Abstract

During the tragedy in Haiti, I accidentally had the opportunity to perform a couple of ultrasounds that really made a difference for the patients I saw. In the next article I will share my unforgettable story that made me aware of the sum importance to learn about the use of these devices in those scenarios. I hope that my story will help the experts in ultrasound and the companies that build them, to develop guidelines and workshops to get knowledge in this wonderful piece of technology that I believe should be called the stethoscope of the future.
