Critical Care Echocardiography Course

This two day workshop aims to address focused echocardiography in critical care. The workshop is an approved College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) course, with syllabus covering focused critical care echocardiography (2D echo), as well as an overview of more advanced echocardiographic features such as colour flow imaging, Doppler studies and advanced haemodynamic calculations.

Delivered by highly skilled experienced critical care clinicians and sonographers, this hands-on workshop is delivered in small groups with a high number of faculty and a large proportion of the course dedicated to scanning.
