Too many of our population suffer with chronic migraines with little to no relief. While there are some home remedies that can ease the pain that comes with some headaches, it is worth considering an occipital nerve block for patients who are suffering from regular and persistent pain. The occipital nerve block is not only easy to learn in our Maverick Medical Education courses, but easy to administer to patients who are in need of relief.
There is no secret that Maverick Medical Education wants to provide the best. We want the best for students, the best for trainings, and the best for the community at large. By being thoughtful about the pedagogical decisions we make, like making our course content accessible ahead of time, front loading the academic work, so our time in person can be spent practicing techniques, we know we are providing the best we can. This drive for the best carries over to every aspect of the lab, including using cadavers for modules and learning.
There can be little doubt that COVID-19 is the major topic of conversation in lives today, not just for the medical field, but for government, businesses, organizations, and communities everywhere. As each of us adapt to the guidelines and requirements put forth, while also working to protect ourselves and our family, adapting, and doing so quickly, has been vital to success. One incredible way medical teams are adjusting to meet the needs of their patients is by furthering the use of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in a number of ways.
Continued education is vital to medical practice, for those in almost every aspect of what we do. Maverick Education was founded by a passion to help others learn the skills our leadership team acquired when searching for ways to better serve their patients. By constantly learning new techniques, practices, and methods, we can provide better care for those who walk through our doors everyday.
The stethoscope is such a normalized piece of equipment, it is constantly associated with the medical field. Doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and even dress up sets are rarely seen without a stethoscope slung around the neck or tucked away in a pocket. The stethoscope wasn’t always a part of routine medical examinations, however, and the use of this equipment revolutionized the field and care of patients. Just as the stethoscope altered medicine in the early 1800s, so too is point of care ultrasound, or POCUS. Ultrasound technology is being fine tuned and used in various medical settings, changing much about diagnostic and management in patient care.
