Description

Welcome to Nickel POCUS - October 2019 EDE Ultrasound Bootcamp


Please read the instructions carefully before registering

We are hosting an ultrasound training “Bootcamp” for emergency physicians in Sudbury, Ontario on the weekend of October 5th , 2019. We need real people for the physicians to practice on. Each scanning session pays $50 in cash. The scanning sessions are typically scheduled for 2-3 hours. . The ultrasound scan is like those done for pregnant women and involves no harmful radiation.

Do not be confused by the use of the term "model", we need real people to practice on. So, we are looking for models of all shapes, sizes and ages It is easier to scan thinner people and tougher to scan people who are more heavy set. This is why we are requesting that thinner people sign up for the first half of the day on the Saturday and that heavier set people sign up for the 2nd half of the day on Saturday as well as any time on Sunday. As the doctors skills improve over the course of the 2-day Bootcamp, they need to learn how to scan more challenging cases.

You will be scanned over the chest, back, and abdomen. The participants of the Bootcamp will be looking at the heart, lungs, and large veins. Loose, comfortable clothing, such as a sports top and shorts are recommended. Towels will be provided.

Thank you for your support in helping our physicians learn a valuable new skill that can save lives!

Instructions:

  • Register for only one of the 2 hour sessions
  • Models must be over the age of 18 years
  • Arrive 15 minutes before the scanning session you registered for begins
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing, sports tops (bras) and shorts are recommended
  • Above average body weight models, if possible to sign up for Saturday afternoon or Sunday sessions
  • If you register and are unable to make the session, notify the event organizer as soon as possible so a replacement can be arranged.
Email event organizer if you have any questions.
