Davinder Ramsingh, MD, Director of Perioperative Ultrasound and Clinical Research, Department of Anesthesiology at Loma Linda Medical Center will discuss perioperative point-of-care ultrasound with a focus on airway management, and how point-of-care ultrasound can help facilitate the identification and localization of the endotracheal tube within the trachea. He will review background information on endotracheal intubation, define point-of-care ultrasound, and relate this information to case studies. He will also discuss the FORESIGHT examination.
The new definition of sepsis (aka "Sepsis 3.0") as well as Center for Medicare Services sepsis bundle have been unveiled. Dr. Alan Chiem from Olive View-UCLA Medical Center will use clinical vignettes to discuss the new definition of sepsis, the proposed methods to assess fluid responsiveness, and how ultrasound may be used in the management of these patients. Dr. Chiem will specifically focus on the nuts and bolts of performing these ultrasound-based techniques, as well as how to perform a passive leg raise. Webinar Goals and Objectives: 1.
Dr. Stephen Haskins presents the emerging role of focused cardiac ultrasound as a powerful tool for the anesthesiologist in the perioperative setting. He discusses how point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) changes the way patients should be evaluated, and how medical decisions are made. He highlights ultrasound as a change agent for the future of the physical exam, and explains how technology has the ability to rapidly bridge the education and experience gap in medicine. Dr.
