The 2 day course (with the option of a 3rd half-day) is being held on August 18th, 19th (and 20th) 2016 at the sophisticated CSTAR facility at University Hospital in London, Ontario.  This is the biggest and most comprehensive course of its kind offered in Canada. It is ideal for any clinician involved in resuscitation, such as intensivists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists or internists.

In the core 2-day course, we emphasize resuscitative ultrasound in the following domains:

-critical care echocardiography
-lung and pleural ultrasound
-abdominal free fluid
-ultrasound guided vascular access (central, peripheral and arterial lines)
-DVT

For those who wish to stay for the 3rd day, a half-day workshop will focus on more advanced echocardiographic techniques including:

-determination of stroke volume
-quantitative right sided assessment
-valvular assessmentBrochure for ccus 2016 Final
-goal directed TEE
