Study an algorithmic approach to the ultrasound evaluation of common clinical scenarios, including:
• Hemodynamic instability and shock states
• Acute respiratory failure and dyspnea
• Acute renal failure
• Cardiac arrest
Participants will learn to perform a standardized approach to ultrasound-guidance for vascular, pleural, and peritoneal procedures using state-of-the-art simulators.

Conference Objectives :
After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to:
• Discuss the knowledge base required to perform whole-body ultrasonography in critically ill patients.
• Demonstrate and practice skills for integrating bedside echocardiography with general critical care ultrasonography.
• Practice existing ultrasound protocols for the diagnosis and management of critically ill patients.
• Develop a management strategy for patients with shock and respiratory failure using a whole-body ultrasound approach.
• Perform ultrasound-guidance for key procedures such as vascular access, pleural drainage, and peritoneal drainage as applied in critically ill patients.
• Perform image acquisition of the thorax, abdomen, and vascular structures.
• Interpret ultrasound images of the thorax, abdomen, and vascular structures.
• Demonstrate ultrasound-guided vascular access, pleural drainage, and peritoneal drainage using state-of-art simulators and task trainers.
