EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND MASTERCLASS
The Emergency Ultrasound MasterClass will further improve your bedside ultrasound skills and expand your ability in other areas, particularly critical care and echocardiography, to make fast decisions for critically-ill patients with cardiac and pulmonary pathologies.
After completing the Emergency MasterClass, you will have deepened your knowledge of bedside cardiac, DVT, soft tissue, MSK, and ocular ultrasound exams, with an emphasis on using ultrasound during resuscitation and for procedural guidance.
The Emergency Ultrasound MasterClass is designed to expand on the lessons taught in the Emergency BachelorClass by focusing on echocardiography, critical care, and resuscitation.
The class begins with an introduction to Doppler technology and how it can improve your ability to accurately and efficiently make important assessments in critically ill patients. The next step will be learning the principles and techniques for pulmonary ultrasound, DVT ultrasound, and the evaluation of left and right ventricular function. All of this information is then distilled into an easy to understand resuscitation algorithm for patients with undifferentiated shock. You will also learn how to perform ultrasound-guided techniques for lumbar puncture, thoracentesis, paracentesis, peritonsillar abscess drainage, pericardiocentesis, and transvenous pacemaker placement.
Furthermore, the course will guide you through the ultrasonic techniques for evaluating soft tissue and musculoskeletal pathologies and a comprehensive yet easy method for evaluating heart valve pathologies. Finally, a special chapter is dedicated to ocular ultrasound techniques and the evaluation of retinal detachment, vitreous haemorrhage, lens dislocation, and papilledema.
