Back to the basics

Ultrasound Mistakes Podcast with @EGLS_JFandMax. Also, ebooks FREE on #foamed

Are you sitting down?  If not, then go ahead….have a seat.  We’ve got news.  Sometimes… do we say this……ultrasounding the patient may not be the right thing to do.  Now, we’ve yet to find that particular situation, but the Canadian guys tell us this is the case.  In fact, there’s a whole list of problems and pitfalls that can be associated with ultrasound.  We’ve kind of known this for a while, but honestly we can’t bring ourselves to say it out loud.  So we’ve got these guys to do it for us.  I mean, they’re Canadian.  You can’t hate a Canadian no matter what they say or how funny they say it.
Seriously, we think this is pretty important.  We spend TONS of time showing you all how to do this and telling you why you should be doing ultrasound.  We at least need to discuss a little bit during this “Back to the Basics” series about when not to perform an ultrasound and what mistakes you can make, especially starting out.
Also, are you still sitting down?  Introduction to Bedside Ultrasound is FREE on  iTunes as well as

    I haven’t been able to download the ibooks via the links. A couple of my colleagues have had the same difficulty. Any suggestions?

    Thanks very much. Keep up the great work

        Hi Matt you may remember me from Sonowars ‘go team USA’.
        I agree with the previous comments-you can view the books on Inkling but it doesn’t want to download.
