So in case you missed #SMACC in Chicago – I was lucky enough to be able to talk about one of my greatest passions – bedside Ultrasound.
The talk was a bit of the evangelical side – the goal being to try and make the audience think about how we image patients. I wanted to show how I use US to be faster, better, more effective and safer in delivering care. I deliberately tried to avoid a long-winded evidence discussion. After all – it is SMACC, entertainment is important too!
So here is the evidence – the references for my talk. You could also go back and look at this post “Bedside US Evidence Echoes” and the fascinating discussion of ultrasound evidence in the comments thread.
