2:00 - 7:00 PM Pre-Conference Offering: Half-Day Point-of-Care Ultrasound Workshop (Fee Required)
Workshop Director: David Kantor, MD, PhD
Faculty: Walid Alrayashi, MD, Karen Boretsky, MD, Thomas Burch, MD, Andrea Gomez Morad, MD   

Point-of-care ultrasound is an increasingly valuable tool in the perioperative management of pediatric patients. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be familiar with the basic concepts of the ultrasound technique, basic physics, and the use of appropriate transducers. Participants will gain knowledge in the use of ultrasound to evaluate ventricular function and volume status. Participants will also gain practical skills in using ultrasound to evaluate endotracheal intubation and the presence of a full stomach. In addition, participants will recognize how to evaluate for the presence of pneumothorax and pleural effusion.
 
 

At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the basic concept of the ultrasound technique, basic physics, and the selection of appropriate transducers.
  2. Learn how to use ultrasound to evaluate ventricular function and filling.
  3. Learn how ultrasound can be used to assess for a pneumothorax, endotracheal intubation and a full stomach.
