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).
CORE (Level 1) Emergency Ultrasound Course (UK):
Dates: 5th or 6th June 2017 and 25th or 26th July 2017
Course Leads: Firas Abou-Auda & George Nada
Venue: Unit 42, St Olav's Court, 25 Lower Road, Canada Water, London, SE16 2XB
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.
The day includes lectures on the physics of ultrasound, practical aspects of point of care ultrasound and good governance as well as on each of the core applications - FAST, AAA, ELS and vascular access. You will then get lots of hands on scanning practice in each of the CORE applications on normal and pathological subjects using the latest ultrasound machines supplied by GE Healthcare. 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.
Core Applications in Emergency Ultrasound Course (Dubai, UAE):
Course leads: Dr George Nada and Dr Firas Abou-Auda.
Based on the IFEM ultrasound curriculum, the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine (ESEM) recognises the following core (basic) applications of Point-of-Care Emergency Ultrasound in the Emergency Ultrasound Section of their curriculum (click here to view ESEM ultrasound curriculum). These are very similar to the UK Level 1 ultrasound competencies required of UK EM trainees and include:
- Good governance
- Introduction to ultrasound physics and knobology
- Extended Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (EFAST)
- Evaluation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
- Evaluation of Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT)
- Soft-tissue/musculoskeletal ultrasound
- Procedure guidance: central vascular access
Our 1 day Core Applications in Emergency Ultrasound course addresses all of the knowledge and practical skills recommended by IFEM, ESEM and the RCEM as necessary to achieve competency in basic (level 1) Emergency Ultrasound. The day includes lectures on the theoretical and practical aspects of ultrasound, lots of teaching and scanning practice on model patients and the use of use of central venous access simulators. 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 also give advice on maintaining your logbook beyond the course.
