Faculty development in point of care ultrasound for internists.

Faculty development in point of care ultrasound for internists. Med Educ Online. 2016 Jan;21(1):33287 Authors: Maw A, Jalali C, Jannat-Khah D, Gudi K, Logio L, Evans A, Anderson S, Smith J Abstract Lack of general medicine faculty expertise is a likely contributor to the slow adoption of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) by internal medicine (IM) residency training programs. We developed a 10-week faculty development program, during which 15 faculty members participated in 2 hours and 10 hours of online didactic and hands-on training, respectively. Pre-post comparisons showed that there were statistically significant improvements in faculty participants' ability to interpret images (p

The applicability of six mathematical models (parabolic diffusion, power law, Weibull’s equation, Elovich’s equation, second order rate, two- site kinetic models) to describe the kinetics of the conventional (CSLE) and ultrasound assistant extraction (UAE) of polyphenols (TPC) from fresh and distilled grape marc and its components, seeds and skins, after removal of non-polar compounds was studied. The best e...

I was recently hired as a consultant to review claims for services provided by about 2 dozen DPMs. The fraud and the abuse are staggering. Most of those involved are young associates in private practices. The practice owners impressed these associates with how much money they can make if they bill as instructed. I have reviewed cases for an initial visit with unilateral heel pain. The patient ended up with BILATERAL xrays, ultrasound and fluoroscopy all for “comparison”. Patients... Fraud

The methods or conditions used in the three procedures had significant effects on the composition, structure and function of the polysaccharides obtained. Temperature, pH, enzyme, ultrasound and microwave were the important factors associated with their physicochemical changes. Molecular degradation and intermolecular inte...
