138889 - Primary Care Ultrasound Online Program

  • : Online

The Primary Care Ultrasound Online Program provides an introduction to operating an ultrasound machine in the primary care setting. The content of each session builds on existing knowledge and clinical skill, refreshes less commonly used skills and requires the clinician to consider a range of the clinical problems and scenarios and provide a response. There are eight major topics being: 
1. Ultrasound Principles / Physics 
2. Knobology 
3. Abdominal Aorta 
4. First Trimester Ultrasound 
5. Lung Ultrasound 
6. Musculoskeletal / Soft Tissue Ultrasound 
7. eFAST Examination 
8. Ultrasound Guided Procedures 

Relevance to General Practice

Metropolitan GPs and especially Rural GPs providing emergency services for a local hospital will inevitably encounter patients who need to have emergency ultrasounds. A structured approach to the assessment and management of these patients as well as having a systems based approach in the context of local resources will be critical to patient outcomes.

Learning outcomes
  • Demonstrate ultrasound of the aorta including probe technique, ultrasound anatomy, measurement of the aorta and recognition of aneurysmal dilation
  • Demonstrate the procedure for ultrasound of the First Trimester including probe technique, ultrasound anatomy, embryological development in early pregnancy.
  • Demonstrate eFAST exam including probe technique, ultrasound anatomy and identify ultrasound features of peritoneal bleeding, haemothorax and pericardial fluid.
  • Demonstrate the procedure for ultrasound of the bladder including probe technique, ultrasound anatomy and measurement of the bladder volume
  • Implement a checklist for preparing patient, equipment and environment for bedside ultrasound
