Conference Brochure

Basic Echocardiography in Life Support (BELS) - 1 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held on Nov 13, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 30 Points.

Is there tamponade, right heart failure, left heart failure, massive pulmonary embolism or hypovolemia? These are five vital questions in the acute care of critical illness. The Basic Echocardiography in Life Support (BELS) course teaches you simple heart views to answer these questions, and how to cross reference with IVC scanning, to reinforce your interpretation. With case based discussion, you will practice recognising life-threatening pathology, and discuss how it affects your ongoing management. This is not a comprehensive echocardiography course, but it is an important beginning. BELS will teach you the paradigms that underpin problem based multisystem scanning. Through the day you will practice the skill on different patients. By the end of the day, you should be able to scan, label, save and interpret a set of scans that support your clinical decision. This one day-course is all about learning what you don’t know, what you need to know, and what you need to practice safely.

Course Content:-
• Introduction of physical principles of ultrasound and probe manipulation
• Basic Echocardiography in Life Support (BELS)
