For all you echoholics out there, there’s a new(ish) site that’s worth a look.
Echopraxis.com is a website for trainees and specialists in ICU, anaesthesia, and emergency medicine, interested in echo and ultrasound.
They’re a bunch of intensivists who are learning, using and teaching echo and ultrasound in our own practice of critical care.
They include old friends of mine and great intensivists Li Tan and Aidan Burrell.
Their hope is that this record of their journeys will become a useful resource for other trainees and specialists as they acquire skills, pursue qualifications and integrate ultrasound into their daily work.
They’ll be sharing
- images and loops they see (with fictionalized clinical context)
- approaches to scanning, and how we tailor them to different situations and disease states
- links to useful online resources and events
- information on courses and opportunities to gain experience
- their thoughts on the paths we’ve chosen to acquire formal qualifications in echo and ultrasound
They look forward to seeing your hints and pointers in the comments on their posts so have a look…
