Description: Innovative modular cross-over programme to meet the needs of beginners and advanced practitioners. The CACU-modules offer a fantastic opportunity to meet and greet expert sonographers in a small interactive group. You will have a true VIP experience on the front seat where you will be able to improve your skills during the hands-on sessions and to test your knowledge during the interactive cases with voting. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Background: Point-of-care ultrasound has become increasingly integrated into the practice of intensive care across with several accreditation programmes being developed by leading professional organisation and societies (ICS UK, CUSIC, SCCM, ESICM courses, Dutch ICS, ICARUS, WinFocus, HandsOnEcho and CACU in Belgium etc). This course incorporates aspects of all these programmes into a one-day innovative, modular course. Cross-over between morning and afternoon modules is possible.

Learning objective:
  • Gain a foundation in the ultrasound skills needed for Intensive Care
  • Interact with expert colleagues in the spirit of collaboration and shared learning
  • Lectures and practical experience in:
    • Transthoracic echocardiography and FATE
    • Lung US and BLUE
    • Abdominal US and FAST
    • Vascular US
  • Ultrasound in shock and as a guide to fluid resuscitation and SESAME
  • Hands-on sessions with phantoms for vascular access and transesophageal echocardiography (advanced)
  • Interactive cases and voting
