Ultrasound in Trauma and Critical Care - Supported by ImaCor - Podcast #97
Ultrasound (U/S) has been described as the "stethoscope of the 21st century." Guests Charity Evans, MD and Benjie Christie, MD, discuss how they have incorprorated U/S in their management of critical patients -- including evaluation of the pleural space, cardiac ultrasound, and indwelling TEE probes to provide instantaneous feedback on the effectiveness of interventions. We also discuss credentialing for U/S privileges, curricula for trainees, and the utilization of U/S in the trauma PI process.
