Focused ultrasound examinations in the critical care setting have become an extension of the clinical assessment because of their rapid, precise detection capabilities. Assist in the immediate management of patients by learning or enhancing point-of-care ultrasound skills.
Obtain the realistic training needed to perform and interpret ultrasound imaging with the Society of Critic al Care Medicine’s (SCCM) comprehensive, two-day Critical Care Ultrasound or Pediatric Critical Care Ultrasound course. In each, participants benefit from guided, focused skill stations and interactive presentations to reinforce key learning points. Extensive faculty coverage ensures a significant hands-on experience for each participant.
In SCCM’s one-day Advanced Critical Care Ultrasound course, fundamental echocardiographic skills and knowledge are expanded and focus on the specialty-specific use of echocardiography in the management of the critically ill patient. Participants explore the noninvasive management of the hemodynamically unstable patient.
The summer ultrasound courses will be held August 17 to 19, 2014, at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. For further details and to register, visit the ultrasound courses web page.
