Event Overview
Welcome message:

Diagnostic ultrasound has now evolved to become the most cost effective and efficient procedure in the arsenal of diagnostic imaging procedures. With the rising costs of health care, it is a matter of necessity to utilize cost effective, rapid and accurate ways to diagnose and treat patients at the “point of care”. This course will address emerging applications for the use of ultrasound in cardiovascular emergencies.


What happens after the FAST exam?


You are in a busy ER department or in a critical care setting, do you want to spend your time doing ultrasound or do you want answers to help you care for your patient in the quickest most efficient fashion.  This course will give you the training you need to rapidly assess your patient’s cardiac function and status, swollen, painful leg, and get a line started.  Get your answers quickly and treat your patient appropriately so you can save another life in the next room.


Objectives


At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:


1.    Identify and display appropriate normal anatomy and orientation in the ultrasound field of view for selected topics to include abdominal and chest cavities, the heart, nerves, and peripheral veins.


2.    Successfully complete cardiovascular ultrasound examinations following correct patient preparation and procedure protocols to include simulated line placements.


3.    Understand variations in scanning protocols for demonstration of abnormalities and pathologies in emergency cardiovascular exams to include chest and abdominal cavities, the heart, and peripheral veins.


4.    Be able to identify sources and research reference materials for additional information for point of care ultrasound.


5.    Explain the importance of self-credentialing in critical care ultrasound, and discuss the importance of record keeping, peer review and quality assurance.


Target Audience


Cardiologists, emergency medicine physicians, trauma surgeons, critical care physicians, intensivists, internal medicine and family practice physicians who will be performing and interpreting ultrasound examinations.

Scan With the Experts


We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our Scan with the Experts option. Additionally, Scan with the Experts sessions can be set up without registering for a regularly scheduled course to enhance your already developed skills. Call AHEC at 1-800-239-1361 for more information.


AHEC Cancellation and Refund Policy for Skills Courses


AHEC defines a skills course as a limited enrollment course where a received registration with payment reserves your place in a course (i.e. all Ultrasound courses, Mammography Initial Training and other theory courses). For cancellations received at least two weeks prior to the course date, a refund less a 30% processing fee will be given. Within two weeks of the course, no refund is given, but a tuition credit – less a 30% processing fee – may be applied to a future course. No refunds or tuition credit is given for non-attendance. Facilities may substitute employees by notification to AHEC at least one week in advance.
