Emergency faculty words of wisdom

Ultrasound training has come a long way in the past 10 years. Initially seen as a tool useful in very limited settings, and available to a limited clinical audience, it has now evolved to become an almost essential tool in the armamentarium of the front-line acute care clinician. But unlike almost any other modality, clinical point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) is one of the most highly operator-dependant skills, limited by time constraints, user experience and misleading images known as artifacts.
To become proficient in PoCUS requires a lot of time devoted to both the theoretical and practical aspects of ultrasonography, especially if the clinician wants to become proficient in all aspects of PoCUS. Fortunately, most clinicians do not require (or need) such extensive exposure, and this “Essentials” course is designed to give the novice practitioner a solid grounding in the basics of acute point-of-care ultrasound.We will ensure that you come away from the course with a well-founded grounding in the basic techniques, and that these techniques lay the foundation for a safe and effective ultrasound practice into the future.
