Stress Dose Steroids

Your time is valuable and so is mine. That’s why I’m sharing brief, focused podcast episodes that will hone in on a single problem. This time, it’s stress dose steroids. Learn about how to give them and to not worry about tons of body surface area related math when you have a sick child in front of you.
