Perioperative and Acute Care Ultrasound Workshop

POCUS

The third annual perioperative and acute care ultrasound workshop is hosted by the Anesthesiology Departments at Loma Linda University Medical Center and UCLA Medical Center. The focus of the workshop is to teach practitioners how point of care ultrasound can facilitate acute care management, both for adults and pediatrics. The course directors of this workshop are adult and pediatric anesthesiologists, however the target audience for the workshop includes all Acute Care Providers, i.e., Anesthesiologists, pediatricians, Internists, Hospitalists, Surgeons, and Intensivists. National leaders in point of care ultrasound lead the workshop. Our instructors have developed a “whole-body” ultrasound examination that has been validated for its clinical utility. This examination termed FORESIGHT (Focused, PeriOperative, Risk, Evaluation, Sonography, Involving, Gastro-Abdominal, Hemodynamic, and Trans-Thoracic ultrasound) has been designed by a multi-disciplinary team of Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Cardiology, and Anesthesiology specialties. Attendees will be taught via this validated curriculum the key aspects of cardiac, pulmonary, abdominal, and hemodynamic ultrasound for the perioperative and acute care setting.
