Covering a wide variety of specialties, DynaMed content is created by a team of world-class clinicians who utilize a rigorous evidence-based process and is infused with clinical expertise that complements and clarifies the evidence. DynaMed quickly identify and surface the right content, saving users valuable time. Topics are streamlined, user friendly and include a wealth of visual content, including images and algorithms. Users can also easily earn CME and MOC credit for all their DynaMed usage.

Use Cases

  • A 55 y/o man presents to the ED with acute shortness of breath and pleuritic pain. Vitals are stable, but a PE is suspected. Using the Pisa Calculator in DynaMed to assess risk, he is deemed to have intermediate risk and utilizing the DynaMed Pulmonary Embolism topic, a quantitative D-Dimer is ordered. Pending results, a chest x-ray is ordered and is normal. The D-Dimer comes back normal, and based on the DynaMed topic recommendation, no further testing is done, and he is discharged.

  • A 42 y/o female with pneumonia rapidly develops acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and is placed on a ventilator. The patient proves difficult to oxygenate. Using the DynaMed topic on Ventilator Management for ARDS algorithm for management, the patient is placed on initial settings of respiratory rate <35, tidal volume (Vt) 8 ml/kg ideal body weight, positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) of 5 and 100% fraction of inspired oxygen (FIO2). Plateau pressure (PlatP) exceeds 30 mmH2O, so using the algorithm Vt is decreased gradually to 6 cm/kg. PlatP improves, but oxygenation worsens, so PEEP is increased, but only as much as Plat P remains < 30 mm H2O. Partial pressure of oxygen/FIO2 (P/F) remains poor at < 150 mm Hg. Neuromuscular blockade and prone positioning are used, resulting in improved oxygenation allowing downward titration of FIO2.

  • A 24 y/o female with known asthma presents with a severe exacerbation requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation. Initial Peak pressure (PP) on the ventilator is very high. Per the DynaMed Critical Asthma Syndrome topic, the ventilator is set to allow permissive hypercapnia with tidal volume at 6 ml/kg ideal body weight, inspiratory flow of 100 L/min, and inspiratory to expiratory ratio of 1:4 and with the goal of plateau pressure (PPlat) < 30 cm H2O. PP improves, but PPlat remains above 30 cm H2O. IV steroids, continuous albuterol nebulization and magnesium sulfate are given per DynaMed management suggestions. PPlat comes down to < 30 cm H2O.
