Do the know the amount of injury among ultrasound technicians

Posted

particularly among the echocardiographer. I know this isn't related directly but I get such great responses on here and I think it's because nurses know the ins and outs.

Injury to whom? The person performing the teat? the patient? How often injury requires an ultrasound?

What exactly are you asking?

There is a high degree of injury to shoulder, arm and back areas over a number of years with any sonographer. making sure to have equipment that will swivel easily and pushes easily help to ease the injury rate.

OP, what are you talking about?
