Point-of-Care Ultrasound for Everyday Practice

January 24, 2023

POCUS has high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of abdominal effusion and other abdominal applications (GI motility, bladder volume estimation, gallbladder halo, pneumoperitoneum, renal pelvic dilation), and several thoracic, vascular, and cardiac pathologies (pneumothorax, pleural effusion, alveolar interstitial disease, left and right-sided heart failure, pericardial effusion, intravascular volume estimation and response to fluid therapy). Through comprehensive and interactive lectures delivered by two of the founders and leading experts in the field of veterinary POCUS, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice the skills of POCUS. Lectures are heavily case-based and designed to provide a solid understanding of normal findings as well as pathology, which will be followed by a hands-on laboratory on live animals. Time permitting, vascular access techniques using ultrasound will be discussed and practiced on a phantom model.
