Ultrasound has become a recognised tool for accurate and prompt evaluation of critically ill patients. Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension (RUSH) is a protocol where ultrasound is used to diagnose shock in a patient presenting with undifferentiated hypotension.
This intensive two-day course is designed as a fast track for those who have already completed a foundation course and are looking to extend their skills in this area.
This course includes over 8 hours of scanning with live patient models and includes the following topics; the RUSH protocol, basic cardiac views, DVT and Lung.
Bundle this course with the Core Emergency Medicine Ultrasound - 3 day program to create a comprehensive 5 day POCUS program.
