Ultrasound for HIV/TB: FASH cases part Deux & Learn in South Africa Opportunity.  #FOAMED

Here It Is

The long awaited sequel to the previous FASH episode where we told you about a pretty incredible case and gave an example of how to actually use the FASH exam.  In this episode we’ll talk to Gabin about another case and continue to review the literature.
Why am I still typing…..just watch the episode.

Ultrasound for HIV and TB: FASH Exam. Also, BIG news about Castlefest. #FOAMED

Ultrasound for what?!?!  That’s right, HIV and TB. 
Of course, you already knew that.  You saw the FASH exam episode with Hein Lamprecht about a year ago.  If not, go listen to it now.  If you did, and you were the least bit interested, then you’re going to love this.  We’ve got Gabin Mbanjumucyo, one of our Ultrasound Leadership Academy fellows on the podcast telling about actual patients where this exam was super useful.  He’ll tell you how to use this if you practice in a resource limited environment or ever plan to.  It’s fascinating stuff!
Oh yeah, about Castlefest……it’s happening again!  We thought it was over, but we’re super pumped it’s not.  Listen in for details and go to www.castlefest2016.com to register.  Remember, spots only lasted for a couple months last year.  Don’t wait and miss out.

DVT Ultrasound demonstration with @bedsidesono.  The whole upper leg approach.  #FOAMED

OK, 2 points not quite good enough.  How much better is the whole upper let approach?  Not sure.  But it’s probably better.  So, here’s how to do it.  We’re gonna discuss a little more, then we’ll actually do this thing.
@ultrasoundmd, Jacob Avila, was kind of enough to loan us his leg so we can demonstrate.  We use some really sweet technology, the Epiphan DVI video grabber, which we’re now using with the Ultrasound Leadership Academy to demonstrate remotely.  I’m in a hotel in West Virginia with Jacob (don’t ask), and Stone is in Boston.  We think it’s a sweet setup that allows us pretty cool remote education capabilities.

DVT Ultrasound Controversy! @bedsidesono discusses why 2 point compression not good enough #foamed

You know the drill.  Patient with leg pain…..possible DVT.  Scan it yourself.  You’ve done the scan.  You know the 10-minute teaching article showing that the two point compression scan is enough.  But is it?  There have been articles that show we miss a significant proportion when we only scan these two points or regions, and now we’ve got a big ED study showing this.  Is it OK to miss 6% of DVTs?  Let’s discuss.
Next episode, we’ll demonstrate exactly our approach and then talk about some crazy stuff like PW, augmentation, etc.  Stay Tuned!

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……
