If you had to pick between "transcutaneous" and "telescopic", which would win?

My guess - no screen, all interpretation by AI, probe is a series of stickers a la ECG.

I love it. Don't like to use a linear probe - signal attentuated by the time it reaches the mid-tonsil. Curvilinear best, phased array acceptable. If we miss a few small collections, who's to say that's clinically important? PS - what makes it "telescopic"?

My 5yo daughter has been an ultrasound teaching model many times. Turns out she learned it by watching.

Or - place IV, give ketamine, external manual reduction?

I want to defend . Isn't the whole history of EM about increasing our skill set? At points we were told that we shouldn't intubate, or sedate, or do ECMO, or do ultrasound. Maybe marsupialization under propofol in the ED should be a skill we aspire to?

Visible lung. I think I like visible lung. "An area of visible lung is seen in the R ant view, max 2x2cm, with static air bronchograms". Classy.

But not "consolidation"! Too connected with "pneumonia" from CXR terminology. Indurated lung? Visible lung? Hard lung?

I think we should use the term HARD LUNG for hepatized areas on lung , where we can't tell atelectasis vs pneumonia.

What about ultrasound guided intra-appendix anesthetic injection, followed by intra-appendix antibiots, followed by discharge with PO ABX? I swear I will one day....
