About ER-Rx/ Disclaimer


ER-Rx is a podcast dedicated to informing emergency room/ intensive care unit physicians, residents, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, and nurses on appropriate and optimal use of medications. This podcast will provide laid-back, fun, useful information in easily digestible portions. Tune in each week as we review recently-published guidelines and studies (“Fresh Fruit“), answer medication-related questions (“Pharmacy Consult“), present our own mini version of “Grand Rounds” on a wide variety of clinical topics, and enjoy “An Expert Talks” where we invite guests to discuss a critical topic.

Our host, Dr. Adis Keric, is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist and a Board Certified Critical Care pharmacist who currently works in the emergency room and intensive care units at a large, level I trauma center. Adis has more than 8 years of hospital pharmacy experience, including 2 years of residency. He acts as a PGY-1 and PGY-2 critical care pharmacy residency preceptor in the emergency room, surgical intensive care unit, medical intensive care unit, and the neurocritical care unit. He is also a preceptor for local pharmacy students and is heavily involved in the research aspect of the pharmacy residency programs at his site.

We would love to hear from you! Any suggestions for future topics and any feedback is greatly appreciated. After all, this podcast is made to suit your needs.

“I love listening to this podcast because I can listen to 1 or 2 on my way to work and it provides great info! As a paramedic, this podcast has really helped me understand the “why” we give certain meds.”

“Ideal podcast to listen on the way to my shift. Learning points throughout!”

“I’m currently in my last year of pharmacy school […] I just happen to come across your podcast on YouTube as I was trying to find a good explanation regarding the misleading sulfa allergy in non-antibiotic sulfonamides. Your explanation was great. I can’t believe I’m only now finding out about your podcasts but please continue to make them for as long as you can. Prospective pharmacists, such as myself, really appreciate you taking the time to put such great educational content out there.”
