Ultrasound Triage for the Emergency Patient

Sheffield

Aims

A one-day course suitable for qualified veterinary nurses in general practice and referral centres – learn how 'FAST' ultrasound scanning can help you triage and support your emergency and critical patient by becoming adept at POCUS (Point of Care Ultrasound), AFAST™ and TFAST™.

This course would also be suitable for candidates working towards an NCert in ECC.

Objectives

  • Learn how to rapidly triage the emergency patient using ultrasound – and save lives!
  • Emergency assessment of the acute abdomen – with confidence
  • Quick and safe evaluation of the dyspnoeic dog and cat
  • 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

This highly practical scanning course will help you triage those emergency patients that come in when the vet is already busy.

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).
