Relying solely on a stethoscope to make life and death decisions is a dangerously outdated practice…so why do we still do it?

Dr. Davinder Ramsingh (@pocuseducation) is an anesthesiologist and Director of Perioperative Ultrasound at Loma Linda University Health. His crusade is to bring Point Of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) into the perioperative realm where it can assist in acute decision making. He’s training a new generation of students in the art and science of POCUS, and now he’s schooling us! Make sure to check out his upcoming CME training conference here.

Here’s the Podcast audio version
