Although bedside ultrasound truly started in the emergency room and is slowly spreading to critical care, its usefulness extends to all aspects of medicine, particularily in hospitalist and consultation medicine. The CCUS Institute is proud to be involved in a forward-thinking undertaking by ASMIQ to increase bedside ultrasound use by its members.
For the second year, the Critical Care & UltraSound Institute (CCUS) is hosting ASMIQ (Association des Spécialistes en Médecine Interne du Québec / Quebec Association of Internal Medicine Specialists) members for a day of bedside ultrasound, tailored for internal medicine practice. This year’s program will review volume status, focused cardiac and lung ultrasound as well as ultrasound-guided bedside procedures. There will be 3.5 hours of workshops in the day.
The didactic presentations will be given in french, and the workshops both in french and english.
Welcome to the course! Here are a few papers which should be read in preparation and as reference, in order to enable you to get the most out of the course:
Thank you and looking forward to meeting you on May 23rd!
