Point-of-care ultrasound is an essential diagnostic skill for providers who resuscitate critically ill patients as part of their practice. The Stony Brook Emergency Ultrasound Division designed this conference as an introduction and refresher for physicians and advanced practice providers. Using both didactic and hands-on sessions, this course covers common point-of-care ultrasound exams that are directly relevant to providing patient care in the emergency department and critical care setting.
