This year’s SASKSONO conference (SASKSONO18) is shaping up to be pretty exciting with a focus on resuscitative ultrasound (aka Resusonology). Whether you’re a rural doc covering the ED, in flight (HEMS/Air Ambulance), an emergency physician in an urban centre, or a hospital-based clinician managing patients in shock – this is the conference for you! Registration opens Dec 11, 2017!
CONFERENCE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the role of clinical ultrasonography in the care of acute and critically ill patients – specifically the application of focused transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography in the management of patients in shock.
- Draw the right conclusions from new data – focusing on patient safety and improved diagnostic accuracy.
- Effectively communicate resuscitative ultrasound findings to colleagues ranging from pre-hospital to ED and beyond.
- Apply learning in hands-on and simulation sessions to mprove technique and interpretation of scans as well as exploring the choreographic implications associated with the clinical integration of ultrasound to resuscitation.
We kick the weekend off with Echo Guided Life Support (EGLS) as our pre-conference course on Friday March 2nd, 2018. We then go into a largely hands-on and small group learning environment for much of Saturday’s official programming.
Stay tuned – more details to come in the next few weeks!
