Start time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 AM

This course focusses on introducing the concept of point-of-care ultrasound for trauma, triage, tracking, treatment & total systemic evaluation (the 5 Ts of POCUS) to the general small animal practitioner (even without any experience with ultrasound). The specialists will show how point-of-care ultrasound differs from the complete ultrasonographic examination performed by diagnostic imaging specialists and how any small animal practitioner can acquire the necessary skills to use point-of-care ultrasound in everyday practice. The theory is covered via 8 hours of online lectures (available on-demand) and covers the following topics that have conveniently been split up into four 2-hour sessions:The Essentials of Point-of-Care UltrasoundAbdominal Point-of-Care Ultrasound ExaminationsHow to Examine the Lung & Pleural SpacesPneumothorax, Pleural Effusion & Lung PathologyCardiac Ultrasound Made Easy!Vascular Ultrasound Estimating Fluid Status, Fluid Responsiveness & Fluid OverloadPoint-of-Care Ultrasound Case-Discussions & Self-AssessmentAll sessions will include pre- and post-lecture cine loop interpretations to demonstrate participant learning and confidence building throughout the course.The 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunities to train the different point-of-care techniques on live animals, cadavers and models and to get tips and tricks in small groups (2 4 attendees per ultrasound machine), under the supervision of the specialists. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:Cardiac Point of Care UltrasoundAbdominal Point of Care UltrasoundPulmonary (Pleural/Lung) Point of Care UltrasoundCardiac, Abdominal & Pulmonary POC Ultrasound on Cadaver SpecimensUltrasound-Guided Vascular Access Techniques on SpecimensFree POC Scan Session on Live Dogs The course fee includes coffee/tea breaks, lunch and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Wetlabs/Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first worked through the Lectures. Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
