  • Description

    Point Of Care UltraSound (POCUS) or Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma/Triage (FAST) have become essential imaging techniques in the triage of emergency patients.

This highly practical one-day course will cover scanning of the abdomen and the thorax and will teach you how to help diagnose (and treat) various conditions such as haemoabdomens and pleural effusions.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Basics of ultrasonography and the ultrasound machine
    • How to identify abdominal organs
    • Abdominal fluid assessment and pathology
    • Thoracic ultrasonography for pleural space diseases
    • Thoracic ultrasonography for pulmonary diseases
