Ultrasound Guided Pericardiocentesis Microcast! #foamed Education Mainlined…..

OK, no funny, no cuteness, nothing.  Just straight echo guided procedural education.  We like to have fun and keep it light because we think that enhances your education and keeps you interested.  However, we’re talking about pericardiocentesis here.  Is there any procedure more “puckering” than sticking a needle in the pericardium of a crashing patient.  So just imagine yourself in that situation and ask yourself “Self, how prepared do I want to be for this?”, and then watch this episode.  (You can also watch the captioned version here: http://youtu.be/M4vHEr25yFk)
p.s. – If you appreciate the podcast, go on iTunes and give us a 5 star review and write something nice.  We REALLY appreciate it and it helps others discover the podcast.
Then email us your review and we’ll give you a free copy of “Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound“.
And if you don’t like the podcast….then why are you still reading this?  Send your complaints to: madeupemailaddress@gmail.com.

    Dear Matt and Mike..
    Just about this time last year, it wasn’t even in my imagination that I will be able at some point of my life to use Ultrasound as a bed side skill!!
    The machine was always there in our E.R. but we never touched it, not only because we didn’t know how to, but also because we didn’t have any idea about its potential applicability in Emergency Medicine..
    Now thanks to you, whenever I’m on my shift, i can’t imagine my self working without it :)
    It all began with a “mind opener” lecture by Dr. Rishya Manikam, from the University of Malaya, Malaysia..
    But then almost every thing I know about the use of Ultrasound in E.M. I knew it from you..
    You are making a worldwide difference in the world of Medicine may be without even realizing it..
    I just wanted to say thank you and to tell you that all of your efforts are being appreciated..
    And by the way as direct result of your teachings, I was lucky enough to contribute with an Echo clip in you great web site, Sonocloud.org, it’s named (Massive Pericardial Effusion) and now its among the most viewed clips :) and here is the link of it (http://sonocloud.org/watch_video.php?v=46BNYKGROGB7)
