    A number of years ago I lost a close friend who died of a pulmonary embolism secondary to a DVT that he was seen for by a PA and two physicians. It is so important to look beyond erythema, tenderness and a negative Homan's sign when trying to rule out a DVT. Homan's sign is as antique as your grandfathers model T Ford. Today as clinicians we have a responsibility to either order better and gold standard tests or know how to perform them ourselves. Here is a very important summer course for Rural Health Personnel to learn to perform Ultrasound Diagnostic Exams. If you are a cutting edge PA or NP than this is for you. PracticalPOCUS.com/CriticalAccess2019
