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.
Watch on-demand subject-expert webinars that describe point-of-care ultrasound best practices, techniques, and common scanning pitfalls.
All webinars are in English.

Neuropathic pain can be caused by a number of factors including nerve entrapment and nerve compression from injury, bone spurs, tendinitis, and surgery. Ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve hydrodissection may be performed to alleviate pain from peripheral nerve entrapments and neuropathic pain in general. Join Dr. Francois Louw as he reviews this safe and effective procedure and discusses various case examples.
Join Adrienne Barrett, RN, as she provides an overview of how to perform an ultrasound-guided cannulation in the hemodialysis unit including identifying anatomy on the ultrasound screen, overcoming potential barriers to adopting this skill set, and how to add ultrasound to the “tool box” used by hemodialysis nurses.
There is a need to help clinicians reduce device-related peripheral IV catheter insertion failures and improve success rates. This webinar will provide an overview regarding the use of ultrasound-guidance for patients with difficult venous access. Join Timothy Spencer, RN, for a detailed review of current clinical evidence, recommendations, and strategies regarding the use of ultrasound-guided peripheral IV catheter insertions.
Join Benjamin DuBois, MD for a discussion on correlating ultrasound findings of the supraspinatus with interoperative findings. Dr. DuBois will present an overview of this procedure, review a case study, and demonstrate live scanning in order to portray this innovative use of point of care ultrasound. He will review normal and abnormal anatomy and discuss when ultrasound-guided injections of the shoulder are necessary.
Join Theresa Bowling, MD for a discussion of the indications and techniques for ESP blocks with an emphasis on their use for post op pain management after spinal fusion surgery. The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Protocol for spinal fusion surgery that was developed at Dr. Bowling’s institution, and the subsequent research they have published on decreased opioid consumption, will be presented and discussed.
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.
