Top POCUS Tips!

(This was first published on blog.5minsono.com on December 17, 2018)

This week I’m trying a new format. In this video I’m going to share with you my top 6 tips for elevating your POCUS game:

  1. Make sure your depth is adequate
  2. Work on your gain
  3. Don’t be afraid of applying pressure
  4. Move your patient around
  5. Know how to manipulate your probe
  6. Don’t be scared of failing

Check it out and let me know what you think!

  1. Great tips, more fine tuning and really basic, but I find its easy for people to forget to check they’ve got the right preset for the transducer, changing pen/gen/res can be helpful and even changing transducer.

  2. Great tips. Thank you! I would add – Find a mentor. There’s probably someone at your shop that is really good at ultrasound. Watch them do scans, have them critique you doing scans.
