Principles of Point-of-Care Ultrasound

Summary

Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is increasingly becoming an encouraged tool for hospitalists as it increases efficiency, improves diagnostic accuracy, and aids in the treatment of hospitalized patients.

Unfortunately, current POCUS training opportunities are extremely limited, of variable quality, and often not tailored specifically for hospitalists. Developed by nationally-recognized experts in POCUS, this series addresses these issues with in-depth cognitive training across the most impactful applications of POCUS for hospitalists.

Target Audience

Providers in any practice setting looking to incorporate point of care ultrasound into patient care in any acute care setting (Physicians, NP, PA, RN, trainees).

Learning Objectives
  1. Review anatomy and recognize the indications for diagnostic and procedural applications of point-of-care ultrasound.
  2. Identify the techniques to perform specific point-of-care ultrasound exams.
  3. Recognize normal and abnormal point-of-care ultrasound image findings for specific point-of-care ultrasound exams.
  4. Practice integrating normal and abnormal point-of-care ultrasound findings into clinical decision making in the acute care setting.
