    GEL Live! Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter & How to G.E.L.

    We are back for Part 2 of this raucous jamboree! Creagh, Mike, and the gang from Denver Health Ultrasound continue sounding the depths of the article on optic nerve sheath diameter in patients with elevated intracranial pressure. There are more lessons learned about general principles in dissecting POCUS articles. This is Part 2 of 2 episodes!

    GEL Live! Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter & How to G.E.L.

    This episode is a real holiday special! Creagh and Mike collaborate with the Denver Health Ultrasound team to do a live (at the time) journal club on a recent article about optic nerve sheath diameter. We do a deep dive into the intricacies of the article but also develop important general principles for Gathering Evidence from the POCUS Literature. This is Part 1 of 2 episodes!

    Ischemic Stroke

    Ischemic Stroke

    I know your first thought - is this for real?! The POCUS enthusiasts have gone off the rails again! Well - that very well may be the case, but hear me out- this is a fascinating idea. This article presents a novel strategy for searching for embolic etiologies in the acute phase of ischemic strokes (which means even climbing into CT with a handheld device!). "Why?" you may rightfully ask. That is a really great question, and I'm glad you asked. I guess you will have to check out this episode to find out!

    Diverticulitis

    Diverticulitis

    Ultrasound of the bowel is a relatively new application for POCUS users. It came into the spotlight proving itself with small bowel obstruction, but now we are slowly peristalsing even further down the colon of indications. You may be surprised to find that you can actually see diverticulitis on ultrasound, but it turns out it's not that hard! The question is - how reliable are the sonographic findings? This study is one of the largest to compare POCUS to CT to investigate this important application.

    Well...we finally made it. This is the 100th episode of the Ultrasound G.E.L. Podcast! The whole team is on this one, and we discuss thoughts sent in by our listeners on the future of point-of-care ultrasound research. Also reflections, plans, and thank yous.

    VExUS

    VExUS

    You may have heard whispers of a magical new way to determine if your patient has too much fluid on board. The VExuS (Venous Excess UltraSound) grading system has been described as a way to use the IVC in combination with abdominal organ doppler in order to determine the degree of venous congestion. This is the first study that takes a look at the VExUS system to see if it can predict acute kidney injury in post-operative patients.

Did you know GEL stands for Gathering Evidence from Literature? That's exactly what this podcast are doing. Bringing that hometown flavor to some big issues! Great for medical and non medical people alike.
