We’re grateful for small mercies this week …
and while we’re not fans of the picnic – ants, dirt, no flat surfaces… – we will certainly be looking forward to seeing our double vaccinated neighbours in an appropriately distanced outdoor setting. The pandemic may not be over, and there are still challeneges ahead, but small things can make a big difference.
Plenty of things that will make a big difference in the weekly wrap this week – from thyroid to testicles it seems POCUS is everywhere!
And as always -if you have something coming up you’d like to add or a gem we may have overlooked – let us know.
See you next week.
Mike and Suean
P.S. – The fun September Coaching Corner on forearm blocks with Dr Elias Jaffa is now available – anywhere, anytime – check it out.

Well that didn't go well
It appears not much has changed in 4 years since originally asking the question, "What do you cover the probe with for a #POCUS PIV?"
There are clear guidelines on this and you put yourself at risk by not following them
