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.
