Course Description

Ultrasound of the heart and lungs in the critically ill patient is a non-invasive, easy-to-perform and a 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, and 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, anesthetists and clinicians interested in assessment of the critically ill patient.

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 comprehensive assessment of cardiac function.
