FM/GP Ultrasound.....Awesome!  Currently I'm flying to Hawaii to teach a FM residency bedside ultrasound and as I go over my presentations I'm struck by how INCREDIBLY useful ultrasound is for a GP/FM doc.  I mean yes, we in the ED benefit immensely from the RUSH, EFAST, echo in codes, and lots of things that GPs probably would use ultrasound less for.  However, I'm finding myself jealous of how much these doctors will get to use ultrasound in day to day practice for things like MSK injuries, aortic screening, and DVTs.  Yes, I do those things as well, but mainly just for fun.  I have 24/7 access to X-ray/CT/MRI/radiology US and I admit that I order a lot of X-rays on things that I could ultrasound just because it saves me time and our ED is super crowded and I don't feel I have the extra 5 min (sad, I know).  
The difference that these modalities will make for the GP docs, though, is fantastic!  They don't have MRI/CT/xray in their office and now they're gonna be able to take care of a huge array of problems they would have probably had to refer out before.  Things like "largish" abscesses, minor fxs, possible kidney stones, DVTs, and aortic screening they'll be able to handle in their office.  
If we made a meaningful push to train all med students, including our future primary care doctors, in bedside ultrasound we could become an incredibly more efficient healthcare system.  
I'm inspired by these GP/FM docs who are committing to learn this and take better care of their patients.
Other GP/FM docs out there?  Tell us your ultrasound stories.  How does it make you a better doctor and let you both take better care and use less resources. #twt

Let's train our med students with 21st century skills: http://www.ultrasoundpodcast.com/2013/01/ultrasound-in-medical-education/

I have the same problem guys. It's not available in Indian iTunes Store. For some reason, I've not been able to play videos from iBook version of volume. Would really appreciate your help.

Introduction
Why an Ultrasound Podcast? - Basically because no one else was doing it! Mike and I both really wanted to listen to a well done ultrasound podcast similar to the podcasts out there such as EMRAP, EMcrit, and ERCAST. However, it wasn’t out there, so after our Fellowship training (University of Utah) we decided to do it ourselves.
