Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension  Course: RUSH Exam Course

Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension (RUSH Exam) is a protocol in which the ultrasound is used to diagnose shock in the patient who presents with undifferentiated hypotension.  The Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension exam teaches the clinician how to rapidly identify the etiology of shock by examining the heart for tamponade, right ventricular enlargement and left ventricular function, intravascular volume status (fluid responsiveness), aorta for aneurysm or dissection and the deep veins of the legs for DVT.

Our RUSH exam training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.

Management of Vasopressor Extravasation Injuries

by Joseph Esherick, M.D., FAAFP, FHM

Peripheral vasopressor infusions are generally safe at low-moderate doses and for short durations, but you must watch the patient carefully for extravasation that can cause serious tissue injury.

Simulation Based Training for Central Venous Catheters

by Rick Rutherford, M.D., FAAFP

Balancing patient safety with trainee experience presents an ongoing challenge in medicine. Simulation based training has been proposed as a tool to improve the safety of bedside procedures, but has not been rigorously studied. This metaanalysis reviews the evidence available and evaluates whether simulation based training improves success rates for central venous catheter placement.

In-person Procedural Education in the Era of COVID19

by Joseph Esherick, M.D., FAAFP, FHM

Medical procedural education in the era of COVID19 is still best conducted via HANDS-ON simulation-based procedural training. Procedural skills can NOT be attained via remote education, but in-person training must be conducted safely.
