Event Details

This 2 day course covers the basics of point of care ultrasound for emergency medicine. Immerse yourself in the basics of POCUS and meet ACEM credentialing requirements for the core USS modalities.

You will leave knowing how to perform four core modalities; focussed echo in life support (FELS), extended focussed assessment with sonography in trauma (eFAST), ultrasound of the aorta and how to scan the lung and thorax.

There will be short didactic lectures combined with plenty of hands on scanning time as well as opportunities for image review and networking. The course is ideally suited for ACEM trainees who are beginning to use ultrasound in their practice, or any doctors working in acute medicine who want an introduction to ultrasound, or to reinvigorate their current practice. This course is also suitable for critical care, rural medicine and urgent care doctors and nurse practitioners.

Prior experience in point of care ultrasound is not needed.
