Military

Historically, the battlefield environment limited your ability to diagnose and treat your patients. With the rapid evolution and adoption of small, portable ultrasound machines, these limitations are a thing of the past. However, you must have the necessary ultra-sonographer skills and knowledge to help your patients under extreme pressure. SonoBridge for the Military bridges this gap and puts the power of ultrasound in your hands. Our military modules are designed by Rob Blankenship, MD, FACEP, an Emergency Physician known for teaching ultrasound in battlefield situations, and trusted by the United States Special Forces Command.

Nurses

How many times per shift do you struggle gaining adequate IV access for your patients? Your skills are awesome, but medical advances have created a large population of chronic patients with poor peripheral access. Visualization of the vessel while placing a peripheral IV greatly increases your chance of success.  SonoBridge for Nurses is an online vascular ultrasound course designed by an Emergency Physician who directs an RN ultrasound-guided peripheral vascular access program.

First Responders

Quickly stabilizing patients in the field has its own set of challenges. What diagnostic tools are available to you to be more confident in your medical decision-making? Small portable ultrasound machines are becoming more available to paramedic/aeromedical transport teams. Learn how ultrasound can improve your chance of vascular access and diagnose undifferentiated hypotension. Gain the knowledge in the field to better prepare the receiving hospital team and ultimately, better care for your patients. SonoBridge for First Responders was designed and written by an Emergency Physician who currently directs an ultrasound program for his hospital’s aeromedical transport system.
