Non-linear Probes for Lung Sliding??

March 15, 2019

Its is absolutely necessary to switch to the linear transducer when looking for lung sliding (i.e., PTX)? While the linear will definitely give you the best image, watch this video to see my thoughts on using the curvilinear and even the phased array in the eval of lung sliding!  While continuing to my work with revamping the Ultrasound Leadership Academy's curriculum, I had this thought.  Maybe we don't need to switch every time?  Check it out!

How to be an effective learner

November 10, 2018

I'm involved with a few other podcasts, and recently we did a series of podcasts for the ultrasound podcast where we talked about some key aspects of producing a good lecture (Check them out here, if you haven't: Part 1 Part 2).  In this podcast, I'm going to give you 3 top tips for being an effective learner when you hear a lecture.  It's just a bit past that 5 minute mark I try to keep these videos at, but there was just too much goodness to make it shorter than what it is.  Enjoy!
