Overview:

Ultrasound is established as an essential tool in the critically ill patient. Current literature supports its use displaying decreased wait times, expedited diagnosis and treatment, and improved patient outcomes. Since initial implementation, the use of emergency ultrasound has grown rapidly to include studies for both diagnostic purposes and procedural guidance. Diagnostic emergency ultrasound is an established tool in the evaluation of biliary disease, aortic aneurysm, ectopic pregnancy, cardiac pathology, sepsis, pneumothorax, hemothorax, and the evaluation of the trauma patient for free fluid in the abdomen. Procedural ultrasound has been shown to increase success and decrease complications of paracentesis, pericardiocentesis, central and peripheral venous cannulation, and abscess incision and drainage. In addition to the established uses of ultrasound in the emergency setting, new indications continue to emerge. Participants in this course will receive an introduction to emergency ultrasound. The faculty are experts in the field of emergency ultrasound with a wide range of experience and clinical practice. Didactic sessions will focus on concise, useful information, images, and video. Most importantly, participants will have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills through handson teaching and practice on models under the guidance of experienced faculty and sonographers.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Our target audience is emergency physicians, critical care specialists, family practitioners, surgeons, physician's assistants, mid-level providers, and residents.
