Ultrasound In EMS & ED Docs On Patrol?

AUDIO5I’m posting this first quick podcast to hopefully begin a new series. Sort of a supplement to the longer shows and my quick takes and tips in EMS. Not sure what to call it… car cast, EMS daily’s or just a Jim Rant.

Take a listen and let me know what you think about the show, topics and suggest a title for me.

If your agency ever strikes it rich and begins using ultrasound how will you know where and what to look for? Knowing A&P is a great start and IMO (humble yet accurate) vital “know how” in EMS, ultrasound or not.
