We have introduced this course because of the growing interest in the use of ECHO in emergency situations. This course is aimed at clinicians with some experience of ultrasound, ideally with some Core (Level 1) experience gained already.

The purpose of the course is to build on your confidence in ECHO in life-support and to introduce you to the range of potential applications of ECHO in emergency situations.

The course will include lectures on clinical governance issues, obtaining cardiac views, LV function and measurements, RV function, pericardial effusions and tamponade and valve disease. The lectures will be interspersed with lots of hands-on practice on normal subjects.
Numbers are limited to allow direct practical tuition.
