Episode 519: Oh Baby – Combined oral contraceptives during breastfeeding

In episode 519, Mike and James ask Jen Potter back to the podcast to talk about a common primary care question around oral contraceptives and breast feeding. We review the best available evidence which unfortunately we find out is not the highest quality. Nonetheless, we go over the numbers and then come up with useful, hopefully, suggestions for what to do around this issue.

Episode 518: Avoiding lactose-containing products during acute pediatric diarrhea

In episode 518, Mike and James get Samantha to go through all the evidence we have for restricting lactose-containing foods in children with acute diarrhea. While we find out that looking at this evidence is at best tricky, it seems like reducing or diluting formula may provide a reasonable benefit. Listen to the podcast for the numbers.

Episode 517: PREMIUM – A podcast that hopefully won’t leave you breathless

Episode 517: PREMIUM – A podcast that hopefully won’t leave you breathless

In episode 517, Mike and James talk PREMIUMLY (not a word but it should be) about two new trials that looked at using fixed dose combinations of salbutamol/albuterol and a steroid on a PRN basis in patients with moderate to severe asthma. It seems to have an effect and it may make asthma treatment simpler, but it may also increase the costs when it comes to inhalers.
