  • Is this cardiac or respiratory? – In seconds!
  • Rapidly identify abdominal fluid/ internal bleeding/ pleural effusion/ pneumothorax/ pulmonary oedema
  • Interactive, case-based approach to real emergencies and critical patients
  • Practical scanning including ultrasound guided abdominocentesis, thoracocentesis, and FNA

Summary

Comprehensive course notes, refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Please Bring a Dog

£100 voucher if you bring a dog to scan

In order to create the optimum learning environment and as the course has a large practical element, we kindly ask that delegates booking onto our Practical Ultrasound courses bring a friendly dog with them for the duration of the course.

It is important that the dogs can be clipped as appropriate for a complete ultrasound scan, and ideally have had either no breakfast or only a very light meal first thing in the morning. All our venues are dog-friendly and treats are available to give to the dogs during the scanning process.

It is preferable to have at least 1 dog between 2 delegates, therefore if you are able to bring a dog/s we will give you a £100 voucher (one voucher per person).
