A week of true opposites of emotion this week.
At the low end we had our home burgled this week – not a pleasant experience to find your safe space invaded, rooms trashed and treasured memories of sentimental rather than monetary value gone.
Thankfully we weren’t at home, and while everyone is a little shaken we’re OK.
At the emotional polar opposite, earlier in the week Suean was notified that she had been awarded Fellowship by the American Institute for Ultrasound in Medicine – an amazing honour. Proud as punch. As the only Australian representing in the USA she’s going to make it her mission to get Vegemite and Kit-Kats added to the catering menu…
Something to aim for in 2021 – we can’t wait to put 2020 behind us.
Enjoy this week’s best of #FOAMus and see you soon.
Suean and Mike
P.S. – we’re still doing a callout – if you are interested in teaching ultrasound with us and are based in Melbourne drop us a line – we need you!
P.P.S. – the final #coachingcorner for 2020 – fractures and hematoma blocks – is online now. Tune in as there was some great technical tips, tricks and cases. Join our community of clever and catch up with recordings of the previous sessions – available for you free any time.

Lack of lung sliding… not always pneumothorax. Consider clinical context, hx, etc & look for a lung point which is highly specific for PTX
