CCUS Annual Symposium 2014 – The Ultrasound-Assisted Physical Exam! stay tuned!

This year, we’re putting together a really, really interesting event.  Bedside ultrasound being a hot topic and at the brink of revolutionizing clinical examination and practice, we figured that this year, we’d go back to basics to some degree with a general ultrasound approach, but also a step further in looking at it from an integration perspective, meaning how to approach clinical problems with ultrasound as an added tool.

Talks will be clinical problem-based – e.g. the patient with dyspnea, the patient with renal failure, etc, essentially showing participants how to integrate their growing ultrasound skills into routine use.  There will be a ton of faculty led workshops to review all the basic ultrasound skills (lung, cardiac, abdominal, vascular) on live models and on advanced CAE simulators, both adult and pediatric.

Our faculty will be fantastic, including Andre Denault, Haney Mallemat (@criticalcarenow), JF and Max (@EGLS_JFandMax), Edgar Hockmann, Catherine Nix, Alberto Goffi, Massimiliano Meineri, Matt Hoffmann (www.pulmccm.org), Jeff Burzynski, Jason Fisher, Alyssa Abo and many more…

The two day core event will take place in Montreal, on may 10th and 11th, and, equally interesting will be a pre-congress set of courses on may 9th, including:

EGLS (echo-guided life support)

Focused TEE

Bedside ultrasound for nurses (vascular access, IVC volume status assessment)

Critical Care Procedures (drains, tracheostomy, central lines)

 

Registration is not yet open but will be in the next few weeks, so for anyone interested please visit http://www.ccusinstitute.org and join (it’s free!) and we’ll email you when its up and running.

Please forward/link this to all your forward-thinking colleagues~

thanks!
