Where would the world of paediatrics be without POCUS? We’d still be trying (and failing) to cannulate chubby toddlers by feel alone, we’d still be using radioactive waves to determine if the child in front of us has pneumonia and we wouldn’t have this eye-opening talk from Russ and Cian.

Russ and Cian co-ordinated the wonderful pre-conference ultrasound workshop in London.  Here is one of our favourite pearls is you want to help identify the bladder before performing a SPA. The bladder, looking just like a slice of toast, makes the perfect target.
 
 
 
If this talk has whetted your appetite then why not sign up for one of the www.dftb20.com ultrasound workshops.

This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of  “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal.
