Emergency Ultrasound Course


Level 1 Course

Approved by the College of Emergency Medicine

Course Leads: Firas Abou-Auda & George Nada

The College of Emergency Medicine now recommends that all ED doctors should be competent in Level 1 Emergency Ultrasound by their 4th Year of Specialist Registrar training (equivalent to ST5 year). Level 1 Emergency Ultrasound entails FAST scanning in trauma, abdominal aortic assessment, ultrasound guided vascular access and echo in life support. Our course also covers scanning for pneumothoraces. 

Our 1 day Emergency Ultrasound course addresses all of the knowledge and practical skills recommended by the College as necessary to achieve competency in level 1 Emergency Ultrasound. The day includes lectures on the theoretical and practical aspects, use of central venous access simulators, as well as hands on practice at scanning normal, and pathological subjects. Our faculty of ED consultants have extensive experience in using ultrasound in the Emergency Department. Teaching in small groups they will guide you through your scans, offer useful tips on gaining the best image, and advice on maintaining your logbook beyond the course.
