In the evaluation and treatment of acute illness, seconds count. Focused bedside ultrasound has gained widespread use in emergency and critical care settings as an adjunct to physical examination and to aid in the performance of bedside procedures.

This intensive, hands-on course was designed with a critical care approach in mind, focusing on the utility of ultrasound in the evaluation of:

  • Airway assessment
  • Breathing (lung, pleura, pneumothoirax, pulmonary edema, etc.)
  • Circulation (Shock assessment, volume status, cardiac contractility)
  • Disability (Trauma assessment)
  • Procedure Guidance
