Transvenous pacer placement with @edecmo via @criticalcarenow from Resusfest.  #FOAMED

You need to know this skill…..and you need to learn it from Joe Bellezo!  It’s gonna save your patients life, and Joe is the man to teach you.  This was from Resusfest last year, but it’s just too good to keep confined to the walls of the castle.  If you want to come hang with us in the castle next year then register for CastlefestResusfest, or both.  If not, that’s cool……enjoy the free education anyway.
We’ll see you back on the 2017 flip side with some hot new ultrasound education.  Happy New Year!

Ultrasound for Deep and Superficial vein clots part 1.  Calf Clots?!?!  #FOAMED

Calf Clots?!?!  Is there anything more exciting than calf clots?  Oh yeah……everything.  Well, the thing is,  we’re actually treating these now.  So, we probably should talk more about it.  So here we go……

Yo, we also want to mention a new awesome project you may be interested in:

The POCUS (point-of-care ultrasound) ATLAS collaboration project is looking for help from the ultrasound community. Using crowd sourcing and image sharing, our goal is to highlight the use of ultrasound around the world, focusing on rare, exotic and perfectly captured images, including not only awesome pathology but also novel uses of bedside ultrasound. Our project will ultimately result in production of The POCUS ATLAS, a free peer-reviewed e-book, that will be available to be shared and used for global ultrasound education. We will also be building an online, searchable archive to allow for easy image sharing. 

Submitting an image to THE POCUS ATLAS is easy, simply find a noteworthy image, write a caption and submit. An explanation of the submission process can be found at our website, thepocusatlas.com, by clicking on the contribute tab. Our team is looking forward to seeing the incredible images that the online ultrasound community has to offer! We will keep the community updated through our blog, email newsletter, and twitter feed, so be sure to sign up or follow us on twitter (@thepocusatlas)! 

Sincerely,

THE POCUS ATLAS TEAM

Mike, Matt, Casey & Jacob

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.
