Participants in this emergency/point of care ultrasound course will benefit from hands-on scan labs where they'll practice the essential skills and techniques to acquire an ultrasound image for quick and accurate diagnosis while evaluating the abdomen (focused assessment with sonography for trauma - FAST exam) and cardiac function in adult and pediatric patients, and first trimester pregnancy ultrasound that may make the difference between life and death!

This two day course begins both days with lecture where faculty will review the basics: Ultrasound physics, instrumentation, anatomy, and protocols.
