Course Overview

Point of care ultrasound is revolutionizing care for the critically ill patient. Ultrasound allows the treating clinician to
exploit the rapid, portable, and repeatable nature of the technique to assist in decision making for those with shock,
respiratory failure, or in need of invasive procedures.

The ACES Critical Care Ultrasound pre-course will focus on the core skill set required to begin the acquisition of
competency in this exciting area, and will include didactic and hands-on sessions with emphasis on image acquisition,
image interpretation, and clinical integration. The specific emphasis will be on cardiac imaging and detection of pleural
and peritoneal fluid, in keeping with Royal College objectives of training.
