Reviewing “POCUS for PE: the 60/60 sign” From MetroHealth Emergency Ultrasound

In this post, I review and link to MetroHealth Emergency Ultrasound‘s POCUS for PE: the 60/60 sign, 53:14, Feb 2, 2022, by Dr. Matthew Tabbut, MD and Dr. Ashish Aneja, MD.

Note to myself and my readers: The best way to quickly review this teaching video is to watch the video on YouTube. By doing this, you can follow the video using the transcript. And as you go through the transcript you will be automatically reviewing the slides.

I put these resources on my medical education blog because the blog’s WordPress search function easily allows me to quickly find and access my study resources.

And copying and pasting the slides and transcript excerpts in a blog post (like this one) helps me reinforce my learning. But again, I recommend my readers review the video on YouTube so that they can follow along with the autogenerated (but usually very accurate) transcript.
