Ultrasound in Cardiac Arrest

In this weeks podcast, Jacob talks about all things cardiac arrest ultrasound. He tackles 3 different topics starting with ID'ing reversible causes. Not all of the H's and T's are amenable to ultrasound diagnosis, but you can use ultrasound for: Tamponade, Tension PTX, Thromboses, Trauma and Hypovolemia. With procedures, ultrasound-guidance is key, but don't forget that an IO is much faster. Ultrasound-guided pulse checks maybe are a little controversial if you just read abstracts. Remember: ten seconds = ten seconds. The ultrasound does not prolong pulse checks, humans prolong pulse checks. Enjoy!

Is Tamponade a Clinical Diagnosis?

In this episode, I demonstrate a case of early tamponade in which only right atrial diastolic collapse is visualized (rather than the oft-quoted right ventricular diastolic collapse), as well as review the literature on the sonographic findings.  I also suggest that maybe tamponade should be considered more of a sonographic diagnosis rather than a clinical diagnosis.  Check it out for more info! On a side note, Terren Trott, Ben Smith and I are going to be putting together a new live and online ultrasound course March 15-16th! We’re going to spend the first day talking about content creation and the second day talking about how to run an ultrasound division. The content creation course will cover how to create online presentations, how to use microblogging platforms (such as twitter and instagram) and how to give in-person presentations. The ultrasound management course will involve topics that will help you run a successful ultrasound program at your institution. With registration, you will be given access to the recorded lectures for 12 months after the course! Here's the link for more information: https://www.coreultrasound.com/cc_mgmt/

Cardiac Ultrasound with Claire Heslop, MD (From ULA)

The Ultrasound Leadership Academy is an online ultrasound fellowship that is designed to help clinicians learn bedside ultrasound if they hadn’t gotten the training during their residencies. I was honored to be asked to revamp their curriculum as well as being on their board last year. This lecture is a recording of a live lecture that Dr. Claire Heslop gave last month on cardiac ultrasound. After the lecture myself and few of the other ULA professors have a bit of a question and answer session as well.  On a side note, Terren Trott, Ben Smith and I are going to be putting together a new live and online ultrasound course March 15-16th!

Soft Tissue Ultrasound

I recently realized that I don’t really have that much soft tissue content on the website or podcast and decided I needed to do something about that. The basic differentiation between cellulitis and abscess is unlikely to save a life as speedily as identifying cardiac tamponade will, but it is still vitally important. Skin infections are very common, and choosing the appropriate treatment strategy for them is of utmost importance. What WILL save a life is differentiating between a necrotizing soft tissue infection and cellulitis, which I also delve into in this talk. This vodcast was recording during our residency didactics.

COVID-19 Ultrasound Case with Rob Farrow, Graham Bailey and Arun Nagdev

Bedside Scanning Tips with Claire Heslop, MD

This week I get the pleasure of sitting down (virtually) with Dr. Claire Heslop, a phenomenal educator and Emergency Physician in Toronto, Canada. We chat about a few of our choicest machine/patient/sonographer optimization tips.  Check out the top pearls below: Make sure you have the right probe and have the ultrasound machine in the best setting for that specific exam. Optimize depth Optimize gain Optimize your angle of insonance (angle of the beam relative to the structure you’re scanning.  The sound beam should be perpendicular to the thing you’re looking at) Patient optimization – Position the patient Remove leads/stickers Clean up gel Keep your patient informed on what you’re seeing (also, ask them if they want to be informed on what you’re seeing) Think about ergonomics for the ultrasonographer – Drop the bed rails Lower/raise patient bed Place the ultrasound machine in your line of sight. In other news, we’ve decided to cancel in-person Castlefest this year (2020).  We had postponed it from May 2020 to November 2020 in hopes that the pandemic would be less prominent by then.  Since this likely won’t be the case, we feel that moving the conference to a virtual platform is the right thing to do. We’re still working out details on exactly how we’re going to do this, but we do know we will offer it November 9-10th 2020 and the URL for updates will be https://www.castlefest2020.com.

Congenital Heart Abnormalities and POCUS with Russ Horowitz

Pediatric patients with suspicion of congenital heart abnormalities can be very intimidating! In this week's podcast Jacob speaks with one of our pediatric POCUS experts regarding congenital heart abnormalities and how the average provider might be able to evaluate them.  Your point-of-care exam should never replace a cardiology-performed echo, but your exam can definitely help you in your work-up.  Here are Russ's tips: Hypoplastic left heart - Look for a small left ventricle Coarctation of the aorta - Look at the pulsed-wave Doppler waveform of the abdominal aorta Heart failure - Look at the lungs

This week, Russ Horowitz (PEM physician extraordinaire) talks to us about his approach to the diagnosis of pediatric pneumonia with ultrasound.  We talk about how ultrasound compares to the physical exam, how to use this to help include the parents in the care of their children, how to actually perform the exam, and how to use your ultrasound even if the culture in your hospital is to get XR. Here are the references Russ is referring to in the podcast: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28835381 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29931473 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25780071 Learn live: Bendfest20.com and CastleFest2020.com Looking for an extended fellowship?

Let’s talk M-mode

M-mode (Motion Mode) is another way the ultrasound machine interprets the sonographic data it receives.  There are multiple applications of M-mode, but one application we should definitely NOT use M-mode is in the evaluation of IVC collapse Check out the podcast for more info!

A new (and possibly the best) marker for submissive and massive PE?

Recently, Dr. Ben Smith showed me this article, entitled “A Doppler Echocardiographic Pulmonary Flow Marker of Massive or Submassive Acute Pulmonary Embolus”.  It talks some pretty interesting stuff, including showing us a finding that apparently, might be better than all the other echocardiographic findings we have for ruling in and ruling out submissive and massive PE.  It’s called Early Systolic Notching, and it outperformed McConnell’s, the 60/60 sign, and acceleration/deceleration times.  Check out the graphic (produced by Ben Smith) and the podcast, which was cross posted on the Ultrasound GEL podcast earlier this week.  Registration for Castlefest 2020, our ultrasound conference in Lexington Ky, IS LIVE! Click here to learn more!

Appendicitis ultrasound follow up case from The Great White North. Cool stuff! #FOAMED

Last episode we revisited appendicitis ultrasound.  Let’s continue that visit.  What better way to keep visiting than with a case, right?   Luckily, Dave Kirschner….the Canadian, has an awesome case to share with us.  Dave is a brilliant ultrasound guru from up north who we met through The Ultrasound Leadership Academy, and now he teaches with us as much as we can convince him to.

Ultrasound for fluids in sepsis simplified…kind of…ok, not really.

Last week we showed you how to be 22% more accurate in diagnosing Sepsis in 10 minutes based on this study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27236328   NOW, you’re not done!  You’re treating the source, but you also have to manage their fluid status.  Well, we figured since we’ve only done 87 episodes on fluid responsiveness we needed one more.  Seriously, sometimes it requires explaining in a few different ways to really get a complicated subject like that.  Let us explain……..
