Septic Arthritis of the Hip

Does POCUS Expedite Care?

By Michael Prats on 04/26/21 04:00 AM

We have been ultrasounding hips for a while now. We know this modality is accurate for finding effusions. This can really help in cases of suspected septic arthritis. Unlike patients with this disease, this study takes multiple steps forward. First it asks the question - "Does point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in the emergency department lead to a faster diagnosis?". Then it goes further by trying to determine whether or not POCUS can lead to earlier treatment as well. Fascinating results from a really hip study!

Lung Ultrasound for Acute Chest Syndrome

Accuracy & Satisfaction

By Delia Gold on 03/15/21 04:00 AM

Acute chest syndrome is such a great application for lung ultrasound, especially in pediatrics where we do everything we can to dodge the harmful affects of ionizing radiation. We have covered this once before on the podcast, but it was ages ago. This is a recent well-done study that takes another look to see how ultrasound compares to the commonly employed chest radiography. Join the GEL Jr team as they discuss how this might play out in practice!

Pediatric POCUS Interpretation

Variability in Learning

By Delia Gold on 02/15/21 04:00 AM

This is the first episode of GEL Jr. - our pediatric series! Hosts Delia Gold and Lianne McLean join Mike in discussing an important article on the learning of pediatric POCUS. These authors studied how participants learned image interpretation from an online POCUS educational system. The findings have many important implications for education and competency!

Starting with next podcast - we are going to be briefly highlighting cool CASE REPORTS before the main article.

There is a lot you can learn from even a single case!
