Thanks to Dr Mark Rugless, FACEM from St Vincent’s Hospital, for this great introduction to lung ultrasound.
In the coming years ultrasound will continue to develop as an important adjunct to physical findings. Master the basics of eFAST (extended FAST), move on to ultrasound in shock (RUSSH) and continue with lung ultrasound.
Thanks to Dr Jasmine Poonian for this comprehensive introduction to gases.
Tip: follow along at home with the examples given in the talk and work through them yourself on paper and by the end you should be comfortable attacking any gas!
