One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App
Summary: OK, so you may have heard the rumors.Is it true? Is the Ultrasound Podcast really coming out with an App? Well, I probably wouldn't be typing this if it wasn't. So here it is! "One Minute Ultrasound". The premise is: We've all been to a course or two now, right? You've seen a lecture on how to do these things. But right before you go in a room to do it, wouldn't it be nice to see it demonstrated one more time. I mean not many of us have an "ultrasound director" with us scanning every shift. The goal is: to teleport ourselves to the bedside with you via your smartphone. We've taken the ultrasound procedures and tried to cram a demo of each one with simultaneous video of hand placement, normal images, and pathology all into one minute each. It's something you can take a look at right before going into a patient's room, or I've been using it to teach med students or residents. It's great to show them quickly how to do it right before scanning something for the first time. It can take care of the "see one" part of "see one, do one, teach one" and really speed up education as it's even got pathology pics, which you usually don't get with your first "see one".
