* You must be logged in to purchase event tickets.
The goal of the course is to provide participants with the opportunity to obtain AT LEAST 50 bedside ultrasound scans in the following areas:
• FAST (right upper quadrant, left upper quadrant, suprapubic views)
• PERICARDIUM (from subxiphoid approach)
• Core LUNG (pneumothorax, hemothorax/pleural effusion)
• 1st Trimester OBSTETRICS
This course ensures that one third of the required scans will have pathology with free fluid, AAAs,pericardial effusions, pleural effusions, and first trimester pregnancies on real patients as well as integrating clinical cases with ultrasound simulators. Competency in these areas of point of care ultrasound has been recognized as being a valuable part of the clinical evaluation of various clinical presentations. The scans obtained during this course are recognized by the Canadian Point of Care Ultrasound Society (CPoCUS), formerly known as Canadian Emergency Ultrasound Society (CEUS); and can count toward IP recognition by this Canadian organization if the applicant wishes to pursue CPoCUS credentialing at a later date (http://www.cpocus.ca) . CPoCUS will offer full (FAST/cardiac/aorta/1st trimester OB/core lung) or limited IP status depending on the participants’ request, their location of practice, and their provincial College policies.
