Tuesday’s Rapid Fire Ultrasound session will consist of a series of clinical cases presented to the audience and panelists as unknowns in conjunction with a series of audience response system questions to challenge the audience. The session starts at 10:45 am in room 262 of the convention center.
During the session, panelists will engage in a rapid-fire, energetic, informative, and amusing interchange to reach the case diagnosis based on the clinical case ultrasonographic findings, and may call upon the audience for support.
“This session demonstrates real-life ICU scenarios where critical care ultrasonagraphy adds to other available data to help get to the best diagnosis and therapy,” said Lewis Satterwhite, MD, FCCP, of the University of Kansas Medical Center. “Last year, this represented a range of uses and pathology. These cases can challenge people in the audience that regularly use point-of-care-ultrasound (POCUS) and (hopefully) demonstrate practical applications for those that have not-yet adopted POCUS into their practice.”
This fast-moving session is formatted to engage the audience and an expert panel member simultaneously, said Dr. Satterwhite, chair of the session. It has been well received at both the national level CHEST courses and at the CHEST Annual Meeting postgraduate courses.
“We have found this format to be engaging,” he said. “The audience can participate and see how an expert works through a thought process at the same time.”
Dr. Satterwhite will introduce the session, and Kenneth Lyn-Kew, MD, of National Jewish Health, and Gregory Schmidt, MD, FCCP, of the University of Iowa, will be the panelists.
“We want the audience to come away with a renewed interest in using POCUS and hopefully an understanding of some pitfalls as well as new skills and ideas,” Dr. Satterwhite said.
