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.

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?

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!

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:

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

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

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

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

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/

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.

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. Wanna learn more about how not to kill you patients: Come to CaboFest Wanna learn how to joust with a linear probe: Come to Castlefest2018

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.

Castlefest 2017 was amazing!  Incredible ultrasound education, bourbon distillery dinners, parties at the castle, and getting to hang out with incredible sononerds is an experience you need to have if you haven’t.  It’s not fair that all the great education stays in the castle, though.  So, we want to share some pro tips with you from the course.  Enjoy! Also………next year’s registration is open, but we’re cutting the registration numbers in half to make it a smaller event so we can actually get to know everyone.  We feel like it’s gotten too big.  Obviously, this means that it will sell out much more quickly.  Sorry.  Don’t miss out.  Go to www.castlefest2018.com to register now.

Rib fractures, axillary abscesses, and chest tubes are pathologies that are traditionally pretty difficult to provide adequate pain control. You cooouuulllldddd just give them so much narcotics they stop breathing, or you can knock out the pain at the source.

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)!  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

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.

Well, we’ve learned our lesson about locking our door when Haney is town.  Apparently he’s broken into our home/studio and recorded this podcast on running a better code.  There’s literally NOTHING in this video about ultrasound……but we’re letting it slide.  It’s an incredible talk by Zach Shinar from Resusfest last year, and it may just save some lives if you listen to it and put it into practice. Stay tuned for some new awesome ultrasound stuff coming up in the near future.  In the meantime, go to www.castlefest2017.com to register for Castlefest or Resusfest.

Oh, so close!  You see what looks like a gestational sac, and you feel like you can kind of imagine a yolk sac, but you just can’t make out that yolk sac. So, I guess it’s time for a transvaginal ultrasound, right?  Wrong!  Well, maybe.  You’ll probably need a transvaginal ultrasound, but not in everyone.  Before you pull that trigger, take a look transabdominally with the linear probe and you can avoid the transvaginal ultrasound in about 1/3rd of those cases.

Thanks to Scott Weingart we recently discovered a really cool website at gastricultrasound.org.  So, naturally we wanted to interview the creators of the website, figure out if this is something useful to us…….and then make fools of ourselves by eating and drinking lots of random things and looking at it on ultrasound. Luckily for you……we recorded it. Enjoy!

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.

Merry Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for this year?  Personally, we’re thankful that we got to make total idiots of ourselves with some of our best friends during Sonowars at SMACC last year.  We’re even MORE thankful that someone captured it on video so we could share with you. Mechanical bulls, body paint, balloon testicles……it’s not all idiocracy, though.  The main goal of Sonowars is always to educate……but we definitely have some fun along the way.  Enjoy!
