Day 1 (Tuesday 14th November) & Day 2 (Wednesday 15th November)

Introduction to Renal & Bladder POCUS

Time: 

Day One: 10:00 - 10:45 | 15:15 - 16:00

Day Two: 11:30 - 12:15 | 15:00 - 15:45

Content:

How to utilise Renal & Bladder POCUS as an extension of standard clinical assessment of Acute Renal Injury.

  • Illustrate basic capability in performing a Renal & Bladder POCUS 
  • Illustrate basic capability in ergonomology, probology, Knobology of POCUS
  • Describe common artefacts encountered during the scans
  • Interpret normology and basic pathology of the scans
  • Recognise when to selectively and efficiently deploy the scans as an extension of standard clinical assessment

Breathlessness of unknown aetiology

Time: 

Day One: 11:00 - 11:45 | 16:15 - 17:00

Day Two: 09:30 - 10:15 | 13:00 - 13:45

Content:

This session will cover the basic assessment of a patient with breathlessness of unknown aetiology using point of care ultrasound.  The focus will be on providing a framework to enable the clinician to identify or rule out significant pathology to guide immediate or further management.  The speaker will use case based scenarios to guide delegates through the use of focused echo and lung US to identify sonographic features of possible differential diagnoses.  This will be done using a simple and easy to remember scanning routine, building knowledge with each repetition.  The emphasis will be on using 2D b-mode imaging, but with the opportunity to use colour flow doppler, continuous wave doppler and M-mode, depending on the knowledge and experience of the learners.

By the end of the session delegates should feel confident in describing the use of focused point of care ultrasound to:

  • Make a basic assessment of left and right ventricular size and function
  • Recognise signs of LV and RV failure
  • Identify a pericardial or pleural effusion

The new/undiagnosed murmur

Time: 

Day One: 12:00 - 12:45 | 14:15 - 15:00

Day Two: 10:30 - 11:15 | 14:00 - 14:45

Content:

This session will cover the basic assessment of a patient with a murmur of unkown aetiology using point of care ultrasound.  The focus will be on providing a framework to enable the clinician to identify or rule out significant pathology to guide immediate or further management.  The speaker will use case based scenarios to guide delegates through the use of focused echo identify sonographic features of possible differential diagnoses.  This will be done using a simple and easy to remember scanning routine, building knowledge with each repetition.  The emphasis will be on using 2D b-mode imaging, but with the opportunity to use colour flow doppler, depending on the knowledge and experience of the learners.

By the end of the session delegates should feel confident in describing the use of focused point of care ultrasound to:

  • Make a basic assessment of overall ventricular function
  • Assess the morphology of the mitral and aortic valves for any obvious sclerosis, stenosis and/or regurgitant pathology
