Cardiac Arrest Ultrasound

In this weeks podcast, Jacob talks about all things cardiac arrest ultrasound. He tackles 3 different topics starting with ID’ing reversible causes. Not all of the H’s and T’s are amenable to ultrasound diagnosis, but you can use ultrasound for: Tamponade, Tension PTX, Thromboses, Trauma and Hypovolemia. With procedures, ultrasound-guidance is key, but don’t forget that an IO is much faster. Ultrasound-guided pulse checks maybe are a little controversial if you just read abstracts. Remember: ten seconds = ten seconds. The ultrasound does not prolong pulse checks, humans prolong pulse checks. Enjoy!
