When Maverick Medical Education looks for courses to offer to medical professionals around the country, we are considering what may best serve patients and communities. Pain management and relief techniques have always been a part of what drives our educators, but as we saw more and more techniques better performed with ultrasound assistance, we realized that there was a valuable tool in Point of Care Ultrasound, or POCUS, as well. This nimble diagnostic tool can be used in any field and offers medical staff the chance to quickly assess what is taking place inside a patient’s body, with the ability to understand how that patient is progressing throughout their stay. POCUS is versatile in how it can treat and help the patients we serve today and tomorrow.
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.
Maverick Medical Education has always been passionate about training medical professionals in a wide array of techniques to provide communities with the best care and treatment options. We also reap the benefits of seeing how the techniques we are invested in can be utilized in different ways, rapidly adapting to serve the needs of our patients. While we intrinsically understand the importance of Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in multiple settings, we never imagined the benefits it may have to help medical teams in treating a global pandemic.
