POINT OF CARE ULTRASOUND FOCUSCLASS
With the Point of Care Ultrasound FocusClass you will become skilled in the use of handheld ultrasound devices and ultrasound exams in your clinical setting. You will save critical time in making a diagnosis - even if you currently have little or no experience in the use of ultrasound.
After completing the Point Of Care Ultrasound FocusClass, you will be ready to successfully apply hand-held ultrasound in your point of care environment. You will have a broad understanding of instrumentation, ultrasound anatomy and pathology.
Point of Care Ultrasound can be applied in many scenarios including: dyspnea, peripheral edema, chest-, abdominal-, pelvic- and joint-pain, as well as in detecting pregnancy. At the same time, diagnostic ultrasound devices have become increasingly powerful, portable, and affordable.
The Point of Care Ultrasound FocusClass will allow you to strategically incorporate these benefits into your clinical practice – whether you work in a hospital, your own office or in a remote location.
Using handheld ultrasound devices, we demonstrate how ultrasound can be applied in examining many of your patients and cover general ultrasound instrumentation, imaging planes and the anatomy of the various organ systems. Furthermore, we will explain the echo appearance of important pathologies such as pleural effusion, left ventricular dysfunction, pericardial effusion, aortic aneurysms, cholecystitis and urinary tract obstructions. You will even learn how to detect a pregnancy with ultrasound.
You will be supported with many tips and tricks, graphics, and explanations of ultrasound anatomy on models that will make it easy for you to learn ultrasound.
