Dr. Kennedy Hall, our senior ultrasound fellow, and the Section of Emergency Ultrasound recently published on the 5E’s of focused emergency echocardiography. Life in the Fast Lane, an emergency medicine FOAM/FOAMed (Free, Open Access Medical Education) website featured the article in their most recent “Research and Reviews in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care” post.
