What's the difference between signing up for an RSS Feed versus Email?

If you sign up for an RSS feed, you will be notified immediately once we've posted something about ultrasound tips, products, and more. It will show you a headline and excerpt from the article that you can click if you want to read more. If you don't know what an RSS feed is, see the section below.

If you sign up for an email notification, you will receive a stylized email newsletter delivered straight to your email account highlighting the latest news including ultrasound tips, products, and more. You will receive this newsletter at designated times (monthly, quarterly, etc.). This format is similar to other email newsletters you get from other websites.

Can I sign up for both methods?

Yes, we encourage it in fact. RSS feeds are great way to stay in the loop and quickly scan articles to read at your convenience. An email newsletter will include just the highlights that occurred since the last time you received one. It may include additional information not published through the RSS feed.


All about RSS

What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". Many people describe it as a "news feed" that you subscribe to. Basically, you'll be notified anytime a website is updated with information that pertains to the RSS feed you have subscribed to. It is a way online for you to get a quick list of the latest story headlines from all your favorite websites and blogs all in one place.

Subscribing to RSS feeds

"Subscribing" to an RSS feed simply means that you are telling that website, "Send me your story headlines." It's like subscribing to a magazine or newsletter. Instead of getting a magazine or email, you will just get a list of headlines sent to your RSS reader. If the headline looks interesting to you, all you have to do is click on the headline and you'll be sent to the whole story.

Where can I get an RSS reader?

Some browsers, such as the current versions of Firefox and Safari have built in RSS readers. If you're using a browser that doesn't currently support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available on the web. You can even use many email client's such as Mac's Mail.

How do I subscribe to Emergency Ultrasound Consultants RSS Feed?

The first step is to choose an RSS reader. Each reader has a slightly different way of adding a new feed, also called a "channel". Follow the directions for your reader but, in most cases, here's how it works:

  1. Click on the RSS Feed link and if you don't already have a RSS Feed Reader, you'll come to a page that shows you the actual feed in your browser.
  2. From your web browser's address bar, copy the URL (web address). Our feed is http://feeds.feedburner.com/emergencyultrasoundconsultants
  3. Paste that URL into the "Add New Channel" section of the reader. The RSS feed will start to display and regularly update the headlines for you.
