POCUS 2-Minute Video Challenge

Section leaders came up with a fun POCUS 2-Minute Video Challenge. We invited our POCUS community to create a 2-minute video teaching the audience something about POCUS. We kept the prompt broad so we could see the full creativity of our ultrasound educators. After submission, the ACEP EUS Officers along with two ultrasound FOAMed creators selected the top five videos based on teaching effectiveness, accuracy, and innovation. The Challenge was announced to the US Section elist in early July and teams had until August 14 to submit. The top three videos, as voted on during the meeting, won gift cards.

Eleven videos were received. The top five videos were played during the Ultrasound Section meeting at ACEP23 and attendees used a QR code for voting. The Winners are:
