Sgt. 1st Class David Hubler, the senior medic with 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Group (Airborne), practices placing a syringe in a vein on a training device while using a portable ultrasound machine for guidance during the Special Operations Medical Association's annual conference Dec. 15, in Tampa, Fla. Ultrasound can see patient's veins as well as a syringe entering an area, which helps ensure the needle is put in the right place.
