Dr. Paul Marik recently made national headlines with his cocktail for treating patients with serious sepsis.

Should we believe headlines when some are balanced and some aren’t? In this episode of Incident Report LIVE we dive in head first into the septic tank!

UPDATE: Definitely read this EMCrit article for more detailed information!!

(Also, I want to acknowledge a boo boo in my discourse, I mentioned that ascorbic acid precipitates in the kidneys as a potential complication; it’s actually calcium oxalate crystals resulting from ascorbate metabolism that can precipitate…DEAL WITH IT NERDS)
