Practical skills are emphasised with a focus on the integration of peri arrest echocardiography assessment in an arrest scenario, including a resuscitation simulation.
This intensive, one day course has over 5 hours of practical scanning.
This course has been designed for candidates with prior ultrasound experience and who want to extend their specialist scanning skills.
