The Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute designates this internet activity enduring material for a maximum of 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Introduction to Critical Care Ultrasound Virtual Conference provides participants a strong foundation to perform the core critical care ultrasound applications as outlined in the ACEP and WINFOCUS ultrasound practice guidelines. These courses are taught by leading critical care/emergency medicine ultrasound experts that incorporate comprehensive lectures, interactive case presentations, system optimization, and needle guidance sessions. The structure of the course is a combination of live lectures and interactive case studies to enable the learner to immediately begin integrating the skills learned into clinical practice.
For the most comprehensive Critical Care Ultrasound education, combine the Introductory level course with the Advanced Emergency/Critical Care Ultrasound program to augment scanning skills and expand diagnostic/interventional services, improve patient safety and satisfaction.
