EDTU X Resuscitation and Diagnostics


No Events

EDTUx is an advanced point of care ultrasound course for those who have completed and consolidated their basic ultrasound skills. A broad range of modules, including resuscitative, diagnostic, and procedural applications, have been combined into a comprehensive one-day course. This course is relevant to emergency physicians, critical care physicians, internists, family physicians, and residents in these specialties.

Like EDTU, EDTUx maximizes hands-on instruction time by using a low learner to faculty ratio as well as a flipped classroom model where instructional lectures are accessed by participants prior to the start of the course. EDTUx also emphasizes the appropriate clinical integration of point of care ultrasound findings into actual patient management with the use of case-based scenarios.

EDTUx encompasses advanced point of care ultrasound applications for problems you encounter on every shift.

Learning Objectives

  • Generate advanced cardiac views, including parasternal long axis, parasternal short axis, apical 4 chamber, subxiphoid and inferior vena cava views.
  • Identify cardiac pathology: pericardial effusion, cardiac tamponade, decreased ejection fraction, acute and chronic right ventricular strain.
  • Identify an abnormal inferior vena cava: flat versus plethoric.
  • Identify lung pathology: pneumothorax, pleural effusion, A and B lines, and pneumonia.
  • Integrate both cardiac and lung scanning into the care of patients presenting with shortness of breath, chest pain and shock.
  • Accurately track a needle for central venous catheterization using both an in- and out-of-plane approach after a period of deliberate practice.
  • Generate views and identify relevant anatomy of the gallbladder, renal system, eye, soft tissue, and lower extremity deep veins.
  • Identify gallbladder pathology: cholelithiasis and cholecystitis.
  • Identify renal pathology: hydronephrosis, nephrolithiasis, and ureteric jets.
  • Identify ocular pathology: posterior vitreous detachment, retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, lens dislocation, and globe rupture.
  • Identify soft tissue pathology: cellulitis, abscess, and foreign body.
  • Identify a deep vein thrombosis in the femoral or popliteal veins.
  • Integrate findings of these applications into clinical decision making and patient management.
  • Understand the potential pitfalls and errors in performing and interpreting these scans.
