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.
Alexis LaPietra, D.O. presents novel medications and modalities for the management of acute pain in the emergency department. She discusses ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and its importance in managing the pain associated with fractures and dislocations. Additionally, she presents evidence to support the use of trigger point injections and a multi-modal analgesic approach for musculoskeletal pain.
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.
Gregory V. Hickman, MD, Medical Director and Anesthesia Director from the Andrews Institute, ASC discusses the "Hickman Flip" approach for interscalene catheter placement, and the benefits and his success with this approach. Dr. Hickman also lists the indications for using interscalene block and catheters and explains how to use point-of-care ultrasound to identify anatomy and assist with the procedure.
Stephen Leech, MD, RDMS, Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Director, Orlando Regional Medical Center, Orlando, FL - Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) has emerged as a valuable tool in the hands of skilled operators; especially in acute care and life saving environments. This webinar will review a variety of scenarios and case studies where the availability of POCUS proved invaluable in the diagnosis and management toward positive patient outcomes.
Jason Bowman, M.D. discusses lung ultrasound and how it can help pre-hospital care providers take better care of their patients. Dr. Bowman reviews clinical indications for lung ultrasound in EMS, describes the benefits of ultrasound of the lung versus other modalities, and demonstrates a lung ultrasound using the Sonosite iViz.
Proper training and use of ultrasound in EMS could revolutionize patient care, making our procedures safer and our diagnosis more accurate, all while decreasing the time to definitive treatment at the hospital. In this webinar, we will discuss the origins, merits, and future of ultrasound in EMS and how it could be realistically implemented to improve the care of your patients in the field.
