Core (Level 1) Emergency Ultrasound Course

Higher specialty training in Emergency Medicine now requires competence in the four CORE (previously Ultrasound Level 1) clinical applications of  Emergency Ultrasound: focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST), assessment of the abdominal aorta for Aneurysm (AAA) focused echocardiography in life support (ELS) and ultrasound guided vascular access (VA).

What We Offer

Core (Level 1) Ultrasound Course

(Approved for 5 CPD points by BMUS – British Medical Ultrasound Society)

Our very popular one day Emergency Ultrasound course addresses the knowledge and practical skills recommended by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine as necessary to achieve competency in the four CORE (level 1) clinical applications of Emergency Ultrasound (see above). It also covers the mandatory components of ultrasound physics and good governance.

Before the course we provide access to a series of prerecorded videos included the Physics of Ultrasound and the four core applications.

The day includes lectures on the practical aspects of point of care ultrasound and good governance. We also provide comprehensive lectures on each of the core applications: FAST, AAA, ELS and vascular access, followed by lots of hands on scanning practice in each of the CORE applications on normal and pathological subjects. A simulator  is used to teach ultrasound guided central venous access. Our faculty of ED consultants have extensive experience in using ultrasound in the Emergency Department. Teaching in small groups they will guide you through your scans, offer useful tips on gaining the best image, and advice on maintaining your logbook beyond the course.
