Conference Brochure

The Emergency Ultrasound Course for ER Physicians, Hospitalists and Nurses is organized by Keith Mauney and Associates Ultrasound Training Institutes and will be held during Mar 03 - 04, 2018 at Homewood Suites by Hilton Dallas-Irving-Las Colinas, Irving, Texas, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is Intensivists, Emergency Physicians, New Sonographers, ER & Critical Care Physicians, Nurses and Paramedics, Allied Health Professionals, Anesthesiologists & PACU Nurses, Veterinary Medicine, Research & Medical Device Professionals.

Conference Description :
The most in-depth introduction to bedside ultrasound possible. Requested by the Attending Faculty at Harvard Medical School and the Mayo Clinic, this course goes deeper than just a protocol, all in a weekend. Clear your understanding of ultrasound-guided vascular access. It all serves as the platform for your further competence in any clinical application.

This is a very pleasant and practical, low-pressure approach to the complex science of acoustic and electronic engineering physics principles underlying bedside ultrasound. It cuts through the clutter and theory to make clear sense of all controls, principles, and findings. Our focus is on the protocols and proper system controls for all current bedside applications. We start at the bedside in the first hour and continue throughout the course. After hours the Scan Lab is open for your optional self-guided practice of technique and machine controls on yourself or your peers from class. You can even bring your own equipment to fine-tune your own use of it.

Conference Objectives are :
• Describe the systematic process by which ultrasound is generated, detected and processed into an image for analysis.
• Relate the physical phases of the acoustic wave to tissue response with emphasis on mechanical and thermal index.
• Define and describe in layman's terms each of the principal vocabulary terms pertaining to ultrasound physics and instrumentation.
• Demonstrate proper probe grasp and manipulation technique for proper ergonomics and maximum dexterity.
• Apply a tactile approach to scanning to maximize stereotactic feedback.Translate 3-D anatomical relationships into 2-D reasoning and vice-versa by applying core principles of abstract spatial reasoning.
• Incorporate a full-field method of critical conspicuity to evaluate the entire content of an image immediately.
• Describe the principal controls of the ultrasound imaging system and effectively use each to optimize findings.
• Demonstrate proper use of overall and selective gain, depth and focus to optimize the acquired image.
• Set up image display controls on any monitor to maximize input dynamic range to output display capability properly optimized to the human eye.
• Make full use of all chroma and achromatic post-processing controls to amplify soft tissue definition and relate subsequent findings to soft tissue composition.
• Perform Doppler assessment of any vessel or valve using proper angle correction and display controls to maintain compliance with ICAVL Standards.
• Perform a visual inspection of the machine to identify any potential electrical or biohazard.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
