Episode 46 – The Stethoscope Replacement w/Dr. Cynthia Griffin

Making her second debut on the podcast, Dr. Cynthia Griffin joins us at AMTC19 to discuss the utility of ultrasound/POCUS. Cynthia presented on this topic and highlighted its indication when following your XABC’s (Hemorrhage, Airway, Breathing, Circulation) exam. Are you currently using ultrasound in your practice? If not, are you actively trying to convince your medical director to implement it? If so, you don’t want to miss this episode!
