Critical Care Ultrasound Elective Rotation

16 May

A one month elective opportunity in critical care ultrasound is available for select trainees at Western University/LHSC under the supervision of Dr. Robert Arntfield.

The purpose of this rotation is to familiarize the learner with the applications and indications for critical care ultrasound while also participating in the daily care of the critically ill patients at LHSC’s Critical Care Trauma Centre (CCTC).

A combination of online and offline supervised scanning, e-learning and portfolio development will enable the motivated participant to achieve foundational skills in this explosive field of medicine.

Based on the framework described in the internationally endorsed consensus on critical care ultrasound content and competence, this rotation will focus on:

-Basic critical care echocardiography
-Pleural and lung ultrasonography
-Basic abdominal sonography
-Vascular sonography for procedural guidance

Interested residents at LHSC may contact Rob Arntfield (through his assistant here) for further information.  Both local trainees and those from other centres in Canada may participate in this novel elective rotation.

The objectives of this rotation are here for your browsing.
