An Excerpt from LITFL today: a Cheap way to Make an US Simulator!

An excerpt from Life in the Fast Lane (LITFL): VERY cool US simulator that you can make cheaply!!! Just need hardware….The guys from Saskatchewan, Paul Kulyk and Paul Olszynski (http://www.edus2.com/) have developed a trainer for using in simulation which they explain very well in their project summary: “The Emergency Department Ultrasound Simulator (edus2TM) is a portable bedside ultrasound device that allows for the seamless integration of Emergency Department Ultrasound (EDUS) into high fidelity simulation scenarios (HFS). Trainees using the edus2 gain the opportunity to determine whether to use bedside ultrasound (indications), how to properly hold and place the probe (image generation) and finally how to assess scans (image interpretation) as displayed on the edus2 screen all within the context of an HFS scenario.”
