A year in Patagonia – Point of Care Ultrasound in limited-resource settings

Felipe Urriola

The geographical conditions of Chilean Patagonia translate into a unique challenge to emergency medicine. The population scatters around mountains, fjords and islands, while the only option to get a CT scan, operating theatre, or ICU lies within the regional referral centre. Consequently, the capacity to reach definitive diagnosis and treatment requires several hours of ambulance rally, making air retrieval the only viable option for life-threatening conditions. Furthermore, the decision of patient transfer itself is difficult, as it must be justified and weighed against the extreme weather or transport availability.

In such context, the introduction of point of care ultrasound has democratised access to diagnostic imaging. POCUS plays a determinant role in formulating a hypothesis in an otherwise obscure patient, and it can change therapeutical conducts earlier, potentially improving the outcome. In a limited-resource setting, POCUS is invaluable. This focused technique requires a limited amount of training which can even be self-taught, allowing its implementation by any healthcare provider.

Through case studies, this presentation highlights the potential of POCUS for improving patient care in austere environments and introduces a novel approach to training; a new world awaits.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
