Description

Combined course in basic lung ultrasound and FAST (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma).

Basic lung ultrasound  is a simple and systematic sonographic examination of the lungs in trauma and emergency situations. It allows the clinician to perform point-of-care ultrasound in a wide range of patients with respiratory emergencies in order to diagnose and exclude pleural effusion, pulmonary oedema and pneumothorax.

FAST is a simple and systematic sonographic examination for the detection free fluid in the pleural cavities, pericardial sack and in the abdomen. FAST is an important adjunct in the primary survey of the trauma patient. It is easy and quickly learned and meets the basic needs for the non-radiologist in evaluating the trauma patient.

The following topics will be covered in the workshop in groups of 4-5 participants with live models:

  • Basic ultrasound theory including knobology
  • How to perform a basic lung ultrasound and FAST examination
  • Diagnosis and exclusion of pneumothorax, pleural effusion and pulmonary oedema using lung ultrasound

  • Case training
