This 3-day course is designed to help clinicians develop diagnostic skills in managing critically unwell patients in all settings.

This will cover eFAST, AAA, DVT, FELS and Lung. This course utilises multi-system scanning and clinical reasoning to help with diagnosis and augment clinical decision making.

Previous experience with ultrasound is advised but not essential. This course gives you the opportunity for hands-on scanning and also discussion of cases to ensure confidence in applying these skills in clinical practice. This course is aimed at Emergency, ICU, Anaesthetics, Rural specialists and trainees who wish to further develop their ultrasound skills in critical care.

Small groups, high number of faculty and a large proportion of the course dedicated to actual scanning ensures real hands-on experience.

Topics covered include:

  • Ultrasound physics and equipment;
  • Shocked patient assessment (RUSH, eFAST, AAA, DVT, FELS & Lung);
  • Transthoracic echocardiographic views and imaging planes.


The objectives of this critical care course are:

  • Utilise multi-system scanning to diagnose and augment clinical decision making e.g. cause of shocked stage (cardiogenic, obstructive, distributive, hypovolemic).
  • Integrate ultrasound findings and answer clinical questions based on assessment.
