About Our Guest

He has worked in a number of facilities, ranging from outpatient clinics to level 1 trauma centers. Brandon also teaches as an adjunct nursing professor, as well as an instructor of ACLS, BLS, PALS, and POCUS. He has worked to augment the role of POCUS in his community, using it at Urgent Care, the Emergency Department, and in outpatient services. His is also helping to establish and augment a POCUS education program out of Orlando, and has taught POCUS for populations such as nurses, advanced practice providers, EMTs, and residents. Brandon visits Peru annually to work in community clinics around Trujillo and Ollantaytambo. In this role, he began introducing the concept of POCUS in the hopes of bringing greater services and access to populations with greater health disparities.
Brandon is a current Doctoral student as well, with the intention of building a more formalized and intensive POCUS program as part of his Doctoral project. As part of this, he recently published an article that speaks to the utility of POCUS, and how more disciplines should consider adopting it as part of their practice. Brandon’s wife is also currently in school to be a nurse practitioner, and has been dabbling with the use of ultrasound herself. Outside of Brandon’s medical roles, he and his wife spend a large amount of time traveling. They live in a rural area with a menagerie of dogs, cats, and chickens. Brandon is also a triathlete, currently training for an Ironman, and a snowboarder and snowmobiler in the winter.
