The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is introducing a number of improvements and innovations for the 2014 Critical Care Ultrasound programs to enhance the experience of attendees. This summer, SCCM has added a dedicated Critical Care Ultrasound – Pediatric course. The new workshop is designed specifically for ultrasound clinicians caring for critically ill or injured infants and children in the intensive care unit (ICU). This course includes expanded vascular, lung and volume hands-on training skill stations with targeted “Pediatric Rapid Response” and “Unexpected Congenital Heart Disease” case discussions.
An hour of new clinical cases has been added to the agenda to enhance Critical Care Ultrasound and Advanced Critical Care Ultrasound, which both focus on the critically ill or injured adult patient. For all three courses, this year’s skill stations will include not only demonstrations on human models, but also simulation software to show pathology.
The 2014 summer ultrasound courses will be held August 17 to 19, 2014, at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park, in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
