Become competent in Emergency & Critical Care Ultrasound

Emergency POCUS is one of the fastest-growing applications of ultrasound. With POCUS ultrasound, you save valuable time in emergencies. It allows you to rule in (or rule out) critical diagnoses and facilitates treating and managing critically ill patients. This online video course provides the "essentials" of emergency ultrasound. We will cover theoretical and practical aspects of common and often critical pathologies, as well as several potentially life-threatening conditions.

In addition, we show you how to image patients in emergencies. An entire chapter is devoted to the eFAST protocol used for trauma and acute abdominal pain, and you will learn to use a "FOCUSed" approach to image the heart. Moreover, each chapter features video demonstrations where our faculty provides hands-on explanations and tips to boost your imaging skills. Finally, we provide hundreds of ultrasound examples and cases to help you put your findings into a clinical context.

This course is for all healthcare professionals who work in an emergency department (ED), Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and for all those who see critically ill patients.

Chapters

1

Introduction

 

Find out why POCUS ultrasound is so important in critical care scenarios, which approach you should use and which instrumentation you should use. In this chapter we will also show you how to apply POCUS ultrasound in cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

2

Heart

 

We will introduce you to the basic echocardiographic views used in emergency sonography and teach you the essentials around LVF and RVF, acute coronary syndrome, pericardial effusion, cardiac tamponade, and valvular heart disease.

3

Lung

 

Learn how to approach lung ultrasound for detecting and differentiating consolidations, pleural effusion, and pulmonary edema and how to diagnose pneumothorax with ultrasound.

4

Aorta

 

Master the topic of aortic pathologies, learn to quickly recognize aneurysms and dissections and make sure you don't miss the diagnosis of aortic rupture. Many ultrasound image examples and live demos will guide you through this topic.

5

Pulmonary Embolism - DVT

 

Did you know that there are direct and indirect signs of pulmonary embolisms that you can find in lung ultrasound? We teach you how to link them to your clinical findings. We also demonstrate how to diagnose or rule out a deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremity.

6

Clinical eFAST in abdominal pain

 

Learn how to use the eFAST protocol in trauma settings and in a clinically oriented ultrasound of the heart, lungs, and abdomen in patients with acute abdominal pain, chest pain, or dyspnea.

7

Hypotension, shock and syncope

 

Find out why echo is essential in hypotension, syncope, and different kinds of shock! We teach you a simple approach to this broad topic and put everything into context with many case examples.
