Episode 52 – IVIG in Dermatomyositis and Tranexamic Acid in GI Bleeding

Welcome back Rounds Table Listeners!

We are back today with our Classic Rapid Fire Podcast!

This week, Drs. John and Mike Fralick discuss two recent papers – one, exploring the use of IVIG in the treatment of dermatomyositis, and the second investigating the effect of a tranexamic acid infusion in patients with acute gastrointestinal bleeding. Two papers, here we go!

  1. Trial of Intravenous Immune Globulin in Dermatomyositis (0:00 – 8:38).

  2. Effects of a high-dose 24-h infusion of tranexamic acid on death and thromboembolic events in patients with acute gastrointestinal bleeding (HALT-IT): an international, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial (8:38 – 18:04).

And for the Good Stuff:
