Speciality Classification

Face to face

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. 

Relevance to General Practice

The benefits of GP performed ultrasound are well documented and can be particularly advantageous to the clinician working in in critical care in a resource limited environment.
