About Us

Medical Bombs of Knowledge is a podcast forum offered by Blake Briggs which explores board relevant topics throughout medicine. The focus of each episode varies, but they are always discussed in a "theater of the mind" style, where the listener is not simply memorizing disease names but actually understanding the physiology, pathology, microbiology, and pathophysiology as they relate to each other. Each podcast is an immersive experience that tells a story by painting a picture of disease, connecting multiple organ systems to one another, and challenging the listener to think multidisciplinary when it comes to studying medical conditions.

UGIB- The Road to Treitz

Burning Man- Emergent Burns approach

10 points go to Gryffindor to the first person who can guess where this podcast cover photo was taken. I am super stoked about this episode. In this special seminar we will cover approach to emergent, severe burns. Particular attention will be given to the ABCs and general ATLS workup, cyanide and CO poisoning, and fluid resuscitation of burns. This is a must have episode for those taking the surgery shelf, oral boards, or Step 2 soon. Enjoy and comment below with questions.

Burning Man- Emergent Burns approach

A Joint too far- Septic Arthritis and Osteomyelitis

What's worse than memorizing all those autoantibodies and zebra diseases? Remembering microbiology and relevant pharmacology. We are covering septic arthritis and osteomyelitis and we are going to hit it from every angle- presentation, diagnosis, pathophysio, treatments, and causative organisms.The picture above captures what happens when microorganisms enter the bone. So that's not good. Let's try to talk about how to not let that happen.

Twisted Bowels- SBO and LBO

Warning! Obstruction ahead. This podcast covers the high yield surgical topic of bowel obstruction- a common ER presentation and CLASSIC surgical shelf topic. Every medical student needs to know this for their surgery wards. We cover presentations, causes, diagnosis and treatment. We also answer the age old question what the hell "air fluid levels" are. Enjoy the new mnemonic!

Kidney Rock

The greatest hits album returns starring Calcium, Oxalate, Urate, and a guest appearance by Cystine. We will cover nephrolithiasis- the types of stones, why they happen, risk factors and high yield associations with each of them, presentation, and of course diagnosis and treatment. Bonus, a Harry Potter mnemonic is embedded somewhere in this podcast. "Roll on", as Kid(ney) Rock would say.

Tale of the Tough Mother- CNS infections

Its a story about the toughest mother around, the Dura Mater, versus the innumerable microorganisms that want to gain access to the most secluded part of the human body- the Central Nervous System. Who will win? We will cover the pathophysiology of brain infections, including Meningitis, Encephalitis, and Brain abscesses - the causative organisms, presentations, diagnoses, and treatments.

Rich Mans Plague- Gout

It is incredible to think about the multitude of different diseases that we face today compared to Hippocrates' time. Gout is one of them. We will describe the pathophysiology, presentations, diagnoses, and treatments of crystalloid arthritis (gout and pseudogout), as well as the methods of arthroscopies.

Talitha Cumi - Sudden Cardiac Death

Sudden Cardiac Death kills 12% of the US population every year. What?! Today we will run through the major causes of why people literally drop dead. We will delve into their high yield pathophysiology, and finally end on covering what the hell goes on during a "code" when someone enters cardiac arrest.
