This course is designed to cover point-of-care ultrasound for Healthcare Providers. Live demonstrations, simulations, and didactic lectures will be used to provide a comprehensive and in-depth look at how and where medical ultrasound can effectively be used in point-of-care in an healthcare setting. The participant groups will have a 4:1 ratio of participants to experienced instructors who utilize POCUS in their hospital-based practices. Interactive didactic sessions will underscore how POCUS can be applied to many common clinical scenarios that arise on the general medicine wards.
Participants will learn to obtain images of the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and vascular structures and practice interpretation of normal and abnormal images with discussion of how to appropriately integrate POCUS findings into clinical decision-making.
