As we continue our discussion regarding COVID-19, we wanted to cover the point of care ultrasound (POCUS) findings that you should know. Much discussion surrounds this topic including some debates about if and how it should be used. We tackle when, why, and how to use POCUS for COVID-19 as well as what to look for in this video podcast ("vodcast"). In this vodcast we are joined by SPOCUS President, Fritz Fuller
This is our first vodcast and we did this because we believe in the importance of having video specifically for this podcast. It is a bigger file than usual so it may be one that you would want to view from your browser instead of downloading it directly.
If you find the content interesting, make sure to check out Practical POCUS to learn more about POCUS as well as to receive update on courses. They will soon be releasing a free online course that covers lung ultrasound. A full course covering a wide variety of POCUS topics will be available shortly afterward in the coming months. Again, check out PracticalPOCUS.com or click here.
Here are a list of the resources that Fritz Fuller provided and discussed. As mentioned above, Fritz Fuller is the President of the Society of Point of Care Ultrasound (SPOCUS).
There are many great Free and Open Access Medical Education (FOAMed) resources available including with the Society of Point of Care Ultrasound. Mike Stone along with Butterfly Network provided a variety of great materials, as well. You can click here for their COVID-19 materials. However, we included some of Mike Stone's videos below.
