We’re very quickly heading towards the middle of the year – marked around here by some paying homage to May the Forth by dressing up in strange costumes and speaking in tongues – not sure of the significance!?
While ultrasound can’t diagnose the cause of this, there is plenty of free amazing resources again this week to share. In particular, check out the ACEP technical guide to Global Point of Care Ultrasound. An amazing resource with learning applicable to all teachers of the sound arts.
And if you are keen to get started in POCUS with your own system, please get in touch to explore the many bundling options we have. Learning on the system you use can bring so many benefits.
And a Happy Mother’s Day to all – have a lovely Sunday.
See you next week
Suean and Mike
P.S. – we had a fantastic #coachingcorner last night with James and Mark sharing how important POCUS can be in podiatry – both from a diagnostic and preventative medicine perspective. That recording will be up soon – in the meantime check out the other videos anytime on our website.

Radiology Case Reports
In the #ICU, most patients are supine and may have difficulty lateralizing for #lung ultrasound. See how a trans-hepatic approach with #POCUS can be used for quick and easy visualization of the lungs in supine patients: https://t.co/ApjgG4ufwD @amerjohri @iamritu #FOAMed #FOAMus pic.twitter.com/7ozGHXX3vM
