2022 Will Be Your Year For POCUS
As we reflect on 2021, here at GUSI we are proud of how we have risen to the unique challenge of providing high quality medical education around POCUS despite the recent COVID constraints against gathering. We appreciate our community and hope you enjoy the last case studies and Mena’s last TikTok of the year!
Lung Ultrasound – The Missing Clinical Piece
Lung Ultrasound is an established and highly utilized component of POCUS, often providing critical information about a patient. GUSI is a global leader in teaching lung ultrasound and this month’s newsletter features case studies with POCUS clips and the new Local Heroes Series.
Why POCUS is a Game Changer in Global Health
According to the WHO, two-thirds of the world’s population live in areas without easy access to diagnostic imaging and POCUS can help bridge that resource gap. GUSI and MedGlobal have been awarded the 2021 MissionPOCUS and together we will train physicians in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh to use POCUS.
See Your Primary Care Patients in a New Dimension
Here at GUSI, we are passionate about POCUS use in Family Medicine and Primary Care. This month’s newsletter features case studies in the primary care setting highlighting how POCUS can provide a practitioner with greater confidence and effectiveness.
The Power of POCUS for Cardiac Care
POCUS is a rapid, resource-efficient way to definitively diagnose patients at the bedside, in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, particularly in the cardiac examination. Here at GUSI, we hope to help equip medical professionals across specialties with high-yield, clinically-relevant POCUS skills, starting from any level of familiarity with ultrasound.
How POCUS Enhances Care for Musculoskeletal Injuries
The versatility of POCUS allows its use across specialties and practice settings. It has great utility in Orthopedics for both the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries as exemplified in this month’s case studies.
POCUS for COVID-19 in Primary Care and Beyond
POCUS can be transformative in diagnosing lung pathology, often by narrowing down or clarifying the differential, which has become even more important with COVID-19. Begin your learning about lung pathology from our case studies within the newsletter. GUSI is proud to offer the opportunity for continued learning with free access to our complete lung ultrasound module during these critical times.
