Course Description:
Study essential elements of critical care ultrasonography to advance your practice and your patient care. This intensive 3-day, hands-on learning experience will focus on three key elements:

• Image acquisition will be practiced on human models using high-quality ultrasound machines and supervised by experienced faculty. Training sessions give you practical, hands-on training with a 1:3 teacher-to-learner ratio, so you benefit from personal instruction.
• Image interpretation occurring during group sessions under the supervision of experienced faculty members offers relevant practice. Numerous ultrasound images demonstrating normal and pathologic findings will give you a comprehensive learning opportunity. As you improve your skills, you will be further challenged with unknowns and case-based image sets.
• Your knowledge base will be enhanced through pre-course study materials and lectures that focus on important aspects of critical care ultrasonography. Discussions will have immediate application within your practice.

Learning Objectives:
After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to:

• Discuss the knowledge base required to perform point of care ultrasonography.
• Incorporate the interpretation skills required for taking critical care ultrasonography into frontline management of the ICU.
• Identify appropriate uses of ultrasonography in pulmonary and critical care practice.
• Demonstrate appropriate image acquisition techniques required for critical care ultrasonography.
• Interpret image-based clinical cases.

Discount for nonphysicians, advanced practice providers, and physicians-in-training - $700.
