Acute Care and Perioperative
Striving to Improve Point of Care Ultrasound Education for All Healthcare Providers!
Unfortunately our 2021 POCUS Event has been cancelled secondary to Covid-19
Updates for 2022 will be posted as soon as available
Watch ZDoggMD's segment on POCUS below!
The 5th Annual Acute Care and Perioperative Ultrasound Workshop is hosted by the Anesthesiology Departments at Loma Linda University Medical Center and UCLA Medical Center. The focus of the workshop is to teach practitioners how point of care ultrasound can facilitate acute care management, both for adults and pediatrics. The workshop is lead by national leaders on point of care ultrasound and targets all acute care providers involved in: anesthesia, pediatrics, internal medicine, hospitalist medicine, surgery, and critical care.
National leaders in point of care ultrasound lead the workshop. Our instructors have developed a “whole-body” ultrasound examination that has been validated for its clinical utility. This examination termed FORESIGHT (Focused, PeriOperative, Risk, Evaluation, Sonography, Involving, Gastro-Abdominal, Hemodynamic, and Trans-Thoracic ultrasound) has been designed by a multi-disciplinary team of Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Cardiology, and Anesthesiology specialties. Attendees will be taught via this validated curriculum the key aspects of cardiac, pulmonary, abdominal, and hemodynamic ultrasound for the perioperative and acute care setting. We are now offering up to 11.5 hours of online CME with review of online content for a total of 25 CME Credits! The course will have the latest ultrasound technologies and simulators including: virtual reality training, pocket US devices, and a comprehensive display of ultrasound companies.
Basic Cardiac Evaluation (gross ventricular function, gross valve evaluation, and tamponade evaluation)
Airway and Pulmonary Ultrasound (assessment of endotracheal tube location, evaluation for pneumothorax, and assessment of severe air space disease)
Abdominal Ultrasound (assessment of gastric volume and FAST – Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma)
Hemodynamic Ultrasound (assessment of volume status and central venous pressure)
Pediatric Ultrasound (review of the differences in pediatric POCUS examinations)

What is Point of Care Ultrasound?
Point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) is defined as portable ultrasonography brought to the patient that is performed and interpreted “real-time” by the provider. You can view examples of the utility of POCUS here. Key Capabilities Include:
•Improved Patient Outcomes
•Higher Accuracy and Improved Time to Diagnosis
•Non-invasive with Minimal Patient Risk
This webpage is designed by a group of physicians interested in educating on the use of point of care ultrasound for patient care. This website has been designed by faculty at several academic intuitions and seeks to educate on various point of care ultrasound topics. Key topics include:
I. Assessment of Preload and Mechanisms of Hypotension and Shock
II. Evaluation of Pulmonary Function
III. Evaluation of Cardiac Function
IV. Advanced Vascular Access
V. Perioperative Point of Care Ultrasound
