Diagnostic ultrasound has now evolved to become the most cost effective and efficient procedure in the arsenal of diagnostic imaging procedures. With the rising costs of health care, it is a matter of necessity to utilize cost effective, rapid and accurate ways to diagnose and treat patients at the “point of care”. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has highlighted ultrasound-guided interventions as key implementation of 21st century patient care. This course will address “Next Level” applications of emergency medicine ultrasound and will benefit those practitioners with prior experience in ultrasound.

The power and size of the new portable ultrasound equipment has expanded the application of bedside ultrasound from advanced cardiac evaluation and pulmonary applications to ultrasound guided treatments and interventions. Emphasis will be placed on acquisition of the knowledge and scanning skills needed for vascular access techniques. Ultrasound guidance or localization for abscesses, effusions, and foreign bodies, and integration of point-of-care echocardiography into symptom based evaluation of the patient. The course content is based on ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Imaging Criteria for the performance of Emergency Medicine Ultrasound-Guided Procedures.
