US Guided Intervention for Critical Care and Common Emergency Procedures

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Specifically designed for healthcare providers who are exploring point of care ultrasound to enhance the safety and effectiveness of their procedural skills. This course covers the spectrum of ultrasound guided procedures and interventions commonly performed in the intensive care units, high dependency units and emergency department.

 

     The morning session focuses on critical care procedures; and the afternoon is dedicated to soft tissue and musculoskeletal procedures. Participants can register for one or both sessions.

     

     Lectures are succinct and delivered in an interactive format. The Hands-on Training is the cornerstone of the program. During these sessions, trainees will be guided to perform ultrasound guided interventional skills on phantoms and mannequins. With more than 4.5hrs set aside for the practical and keeping the trainer to trainee ratio at maximum of 1:4, participants will have ample opportunities to practise. This course will lay the foundation required of the healthcare provider in performing ultrasound guided critical care and emergency procedures.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVE

Upon completion of the Acute and Critical Care Session, participants will learn how to use US to:

 

  • Perform pericardiocentesis

  • Perform central venous catheterization of the internal jugular, subclavian and femoral vein

  • Perform peripheral venous and arterial catheterization

  • Perform thoracocentesis, paracentesis and suprapubic bladder aspiration

  • Guide airway management

  • Confirm placement of nasogastric tube

  • Identify abscess, detect and remove foreign bodies

  • Perform joint aspiration of the knee, hip, elbow and shoulder.

 

Upon completion of the Nerve Block and MSK Session, participants will learn how to use US to:

  • Assist in assessing adequacy of fracture reduction

  • Assist in confirmation of joint enlocation (shoulder)

  • Perform central nerve blocks (interscalene, fascia iliaca and femoral nerve)

  • Perform lower limb nerve blocks (sciatic, posterior tibial, sural, saphenous nerve)

  • Perform upper limb nerve blocks (radial, median and ulnar nerve)

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Critical care physicians, emergency physicians, physicians, surgeons, anaesthetist, residents, medical officers and healthcare workers who are required to perform these procedures in their practice. Participants should already have a basic understanding and appreciation of point of care ultrasound and ultrasound physics.
