While there are certain medical procedures we can use patients for, in order to gain experience and to train different methods, there are many scenarios where it simply wouldn’t be appropriate. This is especially the case in Maverick Medical Education courses where repetition, when administering anesthesia and performing nerve blocks, is key to proficiency. It simply wouldn’t be safe for a patient to undergo. For this reason, our training courses use pulsatile cadavers.

Anesthesia techniques extend far beyond the obvious of numbing an area to pain in order for a medical procedure to take place for the patient.

I had experience using Ultrasound for regional nerve blocks and have taught Ultrasound use for that purpose through Maverick Medical Education.

There had to have been countless times when doctors and those involved in medicine in ancient times would say, “If only I could look inside my patient and see what was going on!” We live in a time when seeing inside our patients is not just possible, but becoming more common, especially with the assistance of Point of Care Ultrasound.

Maverick Medical Education cannot rely solely on the experience and information we possess as medical providers. We also have to use tools and technology to expand on those skills. Through trial and error, we have chosen several companies to partner with, knowing these groups will help us and our students be more successful in managing pain and helping their patients, wherever they may practice.

Point of Care Ultrasound is becoming more commonly used throughout the medical field and even beyond the four walls of the hospital and professional buildings where doctors, nurses, and technicians do a majority of their work. One of the many promising ways POCUS is being used, by our Maverick Medical Education trainees and medical professionals across the country, is the use in identifying and working through cardiac issues with our patients.
