Happy Thanksgiving!

We’re thankful for a lot of things this year.  One of those things is all the incredible people out there doing incredible things when it comes to ultrasound education.  Not that long ago a group of students got together and put on a 3 day workshop for 139 other students with the help of incredible teachers like Christopher Muhr and Victoria Stephen.  The organizers are a group of 40 students led by Simon Orlob and David Purkarthorfer.
So, we wanted to help spread the word and share a video from the course.  Go to graz.sono4you.at to find out more.  Or go to the bottom of this for more info.
This was the keynote of our 3rd Summer School for Ultrasound.
With this type of one central lecture we are trying to show our participants the usefulness of bedside ultrasound.

The Summer School is a three and a half day long ultrasound course for undergraduate students, teaching ultrasound in a clinical context, from first contact with the method to actual bedside application on the last day of the course. While all lectures are given by experienced physicians the workshops are held by student peer-teachers.

While we can just provide 60 spots for students in Graz itself we were able to offer 79 students abroad a spot as well. Therefore all lectures were livestreamed with the option to interact with the speakers. At six other universities these lectures from Graz were screened while the hands-on sessions were organised locally. Even a group from Brazil participated in this course.

You can find background informations here: http://graz.sono4you.at/summer-school/hintergrund
There you can also find an instruction on how to participate in this course as a foreign student.
We would be more than happy to have more interaction with soon-enthusiastic students from all over the world. Please spread the word!

Regarding our group named “Sono4You Graz”.
We are a group of 40 students at the moment, offering other students an introduction into sonography in extracurricular peer-teaching courses. We do this in our spare time and nobody is getting paid for it.

These courses distinguish themselves by the following features:
• high practical component
• learning in a collegial atmosphere
• ratio of participants to instructors of 5:2
• balanced use of various medias, teaching aids and didactic methods

How to run a better code with @edecmo & @criticalcarenow.  #FOAMED.  #Haneyissosneaky!

Well, we’ve learned our lesson about locking our door when Haney is town.  Apparently he’s broken into our home/studio and recorded this podcast on running a better code.  There’s literally NOTHING in this video about ultrasound……but we’re letting it slide.  It’s an incredible talk by Zach Shinar from Resusfest last year, and it may just save some lives if you listen to it and put it into practice.
Stay tuned for some new awesome ultrasound stuff coming up in the near future.  In the meantime, go to www.castlefest2017.com to register for Castlefest or Resusfest.
Oh, yeah, we almost forgot to mention Sonoscandinavia!  We’re having an incredible course in Norway in February this year.  If interested, go to www.sonoscandinavia.com and register.

FASH ultrasound exam makes a difference in Canada…..seriously! #FOAMED

You’ve heard of the FASH ultrasound exam for HIV/TB, right?  No?!?!?  We’ll, go back to the archives and look it up HERE (part 1) and HERE (part 2).  Once you’ve watched those, THEN come back here and watch this.  We like to teach you new skills, but we also think it’s important and useful to show you cases where it makes a difference for real live patients.  This is that.  Enjoy!

Appendicitis ultrasound follow up case from The Great White North.  Cool stuff!  #FOAMED

Last episode we revisited appendicitis ultrasound.  Let’s continue that visit.  What better way to keep visiting than with a case, right?
Luckily, Dave Kirschner….the Canadian, has an awesome case to share with us.  Dave is a brilliant ultrasound guru from up north who we met through The Ultrasound Leadership Academy, and now he teaches with us as much as we can convince him to.  He’ll be at Castlefestand Yellowstone next year.  Come join him……and us!

Appendicitis ultrasound reboot with @ultrasoundmd!  Turns out, there’s been some updates.  #FOAMED

Yes, we’ve covered this…….but stuff changes, right?  The appendix is now on the left side, looks completely different, and………..ok, so it doesn’t change that much.  BUT, there’s some new literature, and we thought it was time to get another expert on and add some new flava to this topic.
So, here you go.  Enjoy.
