This workshop is designed for Anaesthetists, Intensive Care, Emergency Department Physicians and Surgeons who wish to learn how to use Point-of-Care (POC) transthoracic ultrasound.
Haemodynamic Echocardiography Assessment in Real Time: iHeartScan™
The iHeartScan™ workshops are aimed at extending your experience and training with transthoracic echocardiography.
Participants will begin by completing the eLearning component prior to the workshop, which consists of a series of tutorials and case studies focusing on transthoracic echocardiography. Their knowledge is then reinforced with a hands-on workshop and demonstration, where under the guidance of an experienced ultrasound trainer, participants will have the opportunity to practise transthoracic ultrasound on real live models.
The maximum intake per Melbourne iHeartScan workshops is 15 participants.
