This is our entry level course or maybe you are just after a refresher.
Learn basic probe handling and manipulation skills and then embark on developing your skills in performing and integrating eFAST and AAA scanning into your daily practice in the ED, Urgent Care Centre, ICU or GP practice.

We will also introduce our vascular access module which will improve your skills in gaining ultrasound guided peripheral intravenous, arterial and central access.


Do you already have some probe skills and have been using ultrasound for a while? Then join us for our advanced course. Learn how to perform and integrate basic cardiac and lung ultrasound into your critically unwell patients.

Topics covered in this module include assessing for a pericardial effusion and tamponade, basic assessment of the LV and RV function, assessing fluid status in the unwell patient and developing your skills in lung ultrasound to assess for pneumothorax, pneumonia, cardiac failure and effusions.
