AHEC
This new term, "uberizing" or "uberization", has many different meanings. As I see the term used in articles, blogs, and ads it seems to have different interpretations. But, specifically, it should mean on-demand at-home care delivery. Will this bring back the house call?

Ultrasound Tip of the Month
AHEC
Central line identification and placement under ultrasound guidance has been extolled with many virtues, but it is not without complications. By using a transverse, or short axis approach to the vein only a portion of the needle is visible at any one time, and the view of the needle tip can be easily lost. This can lead to a misperception of the location of the needle tip and puncture of the posterior wall of the vein. The physician may think that he is visualizing the needle tip on ultrasound, when in fact it's only a portion of the shaft of the needle. This is particularly dangerous in patients in whom the vein directly overlies the artery or when the internal jugular is small and easily collapsing.

The sagittal/longitudinal views to find the vessels are strongly encouraged. You can see the bevel of the needle entering the skin all the way to the anterior vessel wall in question.
