Description

Most clinicians ‘pick-up’ ultrasound guidance techniques in clinical work – few are formally taught. This ultrasound guided procedures course has been designed to give practitioners an understanding of ultrasound guided techniques, machine optimisation and includes tips and traps, anatomy familiarisation on real patient models and needling practice on phantoms. Small group practical sessions with experienced tutors will allow attendees the time to master these techniques in a stress free environment.

Objectives

The objectives of this ultrasound guided procedures course are:

  • Identify the parameters for the safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis;
  • Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ultrasound;
  • Practice hands-on ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical questions;
  • Perform ultrasound guided vascular access techniques on phantoms;
  • Perform ultrasound guided steep needle techniques for Paracentesis and Thoracentesis;
