Description:
This two-day program, has been developed for Intensive Care, Emergency Medicine and Respiratory Physicians interested to further their knowledge and application of ultrasound techniques in the examination of the parenchymal lung and pleural diseases in intensive care units, emergency departments and respiratory ward settings.

As lung ultrasound is one of the new developments in ultrasound application, this course aims to provide the participant with understanding of ultrasonography physics and application to lung ultrasound; identification of different lung pathology based on lung ultrasound images/patterns.

The course also involves teaching how to examine the pleura and how to use real-time ultrasound needle guidance in thoracocentesis pleural drainage using our thoracocentesis phantom. There is an emphasis on the practical aspects of these topics with comprehensive “hands-on” tuition, led by expert sonographers and a respiratory clinician. Tuition is conducted in small groups and limited to 4 students to allow for adequate time to practice.

Course Content:
• Physical principles knobology
• Probe manipulation techniques
• Sonographic appearances terminology
• Needle guidance techniques
• Pleural examination techniques
• Scanning techniques for Pneumothorax
• BLUE protocol and lung ultrasound patterns of images
• Brief introduction to diaphragm excursion measurement as well as echocardiography

Course Content:

• Probe manipulation techniques
• Sonographic appearances terminology
• Needle guidance techniques
• Pleural examination techniques
• Scanning techniques for Pneumothorax
• BLUE protocol and lung ultrasound patterns of images
• Brief introduction to diaphragm excursion measurement as well as echocardiography

Course Objectives:
• Identify the parameters of safe application of ultrasound in medical diagnosis
• Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while
performing lung and pleural ultrasonography
• Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical
questions
• Recognise the sonographic appearances of normal and abnormal structures required to answer common clinical
questions
• Perform Basic Cardiac, Guided Vascular Access and Lung ultrasounds
• Interpret images from normal adult volunteers
• Recognise the variants and abnormalities from presentations & case-based learning
• Document ultrasound findings
• Apply protocols required in all examinations discussed
• Incorporate the ultrasound skills with the clinical situation to make appropriate management decisions regarding
respiratory and pleural illnesses
• Recognize the limitations of ultrasound
• Judge when to on-refer a patient for formal scanning

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
