So….we put the new iQ+ through its paces and I am very privileged to have Dr Russ Horowitz take us through a paediatric review using the device as well.
What did we think then……
The perspective from Adult Anaesthesia and Intensive care
Dr Jonny Wilkinson (Lead for Point of Care Ultrasound / Intensivist – Northampton UK)
Here it is, the long-awaited review of a much-anticipated upgrade of the highly successful iQ device. What did we think and should you go out and buy one …. is it the probe for all of your POCUS requirements?? We put the iQ+ through its paces within adult care (ICU, theatres, wards, ED, vascular access and nerve blocks!)

thanks for the updated review. I have been contemplating getting one for a while. However, there is no hospital contribution towards the cost and it would be purely my personal joy of using one that would prompt me to get it. As a anesthetist / critical care consultant myself I was wondering if you’ve tried it for deeper blocks as well? I tried out the 1st edition a while ago and found that transgluteal sciatic pictures or even a bit more deep distal sciatic blocks were hard to visualize…. what’s your take?
Thanks for taking the time,
The iQ+ is a fabulous device! I use it for ALL my blocks, including awake upper limb surgery, as well as lower limb arthroplasty👍👍
