Description:

A ticket is required for participation. Register online here.

The Introduction to Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Workshop was developed to teach the basics of ultrasound physics and operation, as well as broadly applicable POCUS skills.  Designed to provide spaced repetition and to maximize hands-on practice, learners will practice focused cardiac ultrasound, lung ultrasound, DVT compression ultrasonography, and the extended Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (eFAST) exam. This course will utilize recorded pre-course content; brief, high-yield lectures; and hands-on practice to maximize learning and skill acquisition. 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Explain the basics of ultrasound physics and machine operation
⦁ Identify scope and indications for heart, lung, DVT compression ultrasonography, and eFAST POCUS exams
⦁ Contrast normal and abnormal images
⦁ Obtain POCUS images of the heart, lungs, deep venous system, right upper quadrant, left upper quadrant, and pelvis
⦁ Perform an eFAST examination
