Echocardiography and lung ultrasonography of the critical patient

Welcome to this two-day course in echocardiography and ultrasonography!
Transthoracic echocardiography is fundamental for the hemodynamic evaluation of the critical patient, both during anesthesia and in the emergency and critical care unit. Echocardiography allows instant and comprehensive assessment of cardiac structure and function, as well as hemodynamics.
Lung ultrasonography is a tool of great interest in patients with pulmonary edema as it has been shown to improve the diagnostic accuracy of a cardiac aetiology in patients with undifferentiated dyspnoea, compared with clinical assessment and chest radiography.

Echcardiography and ultrasonography are excellent diagnostic tools for use in the critical patient as they cause minimal discomfort and are of low risk for the patient.

The target group for this course are veterinarians working with emergency cases, intensive care patients or with patients undergoing anaesthesia. All veterinarians just wanting to expand their knowledge regarding care of critical patients will benefit from the course. The course is tailored for veterinarians with limited experience of cardiology in these kind of patients.

Course language is English.

The course is both theoretical with lectures and practical, giving many opportunites to train on live dogs.
The aim of the course is to provide practical and useful information about how to perform the most important echocardiographic views and measurements. The course will also include how to interpret the most common hemodynamic condition present in patients under anesthesia or in emergency condition.

After the course the participants will be able to:

  • Perform the echocardiographic views and measurements which is valuable to use in a critical patient
  • Perform and evaluate ultrasonographic scans of lungs
  • Interpret the main hemodynamic conditions that will be useful in clinic in order to promptly choose the appropriate therapy

For details see the subpage "PROGRAMME". 

We will provide a short survey that participants can perform before and after the course in order to assess their improvement in emergency echocardiography.
A PDF file of all the lecture slides will be shared with the delegates 1 week before the course starts.
