Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Optional Workshop
Location (on campus): UVM SIM Lab, Burlington, VT
Wednesday, February 7, 7:30am-12:00pm

Point-of-care ultrasound has emerged as an important bedside tool in the management of acutely ill patients. This workshop combines high-yield didactic sessions with hands-on training on live models. The workshop starts with a review of the basics of ultrasound, knobology and then explores a myriad of diagnostic ultrasound applications including focused cardiac ultrasound, thoracic and renal ultrasound to access LV function, pericardial effusion, fluid management, pneumonia, pneumothorax, pleural effusion and hydronephrosis to name a few. 

The course will be ideal for both beginners and more experienced providers to refine ultrasound skills. Expected faculty to attendee ratio is 1:3. This workshop will need a minimum of 8 registrants with a maximum of 18, so sign up early!
