Description

The Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) now supports all trainees to understand and perform a range of simple bedside ultrasound scans. This three-day introductory PoCUS course refreshes your ultrasound skills in critical illness.

We revise the simple protocols that identify major heart pathologies, common lung conditions, and the eFAST exam. The eFAST exam has utility far beyond unstable trauma, it introduces you to the optimal windows for viewing the solid organs of the abdomen. Those who practise eFAST scanning will find it easy to learn to advance to kidneys, gallbladder and uterus.

Short courses start your credentialing and journey to competence. However, competence requires extensive practice – but with this course you will know what, how and where to start. You will be able to recognise ultrasound anatomy and interpret other people’s scans. You will set yourself up to expand your PoCUS repertoire.
