Intraosseous access video lecture

Intraosseous access is now a common procedure in emergency departments. Everyone seams to be familiar with how to use some of the popular assisted devices. It is very easy to learn how to use them during a quick workshop. However, I have noticed that many do not know all the theory around it. They are good at the sexy bit of introducing the needle, but do not really understand indications, contraindications and all the other parts, like anaesthesia, to make the most of it.
Enjoy.

Ultrasound guided peripheral venous access video lecture

My dear readers, if you even exist anymore :-), I have neglected you. For that I am sorry. My last post was more than a year ago. A year in which I maybe some big changes in my life and career. I have moved to the United Kingdom and currently have a new, cool and shiny job. My time is divided between emergency department and medical simulation suite. So I get to do all the things I love, seeing patients, teaching others, playing with high fidelity manikins and conducting small and sweet IT projects.

During the last year or so, I have gone nuts for point of care ultrasound (POCUS). When I am in the emergency department use of ultrasound jumps by 300%. I use it very often and can say that in many ways it has revolutionised my practice. So I wanted to share my knowledge and excitement of its use. I started creating video lectures, as well as combined e-learning courses at my hospital, of all the ways ultrasound can help you make a difference for your patients.

So, insert drum roll here, here it is! My first video lecture demonstrating how to use ultrasound to gain peripheral venous access. Hope you’ll like it, because there are others following soon, and I intend to bore you with them as well 😉
