Cardiac Imaging 1 Hero

Cardiac Imaging 1

How do you angle the transducer to get a parasternal long axis view of the heart in the Emergency Department? Which kind of transducer should you use? How is the cardiology orientation different? And how, exactly, do you measure fluid responsiveness using the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC)?

Cardiac 1 introduces these questions (and answers!), and much more. Develop an understanding of how emergency medicine and cardiology applications differ, and test your knowledge of different views of the heart.

eFAST

eFAST

This valuable exam assesses the trauma patient for internal free fluid collection in the thorax and abdomen. Course participants will learn to identify the internal anatomy seen during the eFAST examination on ultrasound. In addition, students must be able to recognize abnormalities commonly encountered during an eFAST exam, and determine the appropriate transducer for different patient body types.

Ultrasound Guided Paracentesis

Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis

After completing the Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis course, viewers should be able to explain the basic outline of ultrasound-guided paracentesis, including: methods for image optimization, ideal equipment selections and settings, identification of abdominal anatomy frequently encountered during paracentesis, and the most common procedural steps involved in performing an ultrasound-guided paracentesis.

Thoracentesis

Ultrasound-Guided Thoracentesis

The Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis course provides a basic outline of ultrasound-guided thoracentesis, including methods for image optimization, ideal ultrasound equipment settings (including transducer selection), identification of anatomical structures, and the most common procedural steps involved in performing an ultrasound-guided thoracentesis.
