergency room with dyspepsia. Please ignore the parts when both Mikes battle it out for a place at King Arthur’s Round Table and when one of them wears a pink dress for effect.
