On-Demand Point-of-Care Ultrasound Webinars

Point-of-Care Echocardiography – Part 1

On Demand Presentation / Robert Arntfield, MD presents Point-of-Care Echocardiography – Part 1. Upon viewing this webinar in its entirety, viewers will begin developing a cognitive framework for acquiring, interpreting and integrating images related to the assessment of: gross left ventricular systolic function, gross right ventricular size and function, pericardial effusion, and IVC and volume status. Also, basic cardiac views that are used to evaluate the heart during a focused bedside cardiac exam are reviewed.

Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FoCUS)

On Demand Presentation /Dr. Stephen Haskins presents the emerging role of focused cardiac ultrasound as a powerful tool for the anesthesiologist in the perioperative setting. He discusses how point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) changes the way patients should be evaluated, and how medical decisions are made. He highlights ultrasound as a change agent for the future of the physical exam, and explains how technology has the ability to rapidly bridge the education and experience gap in medicine. Dr. Haskins also describes the differences between the transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and the transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), shows the different focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) views, and discusses a literature review on POCUS in perioperative care, including the FATE protocol.

Ultrasound in Hemodialysis Webinar: Assessment and Ultrasound-Guided Cannulation for Dialysis Nurses

On Demand Presentation / Dianne DuToit, Clinical Nurse Consultant in Dialysis and Vascular Access, presents Ultrasound in Hemodialysis: Assessment and Ultrasound-guided Cannulation for Dialysis Nurses. In this webinar, she discusses the basic ultrasound principles, describes the benefits of ultrasound use in the dialysis setting, identifies anatomic structures on an ultrasound image, creates a “map” of the AVF and AVG utilizing ultrasound, and shows how to successfully insert a dialysis needle into a “phantom” arm using ultrasound guidance.
