(L-r) Instructor Kelsey Skulnuc watches as Michaela Daase plays the role of a patient needing a tube inserted into her neck and Dr. John Soles looks at an ultrasound monitor to see where to place it.
The three were part of a HOUSE (hands-on ultrasound skills enhancement) workshop held in Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital last Saturday.
The course is designed with rural physicians in mind and gives them skills and practice at using bedside ultrasound. The technology is particularly useful in the emergency room.
All four local physicians participated, as well as three physicians from Valemount and McBride, two medical students and the DHMH x-ray technician. CSS students were the ultrasound models for the day. Photo by Keith McNeill
