​​Why I'm LOCUS for POCUS

I feel ultrasound is like the modern stethoscope. It's becoming a key part of medicine. Particularly working at SCGH ED and learning POCUS from some of the best, has encouraged me to get behind the probe and integrate ultrasound into my clinical practice.

Training & Education

I was born in China. Then moved to Belfast in Northern Ireland where I completed my Medical Undergraduate Degree. Currently I am enrolled in ED training with ACEM.


Why EMUGs?

Just couldn't turn down the chance to work with some of these amazing POCUS focused gurus.

 

When I grow up...

DR ANDREW TOFFOLI

MBBS (Hons) MMedSci FACEM CCPU


​​Why I'm LOCUS for POCUS

It's hard not to see the value of POCUS with the amazing support and mentors available in WA. I started my POCUS journey in SEED sessions over 10 years ago and have remained a staunch SEED and POCUS advocate ever since. A year long fellowship under Dr Adrian Goudie in 2011 cemented my ongoing interest. I continue to utilise POCUS during every shift to help make procedures safer and more effective and to make time urgent diagnoses.

Training & Education

Born, bred and trained in WA, with an 18 month sojourn in Ireland


Why EMUGs?

I am attracted to the idea of promoting POCUS to the ED masses, ideally by providing an interesting and interactive environment. Plus, you can't say "No" to Gaynor!

When I grow up...

An astronaut, then a professional sportsman - then reality set in!

DR SALAH AL-SHAWI

M.B.Ch.B FACEM CCPU

​​Why I'm LOCUS for POCUS

Introduced to Point of Care Ultrasound while working in Malaysia at the UKMMC, where every ED trainee had to do eFAST, AAA, and Basic ECHO, since then it just made more sense to see pathologies rather listen and feel. I was fortunate to do an ultrasound special skill rotation in Royal Perth Hospital directly supervised by an amazing, enthusiastic team. I am very passionate to keep working with the ED community and to make POCUS part of every patient assessment in the ED.

Why EMUGs?

All the wonderful people involved in EMUGs. Also, you can't say no to Tennika.
