Essentials of Point-of-Care Ultrasound – “The EDE Book”
Print book available here, eBook available on iBooks
Since 2001, The Emergency Department Echo Course and The EDE 2 Course have taught EDE (pronounced “Eddie”) to over 17000 physicians. The most distinctive aspect of The EDE Courses has been the focus on image generation. When emergency physicians first began investigating the possibility of using ultrasound themselves, a big secret was concealed from them: image interpretation is easy. The real challenge is image generation: putting the image on the screen. Before The EDE Courses, physicians learned image generation mostly by trial and error. EDE brought a rigorous methodology to the scanning of each area of the body, dramatically reducing the time needed to master this new skill.
Essentials of Point-of-Care Ultrasound combines The EDE Course manuals which have been written and re-written for over a decade to give emergency physicians the clearest and most concise approach to emergency ultrasound. This “how-to” guide book contains over 700 illustrations, photos, and ultrasound images which show you how to perform the scan and how to recognize positive and negatives images. As well, the book focuses on how you can incorporate these images into your clinical decision-making.
