outline the basic anatomy and concepts of echocardiography.
You will be introduced to the common views of the heart
and how to make a basic, focused assessment.

Andy Breen

Leeds Teaching Hospitals

10:30 - 11:15 Looking at, not listening to the lungs:
Pulmonary ultrasonography 
In this introduction to lung ultrasound, we will show you
how to use the equipment, give a quick overview of the
sonoanatomy of the thorax introducing some common
landmarks and signs. The talk University will take you
through how to ultrasound normal lungs & recognise
some common abnormalities. The rest of the session will
be a practical demonstration and guided hands-on time.

11:30 - 12:15

Clot confirmation –

Lower Limb DVT scanning

This session is an introduction to using ultrasound
to look at vessels, particularly in the context of potential
deep vein thromboses. We will start by learning to recognise
the difference between an artery and a vein, then learn to
recognise important veins. Following this we will look at
pointers that identify a thrombus within a vein and where
these are most likely to occur.
Ben Attwood
Intensive Care Consultant
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust
12:30 - 13:15 Respiratory Revelations –
further lung ultrasound diagnostics
In this session you will learn what those ‘B lines’ are all
about, as well as spend some time studying the pleural line.
We’ll also take you through how to find the diaphragms and
make an assessment of them in a structured way. Finally we
will look at how to approach volume loss in the thorax.

13:30 - 14:15 Capture, Connect, Decide Can telemedicine really help improve patient outcomes?
A look at the Pre-hospital to hospital patient pathway and
see where the use of live patient data could enhance patient outcomes..

14:30 - 15:15 Beyond basic echo:
Taking trans thoracic further
This session is aimed at people who have had some
experience of basic echocardiography, and would be
considered at the stage of BSE Level 1 or FICE+ echocardiography.
It will look beyond the binary questions of the initial FICE assessment,
demonstrating more views & a more detailed examination.
Additional clinically useful assessments including TAPSE
for right ventricle function, visual tricuspid regurgitation
assessment using colour Doppler and visual mitral regurgitation
assessment using colour Doppler will be shown and a chance
to try these out in the practical session.

15:30 - 16:15 Abdominal assessment  This is an introduction to abdominal point of care ultrasound,
aimed at the novice user. It will familiarise you with the equipment,
followed by a summary of relevant anatomy in the abdomen.
As with all focused point of care ultrasound, the emphasis

hands on scanning time to begin your sonographic journey
into the world of the abdomen!
