In a landmark case, a US jury has found a former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murder over the death of African-American George Floyd. From the medical point of view, one interesting and controversial aspect of this trial was of use of a video as evidence to prove the cause of death.

In this episode of the Physician’s Weekly Podcast, we spoke with our regular expert contributor with the pseudonym Dr. Medlaw about how videos can provide medical evidence for the murder of George Floyd.

Also in this episode, we interview Dr. Brady Scott, Associate Professor in the Division of Respiratory Care at Rush University about Lessons learned in critical care / respiratory care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Medical Oncologist Sara Hurvitz, MD, at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center discusses a new clinical trial she is involved with taking a novel approach to treat breast cancer patients.
