Russ Horwitz, MD - Chair

2014-2015 has been a big year for pediatric point-of-care ultrasound.

  • The first pediatric ultrasound textbook Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound  (Doniger S, Ed., Cambridge University Press, 2014) was published with leaders in PEM POCUS authoring chapters.
  • The PEM POCUS guidelines led by Jennifer Marin and Resa Lewiss were published in Pediatrics and Annals of Emergency Medicine. These guidelines were reviewed and approved by: the AAP, ACEP, SAEM, and WINFOCUS.
  • A long-term sustainable educational initiative was approved and started with the first phase, a full-day ultrasound course at the AAP NCE in October 2015. Future goals will include education through ACEP and the PEM Fellows meeting, as well as online education
