    Brief Echo in Cardiac Arrest

    Jugular Venous Pressure

    Jugular Venous Pressure

    Jugular venous distention (JVD) is a classic physical exam finding taught for ages, but assessing it can be a challenge. Can ultrasound do a better job and therefore offer a non-invasive evaluation of the patient’s right heart pressures? This goal has been the pursuit of many ultrasounds before. This time we have a new vessel to assess and a nice reference standard (right heart cath)!

    US-Guided Arthrocentesis

    US-Guided Arthrocentesis

    In this episode, Mike and Jacob dive into an important intersection of musculoskeletal and procedural ultrasound - the ultrasound-guided arthrocentesis. People have been doing arthrocentesis without the help of ultrasound for a while, and most would agree it is feasible. BUT what about those smaller joints - like the wrist, elbow, and ankle? Perhaps that is where the greatest benefit would be in making sure your needle gets to the right place. These authors performed a randomized trial of this specific population to investigate this question.
