Dr. Rahul Patwari is a one-man statistics teaching machine. In part 4 of this Evidence Based Medicine series, he reviews advance concepts in statistics and calculations including: case-fatality rates, crude mortality rates, specific-mortality rates, years of potential life lost, and direct and indirect age adjustments.
In part three of this Evidence Based Medicine series, Dr. Rahul Patwari does a deep dive on more advanced concepts in statistics. Specifically, he reviews: odds, incidence, prevalence, and incidence rates. What IS the difference between incidence and prevalence? Ever wonder?
In part 2 of this Evidence Based Medicine series by Dr. Rahul Patwari, more advanced statistical concepts are reviewed. These concepts include ROC curves, screening tests, probability (multiplication and addition rules) and the binomial theorem. Sounds daunting but these short videos really condenses the concepts into digestible lessons.
Across the medical profession, an essential skill is to be able to understand and interpret original research publications to guide your evidence-based practices. Dr. Rahul Patwari reviews the basics of statistics, specifically sensitivity and specificity, predictive values, probability, and the tradeoff between sensitivity and specificity.
Complications from left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) increasingly account for Emergency Department visits. What are LVADs? They are a short-term, artificial, circulatory device which performs the function of a very poorly functioning heart. It is important to understand the myriad of complications that can arise and the general approach to patients with an LVAD. These two short videos by Dr. Rahul Patwari summarize these in a nutshell.
