Description

Making horrible doctors decent and good doctors GREAT at Ultrasound

Episode Date
RUSH exam update with it’s Inventor: Scott Weingart
The RUSH exam has been around for at least 13 years, and it’s time for a review from one of the innovators who first coined the phrase “Rapid Ultrasound in Shock and Hypotension”.  Scott has the perspective of a resuscitationist who uses ultrasound, and needs this exam to be as efficient as possible. Listen to the podcast to hear his thoughts. Caution: If you’re listening with children, this episode has a bit of strong language. *A couple of clarifications: During the podcast I mentioned that I’ve done a bunch of research on DVT. I’ve done absolutely no clinical or laboratory research on DVT’s, but I’ve definitely read a bunch of articles. Also, during the podcast I mentioned a systematic review/meta-analysis that shows that when a DVT is found in a patient in whom there is suspicion of PE, the +LR was 16.2.  Here’s the pubmed ID: 16052017).  Also, if you’re unfamiliar of the LLS score, check out this link.

Why We Shouldn’t Call Our Ultrasound “Informal”
What we do matters.  Our bedside ultrasound often changes management and saves lives. So why are we calling our scans “informal”? We might not always say that outright, but I frequently hear our residents and staff call a radiology or cardiology performed ultrasound a “formal” scan, implying that what we do is informal.  I have nothing but respect for the vast knowledge and experience that our consultant colleagues bring to the table, but what we do is also “formal”, albeit its usually a limited exam compared to the comprehensive scans they do. While pondering on this, I decided that I might be able to convince people that what I do at the bedside is formal….by performing ultrasounds whilst wearing the most formal attire I could buy off of Amazon.  I was fortunate enough to be joined by Nik Theyyunni, Rob Huang and Creagh Boulger at GLUC (Great Lakes Ultrasound Consortium) a few months ago in Cincinnati, and they were nice enough to sit down with me and record our thoughts. You can definitely hear the audio podcast, but make sure to check out the Youtube page to see us in our whole get-up.  Interested in an online ultrasound fellowship?

Should We Use Tegaderms for Ultrasound-Guided IV’s?
Over the past year there has been a small bit of controversy regarding the best way to make sure that we aren’t causing iatrogenic infections when placing ultrasound-guided IV’s. To be honest, I took it for granted that tegaderms should be used when we do this potentially life-saving procedure.  Recent posts from ALiEM and EMRAP made me question the utility of these adhesive barriers.  After much research, it turns out that tegaderms are probably perfectly fine to use.  In this podcast, Dallas Holladay, Michael Gottlieb and I sit down to talk about our interpretation of the literature behind using tegaderms for ultrasound-guided IV’s.  Check it out!

RV enlargement in arrest, and how it’s not always a PE
While preparing for a recent grand rounds lecture, I uncovered something rather interesting: The fact that the RV can enlarge during cardiac arrest independently of the presence of a pulmonary embolism. It turns out that the data showing RV enlargement as a marker of a pulmonary embolism is actually mostly extrapolated from alive patients (in which it has been shown to be a pretty good marker of submassive and massive PE).  There is very minimal data on RV enlargement in arrest in humans, but there are some animal studies that suggest that the RV enlarges in many causes of arrest, including hypoxia and arrhythmias.  Check out the podcast, and the summary of the literature on the PDF below:

Jacob sits down w/ @CreaghB & @SonoMojo to talk about #POCUS in shock and pregnancy
Day 2 of Bendfest 2019 is drifting further in the past, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relive it! In this interview summary, Jacob sits down with Creagh Boulger and Jenn Cotton and they talk about ultrasound in shock and pregnancy.  Here are the salient points:  Creagh Boulger (Ultrasound in Shock) Mnemonics can be helpful, but not every patient needs the same exam every time.   First step for Dr. Boulger: Is it the pump (cardiac contractility) and/or is it the pipes (Preload)? Other things can cause shock that aren’t in the typical hypotensive algorithm (Gallbladder, Soft tissue, etc) Jenn Cotton (Pregnancy) Don’t get tricked by the hCG! You can have ruptured ectopics at hCG = 0. Additionally, viable pregnancies with hCG levels above the “discriminatory zone” and not visualized on US can still be viable Our job is to RULE IN uterine pregnancies, not RULE OUT ectopics.  Fertility treatments increase risk of heterotopic ultrasounds Don’t be scared of performing a transvaginal ultrasound.  Day 3’s summary will be out soon!If you’re interested in an online ultrasound fellowship, check out www.ultrasoundleadershipacademy.com

Bendfest 2019 Day 1 Summary!
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...

Ultrasound Image Review pearls with Patrick Ockerse, MD.
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...

Lateral Water bath technique for evaluation of hand infections with Jenn Cotton!
We love talking about super advanced ultrasound applications, but its important to make sure we understand the basics.  Soft tissue ultrasound probably has a greater effect on patient dispositions and treatment than most of our other ultrasound applications due to the sheer volume of soft tissue infections we see.  I recently (virtually) sat down with Jenn Cotton and discussed a technique she developed with Mike Prats for evaluating hand infections.  If you need a review on how to evaluate soft tissue infections on ultrasound, check out the 5 Minute Sono abscess vs cellulitis 2019 update video and the 5 Minute Sono necrotizing soft tissue infection 2019 update and if you want to see a video on how to perform the technique we discuss with Jenn, check out our youtube page Interested in an online ultrasound fellowship?  Check out the Ultrasound Leadership Academy

Are you holding the probe correctly?
Sometimes we have to get back to our basics and just, make sure we’re holding the probe correctly.  This is especially relevant considering we all have new residents this month (It is July, after all!).  In this podcast, Cian McDermott sits down with Jacob to discuss his tips for how to hold the probe and how to position yourself to get your best images.  Jacob’s favorite tip? Don’t treat the probe like a dirty sock.  Check out the podcast to learn more! Interested in an online ultrasound fellowship?  Check out http://ultrasoundleadershipacademy.com/

Jacob sits down with Srikar Adhikari to talk about #ArtificialIntelligence and #POCUS.
Is Skynet around the corner? Remember Terminator? That was set in 2029, 10 years away.  Maybe that’s a little dramatic, but AI, artificial intelligence, is already present in daily medicine and we’re starting to see it in point of care ultrasound as well. In this episode Jacob sits down with Srikar Adhikari, man, myth, legend of POCUS and they wax extensionally about AI in point of care ultrasound. Education, feedback, accuracy, and the future of AI in POCUS. Join us and learn something instead of letting the computers learn it for you. Want to come scan with us in Bend, Oregon?

Day 4 #Castlefest19
The LAST DAY of Castlefest 2019 was a great one (as were all of the other days). Check out day 4’s summary: Jimmy Fair:  Diastology: Consider approaching diastology as binary; does your patient have elevated left atrial pressure or not? If you want a more in-depth summary, watch: Diastology part 1, Diastology part 2 Cardiac arrest: Concentrate on getting windows during your 10 second pulse check, save clips, then interpret the image during compressions. Unless if you have TEE.  Then just leave it in there and get continuous monitoring. RUSH: It’s not a law that you have to do every part of the RUSH exam in all your hypotensive patients. Peter Weimersheimer: Pelvic Ultrasound: If you can get the answer with transabdominal US, you don’t necessarily need to go for the endocavitary probe TEE: Why learn this if I get good TTE views during arrest?  Answer: Because you often can’t.  Also, some tips on how to start a TEE program. Here’s the Link to Annals of Emergency Medicine article on TEE and cardiac arrest (that Mike Mallin was second author on) Claire Heslop:  Volume responsiveness is defined as the ability of a patient to increase their cardiac output with fluids.  Best way to tell with US: VTI.  Although carotid flow time is an up-and-comer.

Don’t lolly-gag around with that ultrasound probe during the pulse check!
Why are you killing your patients with ultrasound? Ok, maybe you’re not killing them, but you might NOT be making things any better if you lolly-gag around with that ultrasound probe during the pulse check. How good are we at estimating 10 second pulse checks? How good are we at getting in and getting out with the probe during CPR pauses? Mallin and Mike Allison address this question and talk about Allison’s recent Resuscitation paper , it’s findings, and what it means for your next cardiac arrest patient.

Ultrasound in Codes!……again!  www.castlefest2018.com
Fine, let’s be honest here. We’ve talked about this before. A LOT! But that doesn’t make this talk any less important. In real practice most of your ultrasounds aren’t playing a role in the life and death of your patient. But in a CODE, every ultrasound matters and the stakes are always high. Thats why we just can’t get enough if this topic. In this podcast Jacob Avila talks with the residents at UK about how and why to ultrasound during ACLS, code, a cardiac arrest, a death plunge – if you will. Don’t miss this great talk, and keep you’re eye out for our next podcast when we interview Mike Allison on his new Resuscitation article on ultrasounds affect on CPR pauses during cardiac arrest.

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 Follow us:  @ultrasoundpod @ultrasoundmd Learn with us:  www.ultrasoundleadershipacademy.com Register:  Cabofest Ultrasound Course, Sonoscandinavia, Castlefest 2017, Yellowstone Ultrasound Course FREE Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound eBook: Volume 1 Volume 2 One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for iOS One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for Android

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.

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.

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.

Superficial Cervical Plexus Block with @bedsidesono.  Trust us, this is really awesome…#FOAMED
33:33
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! In this episode :27 – Ice slip 1:22 – Central line placing 3:00 – Here we go! 6:53 – Risks? 8:40 – Coverage 11:45 – Landmark techniques 15:18 – Depth & angles 17:26 – Ultrasound process 26:01 – 1 spot? 27:48 – the EMC Follow us:  @ultrasoundpod Learn with us:  www.ultrasoundleadershipacademy.com Register:  Yellowstone Course Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound: Volume 1 Volume 2 One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for iOS One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for Android

The Future of Ultrasound from SMACC 2014.  #FOAMED
19:46
Another re-run?!?  Well, probably not. Unless you were at SMACC last year in Australia, then you haven’t heard this.  Hot, new stuff from Mike on the future of ultrasound.  In this talk he talks about some advanced echo stuff that right now only the Top Guns are doing, but we all may be doing this in the future.  Also, some clinical integration pearls on how we really use ultrasound at the bedside. Just as a disclaimer, there’s not a lot of actual technique/logistics teaching in this one, but we’re gonna make up for that.  Next podcast coming up is all about logistics.  We’ve got Mike Stone talking about the superficial cervical plexus block, which is a SUPER useful block that is way underutilized.  You won’t want to miss that.  In the meantime….. In this episode 2:05 – The sexiness of ultrasound 2:59 – Case 5:55 – Aortic stenosis? 6:40 – Manure truck incident 8:28 – TEE 9:09 – Case 3 9:52- Passive leg raise 10:18 – Case 4 11:02 – Appendicitis? 12:10 – Keep it simple 12:57 – Case 5 18:41 – Wrap up Follow us:  @ultrasoundpod Learn with us:  www.ultrasoundleadershipacademy.com Register:  Yellowstone Course Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound: Volume 1 Volume 2 One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for iOS One Minute Ultrasound Smartphone App for Android

Pediatric Ultrasound from SMACC 2014.  #foamed

Yes, you’ve heard of SMACC by now.  In fact, you may have attended last year.  If you did go, and if you did hear this lecture, then nothing to see here.  New podcast in about a week.  If you didn’t go, though……then you better get there this year!  It’s a great conference, and registration is open. This podcast is about……well, why don’t you just listen.  The title kind of gives it away. Just as a reminder, the ebooks are completely free, but this is your last month ever to get the inkling.comversions.  The link is below.  It won’t be in the bookstore after 3/1/15.

US in massive PE case with @EM_ResUS.  Also, get free ebook on inkling while still available.  Limited time!!  #FOAMED
27:26
What a save last podcast by Sam Ghali!  They’re not all warm and fuzzy, though.  We make life and death decisions based on less than perfect information, and sometimes even the right decision doesn’t lead to a good outcome.  Will Dr. Ghali be as fortunate with this patient with the massive PE?  Let’s find out……. Also, we told you last time that the ebooks were free…..forever.  But then as soon as we released the episode we heard from inkling.com that they were removing all “non-enterprise” titles from the store.  This is after we invested significant resources to get it in the store and so many people spent so much energy creating the ebooks.  SO, download it now!!  It’s in the inkling.com store until March 1st.  You’ve got just over a month to get it from Inkling and tell everyone you know to get it.  After that your only option will be through iTunes, so you’ll only be able to consume on a Mac or iPad.  It’s completely free until it disappears.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Lastly, if you haven’t given the podcast a 5 star rating in iTunes it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for considering!

Echo Arrest Case with @EM_ResUS. Was WEE case by @emcrit….now rest of the story! #FOAMED
So, you’ve been running a code for 45 minutes and your patient keeps going in and out of Vfib and Vtach.  You’ve shocked them more times than you can count and you’ve thrown the kitchen sink at them medication wise.  What do you do?  What do you do?!?!  This can be an extremely frustrating case, because there seems to be no good answer. Check out the Emcrit Wee on this case. So let’s see how Sam Ghali handles this situation with his magic sound wave machine that shows him pictures of what that stubborn heart is doing.  Would looking at it give clues to what was wrong and maybe guide therapy?  Only one way to find out……click play below! Also, in this episode, we tell you that our ebooks are now free…..forever.  Spread the word.  They will never cost money again.  The only thing we’re asking for in return is your first born child……or if that’s too much, just give the podcast a 5 start rating and write a review in iTunes.  Actually, now that I think about it, we actually prefer that.  We’ve already got kids.

US guided injections with @ultrasoundninja, co-director of Sononorway.com.  #foamed
32:26
Guiding a needle inside the body with ultrasound is a critical skill. It makes a tremendous difference, but it’s not always the easiest thing.  It takes some practice, and it takes some time to master.  So that’s why we’ve got a true master to teach you.  Canh Le Nygaard is a GP in Norway and is the Chair of the Norwegian National GP Ultrasound society.  He does an incredible number of injections and has healed with sound more Norwegians than can be counted. So watch the podcast, go practice, and then watch again.  If you’re a novice, this is a ridiculously awesome video to start with.  If you’re already pretty experienced I’m sure you’ll still get something out of it.  It’s chocked full of great tidbits. If you want to come meet and learn from Canh in person join us in Norway.  Enjoy!!
