We are pleased to present our annual critical care ultrasound pre-conference course at the Clinical Decision Making in Emergency Medicine symposium in Ponte Vedra, Florida on Wednesday, June 20. Each year this intensive, hands on course features ultrasound faculty from across the country working in small groups with live models and plenty of hands-on scanning time.
On March 22, 2012 the Division of Emergency Ultrasound will host its annual hands-on CME course at Mount Sinai. Targeted at clinicians in emergency and critical care settings, the course consists of presentations by national faculty and plenty of hands-on scanning with live models.
Basic to advanced topics covered
Organ system-based approach to bedside ultrasound use
Faculty with international experience in ultrasound education
Diagnostic applications as well as procedure guidance covered
Both experienced sonographers and neophytes will benefit from small group sizes and an interactive course design.
The book features more than 100 cases derived from the Model of Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on EKGs, CT scans, x-rays, and ultrasounds. Almost 300 illustrations complement the cases and highlight visual stimuli commonly encountered on the boards
There are chapters on approaching the oral board examination, pediatric pearls and pitfalls, common ED presentations and their management, procedure guidance, and hundreds of images to review.
“If preparation for the oral board exam by simulation is your goal, I would definitely suggest this book; I know that I will be using it.”
