2019 Yale Point of Care Ultrasound Course
Brought to you by the organizers and faculty of the popular New England Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound Course, this course emphasizes a hands-on approach to teaching the key points in using bedside ultrasound while basking in the Caribbean sun! Using our very successful two-track format to prioritize a low student:faculty ratio, we offer a large amount of hands-on time with hired models. We start with basic technique, gradually building to more advanced integrative clinical scenarios. By the end of the course, you will be proficient with the ultrasound skills needed to start using it right away!
Basic Course: 15 lectures and 8 hands-on sessions. This track will expose you to the core US applications in the ED. Topics include: Physics and Orientation, Aorta and IVC, Musculoskeletal/Soft Tissue, DVT and Vascular Access, Biliary, extended FAST, and ECHO.
Advanced Course: 15 lectures and 8 hands-on sessions. Presumes that you have some scanning/interpretation experience (basic ECHO and FAST) and builds on those skills.
Topics Include: Basic Doppler, Appendix, Scrotal, Advanced Echo, Ocular, Nerve blocks and a new lecture on Resuscitation US which will cover materials like diastology, carotid doppler/VTI, and the utility of IVC in fluid resuscitation.
