Looking to upgrade to the Butterfly iQ+, but I'm not going to need two probes, and nor am I independently wealthy, so my old iQ could be yours! $1000, with optional hard case ($99 value), original charger included. Lightning (iPhone/iPad) connector, 15 months old, works great, original price $2000, which is the full price of the new iQ+. Does not work with all lightning Apple devices--the display device processor is used to render the images, so it needs a relatively current device. You will also need to buy a cloud membership from Butterfly to take full advantage of it. Ultrasound gel not included, but Amazon has that cheap.
If you're a student in a program that teaches POCUS, this may give you a leg up on your peers. If you're a PA wanting to carry this with you to an austere environment, it's pretty slick. Or, if you want a device to check lungs for COVID, it'll do that too.
I am applying for 2021-22 cycle. I graduated recently and don't have any formal work experience. I am tired of applying to jobs, cold-calling clinics and hospitals for jobs. I even offered to work for free. I am licensed (EKG, and phleb) then also I am getting rejected. Nobody wants to hire anymore, they don't even need free services. I am a person of color, I hope that is not the reason.
I am a PA in Massachusetts working in orthopedic surgery, We just obtained an Ultrasound machine at our private practice so that I might start doing ultrasound guided injections.
1.) Does anyone know what the MA laws are regarding PA's formally documenting interpretations of ultrasounds for diagnostic purposes?
2.) What point do you have to check in order to be a reimbursed procedure?
3.) Any tips for keeping sterile technique with the gel?
So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
(Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)
Thanks in advance!
