The long wait has been well worth it. The EM Cases POCUS Cases Video Series has officially been launched!

POCUS Cases is an original EM Cases video series led by Dr. Robert Simard, an Emergency Physician at North York General Hospital and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. Rob always wished he had x-ray vision…but since he possesses no special powers…using Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is the next closest thing. He completed a POCUS fellowship at NOSM and teaches POCUS nationally and internationally. He is the creator POCUS Cases, an original EM cases screencast that provides POCUS clinical pearls in an engaging and fun way that will help you provide stellar care to your patients.

In this POCUS Cases 1 – Pulmonary Embolism, Dr. Simard shows us how to recognize right ventricular heart strain on POCUS, how to appreciate that right ventricular strain has a differential diagnosis that is much more comprehensive than just pulmonary embolism, how to differentiate the specific findings of pulmonary embolism from chronic findings of right ventricular heart strain on POCUS and finally, how to understand the limitations of POCUS in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.

Keep your eyes open for a new POCUS Cases each month!
