This course will feature the latest ultrasound principles to help you:

  • Perform basic ultrasound functions to optimize an image and perform cardinal ultrasound motions and obtain basic cardiac views.
  • Differentiate between A-line and B-line pattern in the lungs and describe their clinical utility.
  • Improve basic knowledge on FAST exam, DVT and venous congestion

Upon completion, you will have learned well-founded grounding in the basic techniques, including focused cardiac, lung, abdomen, DVT, and basic venous congestion ultrasound. These techniques lay the foundation for a safe and effective ultrasound practice.

Please note:

  • All workshop participants will receive a certificate.
