      Basic free online Point-of-Care ultrasound text from ACEP:  http://sonoguide.com

      A solid set of core lectures are the full lecture series of Chris Fox, Ultrasound Director at UC Irvine-- available on iTunes for free.  


      Below is a list of good free lectures to download and review on each of the main topics. There is much great material online, with one site- ultrasoundpodcast.com providing most of the quality lectures below. These are mostly direct links to the .m4v video files to download and many files are large (30-50 MB each) and may need to fully download before they are viewable, so if you are viewing these on your phone, make sure you are on a good WiFi connection.
