Ultrasound of Valves Part 1 with @arntfield, ultrasound in Brazil with @developingem, and Castlefest update…..action packed! #foamed

OK, lots of stuff packed into this episode.  A couple quick updates.  First off, if you want to learn ultrasound with us in September in Brazil, then go to www.developingem.com and register for this amazing course.
As for Castlefest, we didn’t tell you yet who was going to be there, but it’s all set now.  How does this sound:
  • Weingart
  • Mallemat
  • Stone
  • Noble
  • Arntfield
  • Laleh
  • Sloas
  • Muhr
  • Goodman
  • Jean-Francois
  • Maxime
  • and others!!

Ridiculous lineup!  Go register now at www.castlefest2015.com.

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!

Multi-Organ US for PE. Castlefest 2015 registration open…..last year EVER! #FOAMED

We’ve been watching, and you all order a lot of CTs for PE.  If the patient needs a CTA fine……but maybe they don’t need it as often as you think.  There may be a better way.  We’ve got some hot new evidence for you that could be huge for your patients who may have a PE.  Now it requires being a doctor, doing some thinking, and obviously using sound waves, but we know you.  This is right up your alley.  So listen in, read up, and then give it a shot.
Also, it’s only been a couple months since Castlefest, but the castle is for sale (seriously), and it looks like this will be the last year for Castlefest.  So we’re opening it up early.  We’re slashing the number of registrants we’re taking this year as we really want to control it and make it an unbelievable educational experience this last time.  We’re getting it out to you early because it’s the podcast listeners who we really want there.  We’ll announce the instructors later, but if you’ve been before, then you can probably guess who will be there.

Social Media and Medical Education. #FOAMED talk from #ACEP13 Part 2

Screen Shot 2014-05-22 at 10.30.10 AM
Last week, we released part 1 of the ACEP social media talk.  This, as you may have guessed from the title at the top, is part 2.
Give us your feedback.  Email matt@ultrasoundpodcast.com.  We’re giving this talk again at ACEP, and we want your feedback so it can be better.
In this episode we address the money part a bit.  Why free?  I mean, seriously, free?  What’s in for me?  Well, we’ll talk about this.  We think FOAMED is a win, win, win, win.
Also, we swear we’ll be back on the ultrasound stuff in a couple weeks.  Currently working on an Ultrasound in PE podcast.  There’s some hot new literature with some impressive numbers.  We’ll go over it and hopefully teach you some stuff very soon.  Stay tuned!

Social Media and Medical Education. #FOAMED talk from #ACEP13. Part 1

If you were at ACEP 2013 and you heard me (Matt) give this talk, then maybe you can skip this.  It’s not really an ultrasound talk after all.  This is about #FOAMED.  Social Media in Medical Education.  Mike and I both are big believers in FOAMED, Free Open Access Medical Education, and I was asked to talk about social media at ACEP.  So we wanted to put this out there for everyone on the podcast with some comments from Mike.

Another reason we wanted to push this out was to get feedback.  I’ve been asked to give this talk at ACEP again in 2014, and I’d love to hear your comments.  A lot has changed in a year, so let me know what you think can be cut, what needs to be added, and so forth.  This is part 1, but we’ll be releasing part 2 in about a week.  Then we promise…..BACK TO ULTRASOUND.

In the meantime…..
