Hocus Pocus - the Magic Point of Care Ultrasound in Emergencies
An interactive discussion of point of care ultrasound, with a focus on the application of both abdominal and thoracic focused assessment using sonography for trauma as well as lung ultrasound. This will focus on the application of POCUS in all emergency cases, not just those involving trauma, to allow detailed assessment of the cardio-respiratory system.
Delegates will then have the opportunity to practice obtaining these skills on live animals and develop a systematic approach allowing for rapid assessment of future cases.
Topics to be covered:
- Application of POCUS in the emergency patient using a standardised approach.
- Utility of POCUS in monitoring or carrying out procedures in critical patients.
- The practical application of POCUS
