Ultrasound G.E.L. – Deep Learning for Peripheral IV Anatomy

Deep learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that holds a lot of promise for point-of-care ultrasound, but we don't have much data on how it performs. The fearless investigators in this fascinating study train a deep learning algorithm to recognize sonographic anatomy of the upper extremity and then pit it against expert POCUS users to see who can interpret the images most accurately!

Ultrasound G.E.L. – The RUSH Exam in Polytrauma

The RUSH exam is a family favorite. It's a reliably easy to recall hypotensive protocol that uses ultrasound to help determine the etiology of a patient's shock. Well here's a new idea - trauma patient's can be in shock too, right? So maybe we should perform a full RUSH exam instead of just a measly EFAST? Well...hold your horses there kiddo, there may be more to think about with this one.

Ultrasound G.E.L. – Ultrasound Guided Nerve Block for Shoulder Dislocations

You are treating someone with a shoulder dislocation. You have a few options that can be used to help put it back where it belongs: A) Procedural sedation - the old standby. B) Intraarticular injection - some people love it, some hate it C) Relaxational maneuvers - sometimes feasible, and, last but not least D) Regional anesthesia - the new kid on the (nerve) block.
