If you take care of sick patients, you owe it to them to learn POCUS. You will save lives!
A pilot training program for point-of-care ultrasound in Kenya
#POCUS Point of Care Ultrasound Initiative
Proficiency in basic Point of Care Ultrasound in Clinical Practice (#POCUS) is an essential skill for healthcare providers involved in the acute and routine care of adults and children. Kenya has a limited number of radiologists and many healthcare facilities lack basic imaging modalities leading to delayed diagnoses and potentially increased morbidity and mortality. Point of Care Ultrasonography in the hands of a trained healthcare provider has been shown to augment the health care providers’ ability to assess and manage critically ill or injured patients and to increase the healthcare providers’ confidence in the diagnosis and initial management.
