🔥Okay, maybe he didn't actually give me consent, but I'm sure Mr. Jon Doe Dummy would be 💯% okay with me sticking a needle in his neck 😱😩😰🤔🤒🤐🙃 you know, for teaching purposes👨🏻⚕️ For my non-healthcare professionals, this is an ultrasound🎥🎛machine🤖 used by Anesthesiologists 🙋🏻♂️, Cardiologists, Radiologists, vascular surgeons, technicians, even moms (well, labor and delivery🤰🏼👶🏾 and more) to visualize anatomical structures. By sending sound waves through a transducer, we are able to visualize structures based on different "echogenicities (e.g. bone/tissue more hyperechoic and white) vs fat/blood more hypoechoic and black) aiding in diagnosis and management in medicine and beyond. I am placing a central📌line in the Internal Jugular Vein💆🏼♂️; an invasive procedure that is indicated in patients requiring rapid fluid resuscitation (like if you're really, really thirsty? 💦😛 No silly doctor! fluid resuscitation for emergency🚨 venous access and volume replacement e.g., after a gun shot🔫wound or knife🗡to the chest; also indicated for delivery of caustic medications, cardiac monitoring, hemodialysis, and more❗️Contraindications include patient refusal, contaminated/burned site, obstructed vein e.g. clot or stenosis (and more). Watch out for that carotid artery though🚩💔 (Advice💎 raise your needle hand higher and aim for the ipsilateral nipple 💉) and always gown/mask/glove/clean🛁/drape to reduce the risk of infection🤢🐉👩🏼🔬 *
