Point of care ultrasound, or POCUS, is emerging as a more and more beneficial tool with the number of applications that can be used to diagnose and treat patients effectively, something Maverick Medical Education is passionate about. Of particular interest is the ways POCUS performs in regards to pediatric medicine, particularly in emergency settings. Overall, ultrasound waves are safer for children by reducing their exposure to radiation from other imaging options. Additionally, the resolution can be tweaked and adjusted for the developmental age of the child at the bedside. Further, there are specific cases where POCUS can assist medical professionals in the patients they meet.
Not surprising for our team at Maverick Medical Education, these are only a few of the ways POCUS is revolutionizing the medical field. By training more individuals on how to use the equipment and to make effective diagnoses and treatment plans with POCUS, our hospitals will be better equipped to care for our patients.
