Event Overview
Welcome message:

The “Golden Hour” is one of the pillars of emergency medicine. Capitalize on the speed and accuracy of ultrasound to take advantage of every minute. Having the skills to evaluate the abdomen (the FAST procedure) in adult and pediatric patients, cardiac in adult and pediatric patients, and first trimester pregnancy ultrasound may make the difference between life and death!  Participants in this course will benefit from “hands-on scan labs” where you will practice the essential skills and techniques to acquire an ultrasound image for quick and accurate diagnosis in all age ranges.

AHEC has taught this course for physicians in the US, China, and South America. This two day course begins both days with lecture where faculty will review the basics such as: ultrasound physics and instrumentation, anatomy, and procedures and protocols. Following lecture, participants will benefit from our on-site scanning lab with live models for extensive hands-on practice. The course content is based on ACEP guidelines for the performance of Emergency Medicine Ultrasound.


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

Identify the appropriate equipment settings and transducer selection for different ultrasound applications

Identify and display appropriate normal and abnormal anatomy and orientation in the ultrasound field of view

Understand variations in adult and pediatric scanning techniques

Understand variations in scanning protocols for demonstration of pathologies in emergency medicine examinations.

Successfully perform a focused abdomen exam

Successfully perform a trauma FAST exam

Successfully perform the protocol for a bedside cardiac evaluation of pericardial effusion

Successfully perform a venous system exam

Discuss and apply scanning techniques for the performance of the female patient and first trimester OB with transabdominal and endovaginal approaches
