If you have mastered the basics of ultrasound, or have attended our Essentials Course, then the next step is to upskill.The Advanced Course is designed to take your clinical emergency ultrasound practice to the next level, and to extend the knowledge and skills you have around the use of ultrasound in disease states, as well as exploring the tips, traps and pitfalls you need to know working on the floor. Please note that we assume you have experience in eFAST and AAA scanning as well as basic instrumentation capability

(you can always do our Essentials Course if you are starting out with these…).

Our aim is to have you scanning and making sound clinical decisions by the end of the course, and to help maintain your skills we offer an online ultrasound mentoring service so that you can have your images overseen by our experienced staff, and to get feedback that can be used as an electronic logbook for credentialing purposes.

The advanced course covers

    •  Image optimisation when things get tough
    •  System based scanning covering ultrasound anatomy, clinical reasoning, disease states and troubleshooting. Systems covered include:
    •  Hepatobiliary: Gallbladder disease (gallstones, cholecystitis)
