Intussusception is a common cause of pediatric abdominal pain in the infant and toddler population. Using point-of-care ultrasound at the bedside can help providers expedite definitive management with greater safety, ease and accuracy than plain radiographs; that’s why POCUS has become a standard tool for evaluating patients with suspected ileocolic intussusception.
Watch on-demand subject-expert webinars that describe point-of-care ultrasound best practices, techniques, and common scanning pitfalls.

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.

Dr. Robert Arntfield is an Assistant Professor, Director of Critical Care Ultrasound / Division of Critical Care & Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Medicine, Western University London, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Arntfield presents Point-of-Care Echocardiography – Part 1. Upon viewing this webinar in its entirety, viewers will begin developing a cognitive framework for acquiring, interpreting and integrating images related to the assessment of: gross left ventricular systolic function, gross right ventricular size and function, pericardial effusion, and IVC and volume status.
Diagnostic imaging for appendicitis is evolving and may include a point-of-care ultrasound assessment. This is especially important for the sensitive pediatric population. Pediatric ultrasound imaging requires smaller transducer footprints and adjustable frequencies to adapt to various depths and patient sizes. This live webinar will share expert techniques for performing a bedside pediatric ultrasound exam through a presentation of actual cases. After reviewing relevant literature, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss pediatric appendicitis as it pertains to POCUS with Dr. Levine.
Dr. Pierre Kory is Chief, Critical Care Service at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, and Faculty at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison WI. This webinar will review of the need for prompt diagnosis of lower extremity thromboembolic disease in the Acute Care environment (incidence/prevalence). Detailed explanation of the proximal femoral, venous anatomy; popliteal vein and the technique for performing the ultrasound examination will be explored. Additionally, Dr.
