The Mount SinaiÂ DepartmentÂ of Emergency Medicine hosted its annual ultrasound CME conference on April 25.Â Faculty, fellows, nurses and PAs from a number of institutions and specialties took part in our tenth annualÂ course.
The course was directed by Bret Nelson, MD who introducedÂ ultrasound physics and machine controls, followed by lectures on assessment ofÂ airway and breathing (Jim Tsung, MD, MPH), cardiovascular ultrasoundÂ (JenniferÂ Huang, DO), trauma evaluationÂ (Phil Andrus, MD) and procedure guidance (Amy Sanghvi, MD).
After lunch an intensive hands-on session with live models, task simulators and sim cases rounded out the experience.
The first World Congress on Ultrasound in Medical Education has come to a close.Â The event was a great success, with excellent plenary sessions in the morning, hands-on teaching in the afternoon and southern hospitality in the evening.Â It was nice to see so many familiar faces, and although we couldn’t capture everyone, we had to record a few for posterity.
