This learning series with Tom Towey takes a focused practical approach to the recognition of life-threatening conditions and their stabilisation in first opinion practice. It looks at initial assessment, diagnosis, and stabilisation of common emergency presentations using the facilities typically available.

A practical session on Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) highlights its value in triage of emergency patients and diagnosis of various conditions including haemoabdomens and pleural effusions.

Common pitfalls that occur in practice are also discussed and useful tips given to help you feel more confident when treating the emergency patient!
