The continual, rapid expansion of machine learning and artificial intelligence continues to expand in healthcare. Software to increase diagnostic accuracy and increase productivitiy and speed are becoming more available. What are the opportunities and challenges of this new frontier?
Unrecognized LVOTO will fail to the standard shock management and may require 180 degree change of the management like counterintuitively decreasing inotropes. Unexplained shock. Rapid catecholamine scalation. Think about LVOTO
Zoom. Teams. Hangout. There has been a rapid explosion of online learning in the last 2 years. As educators, are we keeping pace with this learning environment or are you just doing what you’ve always done on Powerpoint/Keynote? Learn how some basic adjustments can elevate your presentation to the next level for the learner.
Advances in healthcare means that older, sicker patients are undergoing increasingly complex surgical interventions. As the role of the perioperative physician and team continues to expand, it is inevitable that ultrasound and echocardiographic assessment of such patients as part of their preoperative workup becomes part of the armamentarium of the team.
The management of patients with potential raised intracranial pressure is not confined to just specialist neurointensive care units. Such patients require a high level of monitoring and frequent imaging. Tradiitionally, this has meant regular trips to the CT scanner with all the logistical challenges that it entails. Could ultrasound once again, come to save the day?
