Ultrasound of the heart and lungs in the critically ill patients is a non-invasive, easy-to-perform and valuable mode of bedside imaging. A focused cardiac and lung ultrasound examination can identify serious and life-threatening pathology in the hemodynamically unstable patient, and guide management.

Intensive Care Echo and Basic Lung Ultrasound (ICE-BLU) covers the theoretical knowledge required prior to undertaking hands-on training in basic echo and lung ultrasound in intensive care. This includes the physics of ultrasound, anatomy, basic views, left and right ventricular function, life-threatening pathologies, basic lung ultrasound and some of the limitations and pitfalls that may be encountered. The intended audience is intensive care and acute medicine doctors, anaesthetists and clinicians interested in the assessment of critically ill patients.

Doppler in Intensive Care Echo (DICE): Echocardiography performed by non-specialists is expanding into many clinical areas, including intensive care. As experience and familiarity with these techniques develop, it will be appreciated that incorporating Doppler into basic 2D studies has the potential to greatly enhance the quality of information obtained. Doppler imaging is particularly relevant to cardiac pathophysiology and is essential for the comprehensive assessment of cardiac function.

The course is designed in a structured format, comprising of several interactive sessions that cover essential topics related to intensive care echo and basic lung ultrasound. The course is divided into different sections, including Anatomy and Basic Views, Basic Lung Ultrasound, Left Ventricular Function, Limitations and Pitfalls, Pathology, Physics of Ultrasound and Image Optimization, Right Ventricular Function, and Which Patients Benefit from Basic Echo?

Hands-on simulation workshop on Echocardiography:

Practice and acquire competence in hands-on Transesophageal and Transthoracic Echocardiography training using High-Fidelity Simulation.

On successfully completing the course, you will receive an e-Learning Intensive Care Echo and a Basic Lung Ultrasound course completion certificate.
