We wrap up our month of discussing point of care ultrasound (POCUS) papers by having our guest Michelle Perkins. Over the last couple of years a flurry of evidence has come out regarding abscess management. Now, POCUS is taking center stage in a recent paper. Here to help us discuss it is one of our favorite guests, Michelle Perkins.
There are many ways to confirm successful intubation. Some are better than others, but they all have limitations. One newer approach is the use of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) to provide real-time confirmation of tube placement. We will talk about how to do this exam and its evidence in this blog and podcast.
Although point of care ultrasound (POCUS) is a valuable tool, there are times that a formal radiology performed ultrasound is needed. We continue our October POCUS month marathon with a discussion on this topic and how we can improve success for our radiology colleagues. Mainly, we want patient's to have a properly sized bladder that will allow for the best imaging on transabdominal pelvic ultrasound.
Continuing in our month long discussion of point of care ultrasound (POCUS), we move to talking about patient understanding and satisfaction. This is all in conjunction with Practical POCUS which will be having courses at the end of this year. We have previously heard that the use of bedside ultrasound has helped with patient satisfaction, but a recent paper investigated the benefits with improving patient understanding.
The month of October is often associated with Halloween and people think "hocus pocus" but this time we are promoting point of care ultrasound (POCUS) with a month-long discussion of subjects regarding bedside ultrasound. This is all in conjunction with Practical POCUS which will be having courses at the end of this year. Our first topic, ultrasound for the diagnosis of urolithiasis.
