Handheld ultrasound?
I'll likely be taking a job where we get substantial CME money. I'm thinking pretty strongly about getting a portable ultrasound, but have little experience using them. Anyone here know of any good ones worth the steep price? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Handheld ultrasound
I work in a hospital system without great access to ultrasound machines and I’ve been thinking about buying a hand held probe. Does anyone have any recommendations? I see most utility in IVs, a lines, some POCUS stuff. I understand it’s tough to find a single probe that does it all. We always have a machine in PACU for blocks so that’s not an issue. Thoughts?

State senate just passed a bill making abortion illegal - no exception clause for mother ’s health
Indiana senate just passed a law banning abortion except in cases of rape or incest. They’ve conveniently left out the mother’s health exception clause. So what’s the game plan for treating ectopic pregnancies in these states? Serial ultrasounds until no fetal heart rate and then proceed with management? I can’t imagine the number of lives this will put at risk. Do you just keep resuscitating with blood the hemorrhaging patient that still has a fetal heart beat? Do you ship them to...

Creative ways to spend CME?
My "not for profit" "academic" hospital system has gone fill third reich, and while C-suite admins can still make 1 mil+, us lowly pit docs have had our CME accounts severely restricted. We can no longer use the money for conferences, and cannot use it for any equipment, or hardware (computers, ultrasounds, etc.). They've also gotten smart to the CME packages that offer gift cards. I don't want to buy textbooks. They're essentially trying to re-capture funds that are contractually owed... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Top Sports Medicine Fellowships for US Training
Hello all! I know this has been asked before, but as we all know programs change over time. At this point, what are the top sports medicine fellowships that offer high level diagnostic and interventional ultrasound training? Which programs offer a formalized ultrasound curriculum with eventual progression to advanced procedures and performing complete diagnostic scans? Thank you for your time and input!

Help! Need new procedure room jokes
Nurses are complaining about hearing the same material. Please help me out with some of your favorites. Some of my faves: - when performing any ultrasound procedure, knee, stellate, etc. saying, "Now I won't be able to tell you if its a boy or a girl..." - when patient says they are nervous saying, "don't worry, I just watched a YouTube video on how to do this." - when patient says they are afraid of needles say, "me too! I can't even stand to look at them, thats why I keep my eyes closed... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Survey on use of nerve stimulators in regional anesthesia
inspired by a long thoughtful conversation with a PACU nurse I had this week about changing patterns in regional anesthesia, I'm wondering about practice patterns with nerve stimulators these days for blocks done under ultrasound guidance. Specifically things like an interscalene block or popliteal block where it could be done either with pure ultrasound or pure nerve stimulator technique or a combination of both. Obviously I assume nobody is using a nerve stimulator for something like a... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Does your OMS I and II curriculum involve Step 2/Level 2 material?
Hello everyone! Current OMS II here. I’ve noticed that our school has a lot of clinical oriented lectures during OMS I and II. And often times on our exams we are expected to know very clinical material (e.g. indications for pelvic ultrasound vs MRI, managing adrenal disorders with medications vs surgery, cancer staging, etc). Little to none of this has shown up on the Step 1 question banks I have been working with (admittedly I haven’t started UWORLD yet, but going to next week). And...

Reimbursement for ultrasound-guided procedures in a private practice group?
I've had an position offered to me to function purely as a proceduralist performing ultrasound-guided injections. The procedure referrals would come from a large internal referral system in a physician-owned private practice. I'm looking for information from others on what this type of set-up could look like from an insurance reimbursement/financial standpoint? Where/how is the best way to determine this if I know the type and total number of procedures I would be doing? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
