Your team was tasked with setting up an observation post in the Hindu Kush mountains. As you complete the mission and descend down a snow covered slope, one of your team members slips and slides. He is able to self-arrest using an ice axe. Unfortunately he sustains an injury to his right shoulder.
Yet another quarter has gone by, and the SOFsono JSOM case #2 is out in the Journal of Special Operations Medicine (fall issue). As promised, we are following with further discussion here on the blog.
Our goal is to provide you with a series of SOF-focused and case-based ultrasound education TiDBiTS. We want to show you how ultrasound can help you solve a number of OPERATiONAL and CLiNiCAL DiLEMMAS, especially in prolonged field care settings. Tidbits are defined as small and particularly interesting pieces of information, hence brevity is intentional!
