Ultrasound in Anaesthetics - 4 Day Course

Ultrasound in Anaesthetics - 4 day Course

This four day course is aimed at clinicians with particular interest in resuscitation, retrieval and critical care. Two days of cardiac and lung scanning will give you tools to assess a critically ill patient and then guide and monitor your management.

Two days specifically dedicated to regional analgesia will greatly expand your repertoire of peripheral nerve blocks, core and trunk blocks. With these new tools you can alleviate the pain of several critical procedures, transport your patient in comfort or reduce their fracture on site without
recourse to procedural sedation.

o Focused echo-cardiac ultrasound
o Lung ultrasound
o Regional upper & lower limb blocks
o Core & trunk blocks
o Needle Guidance techniques on phantoms


• Identify the parameters of safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis. 
• Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ltrasound. 
• Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills enabling you to answer relevant clinical questions. 
• To review relational sono-anatomy.
• To provide clinical support regarding clinical techniques when using ultrasound.
Participants will gain the confidence and knowledge to perform regional anaesthesia in various anatomical regions. Tuition is conducted in small groups.
