I started working in ZNA Middelheim Hospital in Antwerp in 1999 as an internal medicine/emergency/intensive care physician . From 2017 I only work in the emergency department.
I have a special interest in good clinical practice and rapid evaluation of the critically ill patient.
During my internal medicine training I became interested in the use of ultrasound to support the clinical work. After the WINFOCUS course in Rome in 2010, I became very interested in the game-changing use of lung ultrasound and the use of ultrasound in every critically ill patient.
Ten years after the Winfocus course I’m more than ever convinced ultrasound in the ER is a part of standard good clinical practice.
