Meet Adis Keric, Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist and a Board Certified Critical Care pharmacist who works in the Emergency Department and ICU of level 1 trauma center Regions Hospital in Saint Paul, MN. Adis is the founder and host of a new FOAMed podcast, ER-Rx. He started the podcast to inform clinicians in the ED and ICU about up-to-date, appropriate and optimal use of medications in different clinical scenarios.
Dr. Nick Tsipis sits down with Adis to discuss some pearls in Emergency Medicine Pharmacy.
