ULTRASOUND BASICS FOR MIDWIVES

learnHOW TO USE ULTRASOUND LIKE A PRO!

Have a butterfly or pocket ultrasound? This course will help orientate your use of the POCUS transducer while performing non-diagnostic exams in the office. Here you will learn best practices on how to hold the transducer (leading edge, transverse/sagittal (long) planes), where to place transducer for each trimester, angling and toggling, normal anatomy and organs orientation on screen, capacity of equipment (setting for exams in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester, M-mode, fetal heart sounds, measuring CRL, etc) and much more.

Midwives, what you don’t know, just might be endangering you and your client. Additionally, radiology reports can be confusing, so let’s talk more about what the radiologist “might” mean in the diagnostic reports you receive. This course is not meant to fully train or certify midwives to become ultrasound technologists, but to help them learn how to use the medical equipment they are already using.

MEET YOUR COURSE MENTOR

AMARIEE COLLINS

Amariee S. Collins, MPA, BS, RDMS (Abd, Ob/Gyn), RVT

Amariee (she/hers, non-gender role confirming) is a Registered Sonographer with American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) in Abdomen/General, Obstetric/Gynecology (RDMS-Ab/Ob/Gyn) and Vascular (RVT) from San Jacinto College with an Associates of Applied Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. She completed over 1100 clinical hours at three different hospitals in the greater Houston area starting in 2017. She started her sonography career at University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX in 2019 after graduation and upon passing three registries. Amariee was challenged to correlate MRI/CT/PET/X-ray/NM exams to find the smallest abnormality in the body. The systems that  were examined were integumentary, breasts/lymph nodes, chest wall, female and male sexual reproductive organs, all abdominal organs and cavities, thyroid and all related glands and nodes in the face and neck, vessels from those from the brain to the neck, neck to wrist, abdominal vessels to pelvic region to the ankles, muscles and other locations where cancer to be found but not in the bone. The population of cancer is vast from infants to the elderly. Amariee has also worked in the clinical setting at an Endocrinologist office, at Baylor, Scott & White hospital, Children’s Health and outpatient centers. Her experience is vast with procedures, inpatient/outpatient/OR/ER, protocols and standards set by Joint Commission Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. 

As she entered midwifery school and networked with the birth community, there was an expressed need for mobile ultrasound technologists. She decided to expand her ability to work outside of the medical industrial complex by starting her mobile sonography business. The exams are ordered by licensed professionals and read by a teleradiology group contracted with Amariee. This has allowed for many families to be served in a greater capacity with the restrictions of COVID-19 in the hospitals and outpatient centers.  Many midwives that have multiple needs for learning how to use their Point-Of-Care US (POCUS) transducers and decoding diagnostic ultrasound reports have contacted Amariee for training. She has identified a great need to train midwives in the basics of sonography, for safety of all parties involved. As a student midwife, Amariee currently provides hands on ultrasound training for midwives and other student midwives in the greater Cincinnati area. 

In her other endeavors, Amariee is a veteran of the United States Air Force, holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Health and Human Performance and Masters of Public Administration. A few positions she has held are budget analyst with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Secondary Science educator at Houston Independent School District and an AmeriCorps VISTA/VISTA Leader for Texas Impact. Amariee is a community member and builder no matter her location and has a passion for equity for all in the world which keeps her busy as she resides in Ontario, Canada.
