Bendfest 2019 Day 1 Summary!
Jul 22 2019
A few weeks ago we had a wonderful time in Bend, Oregon during Bendfest 2019. We got some mountain biking in, some hiking in, some river floating in and ate some great food! We wanted to share the choicest pearls from our phenomenal lecturers on some of the topics they covered. Check out the summary of day 1! Peter Weimersheimer (Cardiac): Find the beating thing first. Use lots of gel, and lot of pressure to get your view. Get your ultrasound beam parallel with the heart. Start your exam with your patient in the left lateral decubitus position. Do one maneuver at a time (rotate, fan, rock, etc). Start with the probe at the clavicle/sternal interface, slide down until you see the heart. You don’t always need all the 4 views of the heart. If ventricle is round, subtle hand rotations will fix. #1 point – Just use bedside echo. Ben Smith (Aorta, renal) If you think you see mild hydro, use color flow to differentiate between mild hydro and prominent renal vessels Scan from the back; the ribs are farther away from each other back there so may get better windows. We aren’t good at finding the actual ureteral stone, but were pretty good at hydro For getting past bowel gas when looking at the aorta – start up high where there is less gas (epigastric). Then when you come up on gas, use other hand to apply steady pressure (often 30-60 seconds). Use curvilinear probe, hurts less than the phased array. Transhepatic view of aorta – not bad for aneurysm, but not great for dissection We are good at looking at the aorta as long as we can actually see the aorta. Research that show great accuracy of bedside sonographic aorta exam only included studies where the aorta... Read More

Ultrasound Image Review pearls with Patrick Ockerse, MD.
Jul 17 2019
This week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Patrick Ockerse, MD at Bendfest 2019, a 3 day ultrasound event in Bend, Oregon. Dr. Ockerse is the ultrasound director at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah and part of his job is to review ultrasound images performed in his emergency department. Mike was formerly the ultrasound director in Utah and Jacob has a very similar job as the ultrasound director at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky. This week, we sit down and talk about the errors we most commonly see when performing our image review sessions. Here are some tips: Basics: Depth – Make sure that the image you’re trying to see is as big as you can make it. Don’t have any wasted space in your clips or images. Gain – Make sure your image is bright enough. But don’t over gain! Exam type – If you’re doing a FAST exam, don’t scan in the “lung” setting. Video clips – Be conscientious of the clips and images you take. Focus on the thing you want to record and record a long enough clip of it, but also don’t record multiple clips of subpar exams. Specific exams: DVT – Make sure that the vein you’re evaluating is actually a deep vein. Deep veins paired, while superficial veins may be solitary. Also, don’t confuse a lymph node for a DVT. FAST exam – Slow sweeps of the regions your evaluating. Fast sweeps can miss subtle fluid collections. Don’t forget to look at the inferior pole of the kidney/caudal tip of the liver interface on the right side. Be careful with the seminal vesicles in the pelvis. Intrauterine pregnancy (IUP) – Make sure that gestational sac is actually inside the uterus. Thorax – Make sure to... Read More

Ultrasound for Deep and Superficial vein clots part 1.  Calf Clots?!?!  #FOAMED
Dec 05 2016
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)!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Nov 24 2016
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.

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... Read More

R heart TAPSE talk from Cuba.  Also, announcing Resusfest with @criticalcarenow & @emcrit! #FOAMED
Dec 28 2015 22 mins  
And you thought the Summer of R Heart Failure was over……wrong! Well, actually it is over, but you all can’t seem to get enough. We’ve got a lot of feedback about how much people enjoyed all the R heart talk, so we’ve got a little more for you. We were in Havanna, Cuba recently with the DevelopingEM crew and we were lucky enough to catch up with James Daley who’s been doing some pretty sweet research on TAPSE. As luck would have it, we were also able to corral some other super echo experts, Brian Galovic, Patrick Ockerse, and Jimmy Fair to discuss just how useful TAPSE is and how not to screw it up. Also, we know you love learning ultrasound in a castle, so why not resuscitation as well! Our good friends Scott Weingart and Haney Mallemat are putting on Resusfest this year in conjunction with Castlefest and registration is open. Go to Castlefest2016.com to find our more and register. Basically it’s 2 days of incredible resuscitation education in a castle on 4/30-5/1. If you’ve already registered for Castlefest and want to add it on, then just email us. We’ll sort it out for you.

Superficial Cervical Plexus Block with @bedsidesono.  Trust us, this is really awesome…#FOAMED
Mar 13 2015 33 mins  
What do you mean you don’t know how to do the superficial cervical plexus block?!?! Yeah, neither did we until a little over a year ago when Mike Stone showed us. Then we realized how useful it is……and we were ashamed. We were ashamed we weren’t using it more often. Clavicle fracture, IJ placement, ear lacerations! The SCP block is super helpful in all these situations. So let’s learn together. We don’t consider ourselves masters of this block yet so we got The Nerve Block Master, Mike Stone on the podcast to go over this in more detail. We’re going to use an Ultrasound Leadership Academy video to show you how to do this, and then we’ll ask Stone all the questions you have about this block. If we don’t, tweet to us and him, and we’ll get your questions answered. Next podcast……DVT ultrasound. Is 2 point compression really good enough? Some recent evidence says maybe not. Let’s discuss!
