Are you an acute care clinician looking for ways to improve your diagnostic and management skills for the care of your critically ill or injured patient? Did you ever consider whether there was a better way to diagnose abdominal aortic aneurysm or fast-track trauma patients to surgery? Were you aware of the new resuscitation guidelines recommending the use of focused cardiac ultrasound in the management of the peri-arrest patient?
Emergency Ultrasound UK is the home of quality ultrasound training for acute care clinicians. Our courses are run from venues in Cambridge, Ipswich and the Netherlands and are delivered by practicing acute care clinicians many years of ultrasound experience. Our experienced faculty include consultants in Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Radiology and Sonography from around the UK.
Our course directors are based at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge and the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust.
All of our courses have patients with real pathology including free intra-abdominal fluid, AAA and MSK pathology.
Many UK Emergency Departments, Critical Care Units, Acute Medical and Surgical Units are recognising the benefits of focused ultrasound performed in the department by trained staff. Level 1 competencies are compulsory for Emergency Medicine specialist accreditation.
Our College of Emergency Medicine approved courses are aimed at those wishing to start using ultrasound in their clinical practice, or to expand their skills. We have had over 1000 clinicians attend our courses in Cambridge and Ipswich, in the East of England, where we continue to provide the country's leading courses for Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound.
