The 5th annual Western University Critical Care Ultrasound Course is now open for registration!

The 2 day course, directed by Dr. Rob Arntfield, is being held on August 21st and Aug 22nd, 2014 at University Hospital in London, Ontario and is the biggest, most comprehensive course of its kind offered in Canada.  It is ideal for any clinician involved in resuscitation, such as intensivists, emergency physicians and anesthesiologists.

The course emphasizes resuscitative ultrasound in the following domains:

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

See images from last year’s course here.

The course is designed to maximize time spent engaged in practical skills like scanning or practicing image interpretation:

-exceptional participant to faculty ratio of 2:1 for bedside scanning instruction
-lecture content made available online for self-study before course (available 4 weeks ahead of course)
-on day of course: very brief lectures with live demonstration reviewing contents from pre-course lectures

Along with a star studded list of local Western University faculty, the course this year will host 2 excellent visiting faculty:

Dr. Paul Mayo – intensivist and the godfather of critical care ultrasound from NY, NY.  He needs no further introduction.

Dr. Scott Millington – intensivist, ACCP echo course leader, U of Ottawa critical care ultrasound director.
