Endomyometrial Thickness Measurement for Interstitial Ectopic Pregnancy with @ultrasoundREL.  #FOAMED

Wow, that is a mouth full.  Luckily, we have Resa Lewiss, the current chair of the ACEP ultrasound section, to go over this with us.  It came to our attention based on an article that Resa was the lead author on, and to be honest we didn’t know what to do with it.  So we decided we better figure that out.

Also, at the very bottom of this are some show notes for you that you can refer to while listening or afterwards…..whatever floats your boat (does anyone know what that means?).

Discussed on this podcast:

Dr Resa Lewiss tells us about interstitial ectopics and how to measure the myometrial mantle to help diagnose this rare disease.

Interstitial ectopics – higher risk for morbidity and mortality but rare.

Risk of interstitial ectopic in 2-4% of all ectopics.

Risk of ectopics 2% of all pregnancies, but  6-16%% of all 1st trimester pregnancies presenting to the emergency department.

Thus risk of interstitial ectopic ~2-3/500 1st trimester pregnancy patients (ish) no prospective studies – so who knows!

<5mm myometrial mantle – call somebody
5-8mm grey area – maybe call somebody – patient specific
>8mm – no worries playa

1st trimester pregnancy ultrasound part 2: ectopic & other topics #FOAMED

Alright, so hopefully you didn’t have any worrisome pregnant patients come in between last week when we left you hanging until now.  If so, call them back after you watch this.  Hopefully this will clear things up and give you the info you need to deliver the care they deserve.
Before you hit play, though, we need to give you some quick conference updates.

Castlefest is SOLD OUT.

You can sign up for the waiting list on the website.

Yellowstone we still have spots for.  This is a 4-day course in Jackson Hole, WY.  Amazing place!  Ran in conjunction with The Airway course by Rich Levitan.

Register now.

Norway – Remember the course on a cruise ship under the northern lights?  Time is RUNNING OUT!  Registration deadline is 12/5…..if the spots last that long.

Register now.

Pregnancy Ultrasound part 1. #foamed Back to back to basics….and Cabo update

You probably remember us starting a “back to the basics” series about 9 months ago.  We did pretty good for 5-6 episodes…..but then our attention span got the best of us and we started doing crazy advanced stuff again.  Sorry.

So, we wanted to get back to some basics and cover some super fundamental topics that we’ve never talked about here on the podcast.  One of those:  1st trimester pregnancy.  We have a trio of episodes coming at you, starting with the basics and then ending with some advanced, more controversial stuff.
Also, as you’ll see here in the episode, the Cabo Course, just got WAY better. We’re now going to be teaching hands on ultrasound and there will be hands on airway teaching with Levitan, Weingart, Sloas, and Rob Orman. It’s gonna be awesome.  Check it out at www.cabocme.com.

Appendicitis ultrasound part 2 with @mud5hark & @chrismuhr

Appendicitis
In the last podcast we went over some literature and had a jolly ole time discussing appendicitis ultrasound in general.  Doesn’t do you much good, though, if you we don’t show you how, right?  So, let’s remedy that.
In this episode we’ll show you how we do it, and then we’ll get a true expert to demonstrate.  We’ve done a lot of these, but not nearly as many as Jesper Danielson.  We met Jesper at Sonosweden last year, and we were blown away by his bowel ultrasound skills.  So we’ve convinced him to share those skills with you.  You’re welcome.
Speaking of Sonosweden, remember, we’re all doing it (and by “it” we mean learning ultrasound in a Japanese Spa) again.  And if you want to join us in Norway right afterwards for a cruise up the Norwegian coastline under the Northern Lights to learn some advance ultrasound, we’ll be there as well.

Appendicitis Remix: Part 1.  #foamed. Ultrasound in a spa & on a cruise!

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 4.39.38 PM
I’m sure you don’t remember, but our first episode ever was on ultrasound for appendicitis.  But that was a long time ago…..like 3 years.  So it’s time to revisit.  There’s new data, and there’s room for improvement.  In this episode we do something a little different than normal.  Instead of giving you a “great save” story, we’re gonna talk about how it can go wrong.  What we don’t want to do is scare you away from doing this exam.  However, it’s important to inject some humility occasionally, especially when we’re talking about an advanced scan.  This can be screwed up if you don’t know exactly how to perform it and exactly how to apply it clinically to your patient.
We’re also SUPER excited to tell you about Sonosweden and Sononorway.  Now last year, Sonosweden was sold out within about a week of talking about it on the podcast, so a lot of people missed out.  Don’t miss out this year.  It’s bigger and better, and if ultrasounding in a Japanese Spa while wearing a robe isn’t enough for you, we’re moving the whole party to a cruise ship in Norway after the Spa course ends this year.  Listen to the podcast for more info.
Lastly, we’ll be bringing you more of the exact “how to” part very soon.  Stay tuned.
Last reminder:  If you haven’t commented on or rated the podcast, please do, but only if it’s positive and you can give us 5 stars.  Email us if you can’t give us a 5 and we’ll try to do better.  It takes you <60sec and REALLY helps us.  DO IT NOW.
Thanks!
