Ultrasound for late pregnancy with @broomedocs…..bonus ultrasound onesies.  #FOAMED.

Yes, we’ve neglected late pregnancy ultrasound.  Yes, Casey Parker is an extremely sexy man that we should have on the podcast.  Lucky for you, we’re taking care of both of those grievances at once TODAY!

If you were at SMACC (in Dublin next year!) and saw the brilliant “Imagine” ending to Sonowars then you know who Casey is.  If not, go check out the Broomedocs blog for some awesome content from Dr. Parker.  More on the “Imagine” thing next episode when we interview Casey about this stuff.  For now, enjoy the #FOAMED.
Oh yeah, if you haven’t signed up for Castlefest, it’s about half full.  You better quit procrastinating or you’ll get screwed like you did last year when you waited too late.  Hope to see you there!

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!
