Summary: The EUP presents educational insight into different ultrasound techniques and possibilities. Take your emergency medicine practice to a new level today!
You’re right, that was a lot of possible ultrasound mistakes the Canadians laid on us last time. They’re not done, though. There’s more. Listen to find out. We would tell you more about it, but we don’t want to ruin the surprise…… Also, if you haven’t heard, we’re teaching at a pretty sweet conference in Cabo in December with Weingart, Orman, Sloas, and Levitan. Find out more about that HERE and register HERE. Very limited space at this all-inclusive conference. Coming up: We know we’re in the back to the basics series, but we can’t help ourselves. We’re bringing you a not so basic talk in a week or so. It’s on the FASH exam, which is a sweet, cutting edge exam for TB/HIV. It features Hein Lamprecht, a genius South African EM doc we met at Sonosweden who taught us this. It’s pretty awesome. Lastly, we can’t not mention SMACC. We just got back and it was……INCREDIBLE. What an amazing conference with amazing attendees and speakers. It’s in Chicago next year, so be on the lookout for when registration opens up. Hope to see you there in 2015.

Are you sitting down? If not, then go ahead….have a seat. We’ve got news. Sometimes…..how do we say this……ultrasounding the patient may not be the right thing to do. Now, we’ve yet to find that particular situation, but the Canadian guys tell us this is the case. In fact, there’s a whole list of problems and pitfalls that can be associated with ultrasound. We’ve kind of known this for a while, but honestly we can’t bring ourselves to say it out loud. So we’ve got these guys to do it for us. I mean, they’re Canadian. You can’t hate a Canadian no matter what they say or how funny they say it. Seriously, we think this is pretty important. We spend TONS of time showing you all how to do this and telling you why you should be doing ultrasound. We at least need to discuss a little bit during this “Back to the Basics” series about when not to perform an ultrasound and what mistakes you can make, especially starting out. Also, are you still sitting down? Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound is FREE on iTunes as well as Inkling.com.

If you hadn’t heard, the Academy of Emergency Ultrasound has an incredible set of videos on Vimeo. GO THERE NOW! There are both basic and advanced videos there. Because we’re still in the “Back to the Basics” series here on the podcast, we’ve loaded up several of our favorite basic ones for you here. These are by incredibly smart ultrasound leaders, and this sampling is: Central Lines by Arun Nagdev DVT by Frances Russell EFAST by Beth Cadigan Renal by Peregrine Dalziel This is WAY longer than normal. It’s over an hour. Also, it’s pretty much none of us. Not like our normal podcast. We didn’t want to soil these lectures with any of our shenanigans. We’ll have more shenanigans for you in a week. Oh yeah, almost forgot. We’re going to be putting the ebook on 100% off sale on iTunes as well as inkling.com.

The moment you’ve been waiting for is here……Tissue Harmonic Imaging! That’s right. We heard you. The 100 emails per day we receive begging us to cover this hot topic have become too much for us to ignore. So we got our physics dude, Mike Stone, to tackle this hot topic. It’s tissue, it’s harmonics, and it’s imaging all rolled into one with some homework at the end. If there’s one thing that can make physics more fun, it’s homework. Also, if we haven’t mentioned it in the last 5 minutes, #Sonosweden was awesome! What a great conference put on by some amazing Swedes. After such hospitality we feel a little bad crushing their olympic dreams this winter…..but not bad enough to not rub it in anyway. We can’t wait to work with these Swedes in the future. In fact, we’re not going to wait. A couple of them have agreed to join The Ultrasound Leadership Academy. These are brilliant Scandanavians who will contribute awesome things to the Academy.

Doppler physics…..kind of basic? So doppler physics is not an easy topic, but it is a basic topic. To fully grasp and really understand a lot of ultrasound topics, especially cardiac ultrasound, you really need to get this doppler stuff. Continuing with our @bedsidesono theme, Mike Stone will be covering this basic physics talk. Also, as we’ll explain, Castlefest will be streamed this year again, but using some new technology. With the help of Google Glass and @EM_Educator, Rob Rogers, we hope to make it a great event for you even if you can’t come learn with us in person.

We’re continuing the Back to the Basics Series with @bedsidesono explaining ultrasound artifacts like only he can. Yes, 3 physics talks in a row, but again, we think this is important. We’re trying to roll them out one right after another so we can also keep giving you the juicy clinical stuff. Patience grasshopper….. Also, we’ve got #glass and we’re super pumped about it. We’re trying lots of different ways to optimize and enhance ultrasound education with Google Glass without being Glassholes. Look for more from us in the future on this. The first thing we’re trying is integration into conferences. We’ll be using it at Sonosweden this month and then really going strong with Glass at Castlefest in April. See you then!

Yes, it’s cool to talk about advanced ultrasound, echo, and all the things we discuss here. It’s absolutely necessary, though, to have a solid base to put all that fun learning on……and it all starts with physics. We know what you’re thinking: “Please, not a physics lecture!” Well we kind of agree, but this is different. This is Mike Stone, @bedsidesono. He is pretty phenomenal at explaining this stuff. He’s got his Doceri out and is going to be drawing and speaking us inch by inch towards an understanding of ultrasound physics that will enhance all of your ultrasound knowledge. Enjoy!

OK, check it out. We’re pretty proud of the super hard work we’ve put into making the Ultrasound Leadership Academy an educational experience that you’ll have to see for yourself to believe. Where else will you get your own ultrasound machine, a simulator, an iPad loaded with content, mobile content delivered and consumed at your own pace, and weekly meetings with the worlds greatest ultrasound educators? Also, it’s time to go back to the basics! We’ve been putting this off for a while now, but it’s time. So we’re starting with the most basic of all basics…..hand maneuvers. This may seem trivial, but we spend quite a bit of time teaching how to move the probe. So here you go. Grab your probe and get ready to start rocking. Stone’s gonna teach you the basics. How to optimize your image with some simple movements. Next week……physics. Visit Ultrasound Leadership Academy Follow us! @ultrasoundpod on Twitter Also, rate and review the podcast in iTunes.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you know how to do the EFAST scan. We know you know. This is not that. This is some next level stuff. This is a large set of skills that may help you in certain circumstances. This is not a new protocol, not a replacement for the EFAST, just more mad skillz. Oh yeah, if you don’t know how to do the EFAST….stick around. Starting in January we’re doing a “Back to the Basics” series. We’ll cover EFAST as well as many other basic skills. So we got you.

It’s time to practice what you learned last time. We’re gonna run you through some pericardial tamponade cases and test you. Will you make the right decision? Will your patient live…or die? Let’s use the the greatest simulator in the world, your brain, to prepare you for when this actually happens. Also, there’s a new ebook out about Trauma Ultrasound that we think you should check out. It’s free, and we reviewed it on this episode. Click play to hear out completely unbiased opinion…… As some of you have noticed, there was a One Minute Ultrasound App update that came out yesterday for iOS devices. Make sure you grab it. As always, come practice it with us live at: www.castlefest2014.com Study up: Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound Volume 1 Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound Volume 2 One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App p.s. – Yes, Sonocloud.org has been acting up. We’re working on it….chill out.
Turns out that pericardial tamponade is bad. Your patient dies if you don’t diagnose and treat it. The problem is, this is something you don’t do very often, right? So you HAVE to know this cold! Study it, learn it, imagine doing it, and then be ready when it happens.

You liked Carotid VTI for volume responsiveness? Well, then you’re going to love this. This is another concept that is being studied right now…….not proven yet. But it’s awesome!! All the ease of finding the carotid, without all the fuss over angle of insonation. We’ve got Vicki Noble, the lung queen, and Dave Mckenzie, recent graduate of the ultrasound fellowship at Mass General talking about this technique. Also, as you read above, we have a new segment we’ll occasionally run, especially when it’s a new or controversial topic. We’ll get The Man, Chris Fox, to give us his thoughts and find out exactly “What does the Fox say”. Also… Somehow we got invited to teach at smaccGOLD this year….. must have been some sort of mistake. Regardless, we’re taking the opportunity to hop a puddle jumper down under and ultrasound some joeys and wallabies. If you’re worth your weight in Fosters you take yourself over to the their website and register. And if you’re coming, make sure you submit your abstract by Nov 22nd.

So you love the concept of the passive leg raise, but getting that darn LVOT VTI is really tough, right? Well, what if you could just perform a carotid doppler instead? Much easier window! Our friends at the University of Arizona have been studying this, and there’s already been some stuff published on this. So here it is: How to and ...
Yes, we’re still in the summer of the resuscitationist, and yes, IV placement is a pretty basic skill. We’ll be bringing you one last fluid responsiveness podcast extremely soon (hint – it’s about carotid flow). But you can’t resuscitate your patient without access. And it’s been one year since our free ultrasound guided IV course and we wanted to follow ...
