Link To And Excerpts From PedsCases’ “Single-Ventricle Physiology Episode 1: Tricuspid Atresia”

Note to myself: The best way to review this excellent podcast and show notes is do it on a laptop and have both this post open [so I can review the figures] and the script open so I can tab back and forth from the script to the figures. In the script, the figures are at the very end of the PDF.

In this post I link to and excerpt from PedsCases’ Single-Ventricle Physiology Episode 1: Tricuspid Atresia by Sabine Lague, March 20, 2021.

I found the script somewhat hard to follow when I read it. But listening to it as a podcast it was easier for me to understand.

All that follows is from the above podcast, show notes, and script:

Part 1 of this 3-part podcast series on Single-Ventricle Physiology presents an approach to the management of tricuspid atresia in the neonate. In this episode, listeners will learn about the anatomy-associated anomalies, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation of tricuspid atresia as well as an approach to its diagnosis and management. The podcast was developed by Dr. Sabine Laguë, a pediatrics resident at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada in collaboration with Dr. Shreya Moodley, a pediatric cardiologist at BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.
