Qpath ICU Intro Video 1 - Qpath Flow

Here's the first in a 5-part series of short introductory videos on how to use Qpath, specifically as it relates to the ICU environment. There will be significant overlap with Qpath use in the ED, but with some important differences. Stay tuned for another series of videos specific to ED application.

Qpath, by the way, is a wireless image archiving system that facilitates POCUS learning (with easy image review and portfolio building), and improves patient safety (by allowing quality assurance, archiving, etc.).
