ANZCA: Participants in the ANZCA and FPM CPD program may claim this this course under the Knowledge and skills activity Short format learning at 2 credits per hour Description: Resource limitation is not constrained to the third world. Austere environments occur in retrieval medicine, rural medicine, or after hours in regional hospitals. Informed use of point of care ultrasound can risk stratify many difficult decisions. Could this be an ectopic? Is this heart failure or COPD? Renal colic, cholecystitis or an aneurysm? Pneumothorax? Should I fluid load or diurese? Can I safely insert an intercostal catheter? How should I transport this patient? Previously the purview of radiology, all these questions can be answered at the bedside, or the roadside – with nothing more than a hand held ultrasound. This five day course provides a basic introduction to problem solving for these low risk-high stakes questions. This course targets important branch points in management decisions rather than a deep dive into any one system. Take these tools home, practise in your own environment, then work with us toward credentialing in those protocols that will have the highest yield in your job.
