POCUS: Unnecessary or undervalued?
On this episode of Inside EMS, our co-hosts debate the value of point-of-care ultrasound and how much it should be utilized by providers
While the use of ultrasound at the point of care is expanding, Cebollero contends it is an unnecessary practice, stating, "[It] does not change the way I do my job as a paramedic, and only wastes time." Kelly counters the same was said about end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2).
The hosts also send out best wishes to Toni, a paramedic that was overcome with fumes on a call and is having a rough recovery.
