Description

Introduction to Emergency Medicine Ultrasound - 5.5 Day POCUS Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held from Apr 19 - 24, 2021 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia. Accreditation:ACEM | This course is approved for 37 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours as complying with ACEM standards and policies. Course Description:The Introductory PoCUS-EM 5 day course is designed to meet ACEM requirements for fellowship, EMC, and EMD training but goes further with a half day introduction to the most popular addendum - early pregnancy emergencies. This course takes complete novices right through the basics of machine orientation, probe manipulation, normal anatomy and simple protocols - to recognition of the more common life–threatening pathologies and the decisions that can be made from this new information. The early pregnancy module is particularly useful for those from suburban, regional and rural placements, who see obstetric patients, but do not have the luxury of immediate 24-hour sonographer cover. For these students, differentiating an intrauterine gestation sac from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy is a potentially life-saving skill, particularly for the night shift - while understanding the limitations of ultrasound for appropriate decision making and integration with guidelines. Objectives:The learning objectives for the student doing the five-day course include:• Understand and optimise machine settings for safe implementation of each protocol.• Define the indications and views needed for each protocol.• Recognise and obtain good quality images for each protocol on (relatively) healthy volunteers.• Illustrate the implementation of each protocol using case-based quizzes.• Recognise pathology within the context of a clinical scenario.• Discuss, evaluate and justify clinical decision making in the light of the information obtained.• Discuss the merits of in-plane and out-of-plane techniques for specific situations.• Explain the required hygiene measures for each procedure.• Apply a range of techniques to facilitate procedures.• Synthesise six new tools to model multi-system scanning, with the aim of improving patient care.
