Just wanted to invite everyone to take a look at the Resuscitation Leadership Academy (www.resuscitationleadership academy), brainchild of Haney Mallemat (@criticalcarenow) and Scott Weingart (@emcrit), neither of whom need an intro at this point, needless to say. Much thanks to them for inviting me to the faculty, very honoured to be a part of the team!
Basically the RLA offers an online curriculum packed with great material, but more importantly the opportunity to do an online hangout with any faculty member and discuss cases, topics, etc, in an informal but very informative manner. I think this is a great resource for trainees as well as those who are in practice but either lack an academic environment or really just want to tap into some of these guys’ experience and knowledge.
Looking forward to meeting some of you in a hangout!
Hi, so here is a quick little overview on why anyone taking care of hospitalized patients unequivocally need to use bedside ultrasound in a daily, integrated fashion, even if they don’t realize it yet.
It isn’t just for the flashy spot diagnoses in the ICU or the ER, but really for daily rounds, assessing common cardiac, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal and even neurological syndromes.
Love to hear from any hospitalists or medical consultants out there about their use of bedside ultrasound!
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.
