Jeff:Welcome back to Emplify, the podcast corollary to EB Medicine’s Emergency Medicine Practice. I’m Jeff Nusbaum, and I’m back once again with my co-host, Nachi Gupta. We’ll be taking you through the April 2018 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice: Jaundice in the Emergency Department: Meeting the Challenges of Diagnosis and Treatment.

Nachi: This is a huge change of pace from our last two episodes – on inhalational injuries and thermal burns - but definitely an important topic, especially at our liver referral center.

Jeff: Yea, definitely important at a liver center, but let’s not act like jaundice is specific to the large academic centers, as there are approximately 52,000 ED visits a year for patients with jaundice.


Meet the Hosts

Drs. Gupta and Nusbaum are practicing emergency physicians in two of the busiest emergency departments in New York City. Join Jeff, a former firefighter, and Nachi, a former mathematician, as they take you through the April 2018 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice: Jaundice in the Emergency Department: Meeting the Challenges of Diagnosis and Treatment.

Nachi Gupta, MD, PhD

Jeff Nusbaum, MD
