OPTIONAL MINICOURSE: Ultrasound: Going Beyond Basics and Into the Resuscitation Room

Join Dr Brian Buchanan in a case based small group format, as he takes you beyond the basics of bedside ultrasound, to a time and place where seconds count: the resuscitation room! This mini course assumes that you have a basic working knowledge of ED ultrasound, and will use case based and small group "hands on" ultrasound coaching to help you find the cardiac, chest and abdomen views that will help you save a life. Class size is limited. Sign up early!
