Intuss with Russ!  Let’s talk about ultrasound for intussusception.  Also, want to learn ultrasound in Yellowstone?  #foamed

You’ve got a little bugger with belly pain and they may have intussusception…..or they could just have gastro.  How to know?  Well, this isn’t the xray podcast.  Of course, you’re going to ultrasound them.  Or if you’re not, watch this and hopefully you will afterwards.

Turns out ultrasound for intussusception isn’t that difficult.  There’s pretty good research on point of care providers doing it, and we’ve got Russ Horowitz from the University of Chicago on to show you how.

Also, we’re teaming up with Rich Levitan in Jackson Hole, WY at Jackson Lake Lodge next year to put on an ultrasound course at the same time as his airway course.  It’s an incredible place, and it’ll be an incredible course!  Register and find out at www.yellowstoneultrasound.com.  It’s the week before SMACC next year, so a perfect bonus course if you happen to be over here anyway.  Of course, if you’re a member of the Ultrasound Leadership Academy, this course is included in the Academy.  See you there!

 TEE part 3, new resus project with @emcrit and @criticalcarenow, and new joke of the week! #foamed 

WOW, lots going on here.  Would give you a long description of each……but why don’t you just listen.  I’ll sum it up.
1.  TEE Finale:  This is it.  Done with TEE.  Mike describes how exactly to get started using this with a lecture straight from The Ultrasound Leadership Academy.
2.  Resuscitation Leadership Academy:  This is a project we’ve been working on with Scott Weingart and Haney Mallemat that we’re SUPER excited about.
3.  Joke of the week:  Not many people know Jody, but those who do know him understand how valuable a part of the podcast he is.  He edits, fixes things, does IT stuff…..and make us laugh (most important).  So we’re gonna start sharing him with you via a random, ridiculous joke at the end of each podcast.  Waste of your time?  Well, then just cut off before then and go do something “more important” than laugh.

TEE part 2 with @arntfield. #foamed. Also, EDECMO lab by @drbellezzo, @zackshiner, and @emcrit at www.castlefest2015.com

OK, so here it is.

Rob’s gonna show us exactly how to do this.  How to take those 800 normal TEE views and distill it down into a few key views.  We know you aren’t doing this yet, but we think it’s coming.  Just a matter of time.  Get ahead of the curve.
And yes, you read the title right.  The EDECMO folks, Shiner, Bellezzo, and Weingart will be teaching an ECMO lab at Castlefest.  Sure, it’s not really an “ultrasound procedure”, but we’re obsessed with this cutting edge, futuristic technique of saving lives that couldn’t be saved otherwise.  So we convinced them to come out to Castlefest, mainly so we could learn it from them, but if you’re coming, you may as well learn as well.  We’re super pumped about this!  You can sign up on the Castlefest website now.  Oh yeah, Rob will be there again teaching TEE.  We’ll run some ultimate simulations with ECMO, TEE, and all kinds of things that make us as excited as a tick on a fat dog.

Bedside TEE with @arntfield Part 1.  Yes, you heard right.  Point of care providers doing TEE.  It just got real.  #foamed

At Castlefest 2014, Rob Arntfield blew our minds with his point of care TEE talk.  He showed us why and how we could and should be doing point of care TEE.  Then we all practiced on simulators.  It was a phenomenal experience, and he’s agreed to come back in 2015 and do it all again.  So if you haven’t signed up, do that NOW!
However, we think this is too important to just teach to Castlefestians, so we want to #foamed it out to all of you.  The truth is, this isn’t the hardest thing in the world to do.  It sounds scarier than it really is.  If you can get your hands on a simulator to practice, you can totally learn this……probably more quickly than TTE.  That’s the experience of most people who do this.  The windows are really much easier.
We’ll be getting part 2 out to you very soon.  In the meantime if you want to read more, then pick up Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound that has a chapter on this written by the man himself, Robert T. Arntfield.  Or hangout with him as part of the Ultrasound Leadership Academy or come practice with him and us at Castlefest.

Cardiac valve assessment part 2 with @arntfield. GE Vscan dual probe machine update. #foamed

 What?!?!  Why is there a company mentioned in this episode!?!?  Have Mike and Matt sold out?  No, we take nothing from GE or any other company, but we’re excited about this new machine, and while we hesitated at first, we realized that this is important to our listeners and we decided to talk about it.
Now, for the education.  This is the second part of the valvular assessment talk done by Rob Arntfield at Castlefest last year.  He’s coming back this year and will be teaching valves again at Castlefest, so sign up now.  No reason to wait for some awesome education, though.  Learn now, start practicing, and then when you’re scanning with Arntfield at Castlefest then you’ll already know what you’re doing and can focus on the advanced stuff.  For now, let’s keep talking about the basics.
Lastly, the ebooks are free on itunes this weekend (Friday and Saturday 6/20-21).  We got another request from medical students for this weekend, and we find it impossible to say no.  You may as well take advantage.

Now, for the meat of the podcast.  You may have NEVER even thought about looking at cardiac valves.  Maybe you thought this was beyond your scope.  Well, it’s time to expand your scope and skills.  This is a basic lecture.  We’re not going to get crazy on you.  Just the basics.  Just the can’t miss diagnoses.  If you listen and still think valves aren’t for you……fine.  But give it a listen.  We think Robert T Arntfield will change your mind.
Also, we almost forgot……One Minute Ultrasound is NOW AVAILABLE on Android.  It’s free just like the iOS version.  One more thing.  Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound is free for a couple days.  Some medical students from UCI wanted to load up some iPads to use for teaching on a mission trip, so we made it free for them, but you all get to benefit as well.  Download quickly!
