About this course

It’s easier than you think to get more than you think from point of care ultrasonography, especially in emergency and critically ill patients.

This webinar will take you through the ways in which we use point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) in our intensive care unit. From assessment of dyspnoeic cats and trauma patients, to monitoring of critically ill inpatients. It will cover everything from the interpretation of ultrasound images acquired, to the ever-growing number of indications to scan your hospitalised patients.

Whether you have experience and are looking to utilise these techniques more, or are new to emergency and critical care, this webinar will bring you up to date on how best to use ultrasound.

A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars. They are great value for busy practitioners seeking quality CPD at a time of their choice. Participants will receive a handout (slides and/or notes) to support their viewing session and a CPD certificate.
Participants gain access to the webinar for two weeks which allows them to view it at their leisure and convenience as well as review aspects as needed to enhance their learning.
