Emergency Ultrasound Canada
Ever imagined a time when you could look for abdominal aortic aneurysms or a hemoperitoneum in trauma in your department? Need to assess if your hypotensive patient is under or overfilled? Wondering if there is a way to help determine the underlying cause in a PEA cardiac arrest? Just starting to use ultrasound to insert central venous lines?
Many clinicians are recognizing the benefits of focused ultrasound performed at the bedside for acutely ill or injured patients.
In Canada, training and accreditation standards for emergency ultrasound are overseen by the Canadian Emergency Ultrasound Society (CEUS). Our courses are aimed at those wishing to start using ultrasound in their clinical practice, or to expand their skills. Courses are run by experienced specialists with experience in point of care ultrasound in the emergency and critical care setting.
