TAP Block with @bedsidesono.  Also….AtlantisCME with @emcrit, @criticalcarenow, @EMswami, @emergencypdx, Sloas & others

You’re just now coming down from your nerve block high off of SCP and Tibial block goodness, but we’ve got another for you!  It’s a block that isn’t super common, but it’s got some really nice potential in the right patient.

Obviously we’ve got the nerve block man, Mike Stone, on to talk about this one.  Who else would, right?!?  At the end stay tuned to hear a special announcement about an incredible course with Scott Weingart, Haney Mallemat, Rich Levitan, Andy Sloas, Anand Swaminathan, and Rob Orman.
And see you next time when we talk about DVT ultrasound and whether what we’ve been teaching for several years is total crap……

Superficial Cervical Plexus Block with @bedsidesono.  Trust us, this is really awesome…#FOAMED

What do you mean you don’t know how to do the superficial cervical plexus block?!?!  Yeah, neither did we until a little over a year ago when Mike Stone showed us.  Then we realized how useful it is……and we were ashamed.  We were ashamed we weren’t using it more often.

Clavicle fracture, IJ placement, ear lacerations!  The SCP block is super helpful in all these situations.  So let’s learn together.  We don’t consider ourselves masters of this block yet so we got The Nerve Block Master, Mike Stone on the podcast to go over this in more detail.  We’re going to use an Ultrasound Leadership Academy video to show you how to do this, and then we’ll ask Stone all the questions you have about this block.  If we don’t, tweet to us and him, and we’ll get your questions answered.
Next podcast……DVT ultrasound.  Is 2 point compression really good enough?  Some recent evidence says maybe not.   Let’s discuss!

The Future of Ultrasound from SMACC 2014.  #FOAMED

Another re-run?!?  Well, probably not.

Unless you were at SMACC last year in Australia, then you haven’t heard this.  Hot, new stuff from Mike on the future of ultrasound.  In this talk he talks about some advanced echo stuff that right now only the Top Guns are doing, but we all may be doing this in the future.  Also, some clinical integration pearls on how we really use ultrasound at the bedside.
Just as a disclaimer, there’s not a lot of actual technique/logistics teaching in this one, but we’re gonna make up for that.  Next podcast coming up is all about logistics.  We’ve got Mike Stone talking about the superficial cervical plexus block, which is a SUPER useful block that is way underutilized.  You won’t want to miss that.  In the meantime…..

In this episode

2:05 – The sexiness of ultrasound
2:59 – Case
5:55 – Aortic stenosis?
6:40 – Manure truck incident
8:28 – TEE

If you kicked yourself for missing Sonowars from SMACC 2014 then you’re in luck.  The amazing James Rippey and Adrian Goudie competed against yours truly, Matt & Mike.  It was part education, part competition, full on silly.  This is somewhat longer than our normal podcasts……but it’s a TON of fun!
