This podcast is to discuss two important subjects with ultrasound. The first is a quick review of the Butterfly iQ (more detailed review to come) and the second discusses some of the key benefits of POCUS in EMS and other settings where having a larger machine is not feasible.
This one is sure to generate some controversy, especially by my fellow #FOAMed colleagues but it is a conversation we need to have in all earnest. We must seriously consider if double sequential defibrillation (DSD) is as good a plan as we may have originally thought.
Radial head subluxation, commonly referred to as nursemaid's elbow, is a common condition. In this post we talk about how to diagnose and manage this condition in a timely and effective manner.
We are wrapping up our interview with guests Janelle Bludorn and Laura Blesse-Hampton as part of a collaborative series with the Society of Point of Care Ultrasound (SPOCUS) and Practical POCUS with this portion discussing the logistics of integrating ultrasound into a program.
It is time for the second part of our collaborative series with the Society of Point of Care Ultrasound (SPOCUS) and Practical POCUS. We are again joined by our guests Janelle Bludorn and Laura Blesse-Hampton. This time we discuss how to integrate ultrasound into an educational program.
In collaboration with the Society of Point of Care Ultrasound (SPOCUS) and Practical POCUS, we are striving to help those who are wanting to improve their training programs. We bring faculty that have experience of introducing ultrasound to the classroom. These pearls are beneficial to all levels of education and not just for PA programs.
Under the Gregorian calendar, today is the first day of 2019. Many are making resolutions and there are ways to add this can implemented into your role in medicine. This is a New Year so take on something new and grow.
The original post is on Christmas Day 2018 but the principle remains true no matter the time of year. In medicine, burnout is a commonly faced problem. The Holidays and time away from family makes this even more difficult.
Sometimes in medicine we find things we were not necessarily looking for when we perform a test. We call these incidental findings. While many of these are benign they can potentially be problematic as they can change the workup of a patient including their disposition and management.
The department is busy and you want to keep the flow running smoothly. It is easy to cut corners when it comes to imaging. After all, a radiologist will be reviewing those images. If you are lucky, those images will be read within minutes of them being taken. Why then, should you review those images that you ordered?
