Still shut, but that’s no excuse to not POCUS…
have had a lot of fun following along as EMUGs presents what is happening with ultrasound in the emergency medicine world DownUnder. A lot has been created in the past couple of years and we look forward to working alongside these passionate users of ultrasound and seeing how things grow. Just a shame we couldn’t have joined everyone in New Zealand 🙁
And despite what we thought was a quiet week, plenty of free high quality resources from around the world online yet again. Perception is blurred when you are trapped between the same four walls…
Keeping up with it all has kept the mind sharp and thoughts racing – pick an article and expand your horizons too.
See you next week.

Have you been teaching POCUS over that past year? How has physical distancing impacted your teaching? What new ideas did you use to overcome physical restrictions?
