We are back for Part 2 of this raucous jamboree! Creagh, Mike, and the gang from Denver Health Ultrasound continue sounding the depths of the article on optic nerve sheath diameter in patients with elevated intracranial pressure. There are more lessons learned about general principles in dissecting POCUS articles. This is Part 2 of 2 episodes! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/104


GEL Live! Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter & How to G.E.L.

Part 1

By Michael Prats on 12/14/20 04:00 AM

This episode is a real holiday special! Creagh and Mike collaborate with the Denver Health Ultrasound team to do a live (at the time) journal club on a recent article about optic nerve sheath diameter. We do a deep dive into the intricacies of the article but also develop important general principles for Gathering Evidence from the POCUS Literature. This is Part 1 of 2 episodes! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/103


Chest Tube Location

Can POCUS make it safer?

By Michael Prats on 06/22/20 05:00 AM

Placing a tube thoracostomy (aka chest tube) is a very useful procedure but can have complications of injuring the diaphragm or intraabdominal organs. Traditionally, the location for placement is selected using anatomic landmarks to find the correct intercostal space. This study questions the safety of this traditional location by using point-of-care ultrasound to visualize diaphragm movement during respirations. Is this the start of ultrasound-assisted chest tubes? https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/94 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32333800/
