Abdominal Procedures

If you are going to be practicing in a place where you won’t have CT or US (going abroad, perhaps…) or you just like knowing old school procedures, here is a video from the UCSD trauma team about diagnostic peritoneal lavage. I still prefer ultrasound. But interesting nonetheless.

Not the best video, but he goes over the anatomy and fine points of the procedure that you need to know to do a suprapubic aspiration for a urine sample in an infant.
