  • November 13 2020 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM

Diagnostic uncertainty can add significantly to the stresses associated with caring for patients in resource-limited circumstances. With ultrasound technology advancing rapidly, it has become more portable and accessible by many in the field. We will discuss the potential uses of ultrasound in helping identify causes of hypoxemia or shock and discuss the ability to image organ systems that you may not have considered. Hopefully, this session will provide a glimpse into ultrasound imaging capabilities to help improve your diagnostic certainty both here and abroad.
