Hein Lamprecht is an emergency physician currently practicing in Cape Town, South Africa. Over there the EDs are always stacked to the brim with high acuity cases, which is absolutely bliss for a POCUS zealot.
He created and educated many national and international POCUS training programs, including for many African countries as a founding member of the African Federation of Emergency Medicine. Hein is also an avid POCUS researcher with 45 peer review publications, 21 plenary addresses at international conferences and chairing 46 international POCUS workshops across 4 continents. Hein received multiple awards with the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM), Amin Kazzi Emergency Medicine leadership award in 2019 the most recent.
His special interests include the effective use of POCUS to cut through all the clinical pollution to get to the patient’s management plan ASAP, cardiac/lung/shock POCUS, infectious diseases POCUS, and e-learning POCUS education in limited resourced settings. Hein loves anything he’s able to do outdoorsy in the African sun and strictly lives by the philosophy of Ubuntu.
