You heard it first on TOTAL EM! Host Chip Lange, also founder of the ultrasound education company Practical POCUS, is a fan of EB Medicine and our evidence-based journals and CME courses. In Episode #157 of his podcast, he featured content covered in the premiere issue of our Pediatric Trauma EXTRA!
