Pediatric Critical Care and Neonatal Medicine Point of Care Ultrasound

September 25, 2018 to September 26, 2018

Overview

During this two-day course learners will become skilled at performing a whole-body critical care ultrasound exam consisting of a protocol of focused, goal directed heart and lung ultrasound exams, lower extremity deep vein thrombosis exam, and renal, bladder, abdominal cavity ultrasound assessments.

Statement of Need and Purpose

This course will address learner competence of using new and innovative methods for ultrasound procedures. Lack of formal hands-on training for conducting critical care ultrasonography and the recognition of appropriate indications and limitations of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) or bedside ultrasound exam can potentially affect patient outcomes. Physicians and care teams need strategies and up-to-date research to incorporate best practice guidelines into their clinical management of patients.

The purpose of this course is to provide didactic and simulation experiences to close this knowledge gap.

Target Audience

This CE (continuing education) activity is intended for physicians, advance practice registered nurses, registered nurses, and physician assistants working in pediatric critical care settings.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialities areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, and professionalism, the Institute of Medicine areas of working in interdisciplinary teams, and the Interprofessional and Nursing areas of roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams/teamwork.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Demonstrate core nonprocedural ultrasound skills (basic fluid and cardiac function assessment, FAST exam, pulmonary ultrasounds) using bedside ultrasound.
  • Demonstrate core procedural ultrasound skills (intravenous line insertion and fluid drainage).
  • Discuss appropriate indications and limitations of the bedside ultrasound exam in pediatric acute care settings.
