The 4th 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 offering 3 hours of CME with review of online content for a total of 17.5 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.
