Well, here we are, the apical four-chamber post. I know you are wondering, why would I start a post like that? It’s because I have been procrastinating on this post. After all, this is not my favorite exam. I would much rather be talking to you today about the PSLA or the excellent sternal notch […]
Ah yes, the fabled EMSPOCUS resource list is finally here! Cue the confetti and the balloon drop! The resources we list here are ones that we personally use and love.
Your Ultrasound Resource list for the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. This will be updated with new resources as they become available.

Our own Jedi master, Jason Bowman, gives a fantastic overview on point of care ultrasound, why it is the inevitable future of prehospital care and why the concept of the modern “mobile intensive care unit” is, at best, a joke. Click through to the Youtube page for a full […]
