WINFOCUS WBE P Course during the 7th NWAC (World Anesthesia Convention) in New York, USA - April 20-23, 2016

For information and inscription: http://www.nwac.org/nwac-workshops.html

The WINFOCUS Basic Echocardiography Course for Providers (WBE P) is targeted at anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and intensivists with limited or no prior experience of bedside ultrasound. It covers using focused cardiac and lung ultrasound during cardiac arrest as well as critical scenarios such as acute hemodynamic instability or dyspnea. This course provides a systematic approach to critical situations, integrating ultrasound into the traditional workup. 

The course teaches participants the principles of image acquisition, their interpretation as well as integrating the information gained through focused ultrasound into clinical decision-making. Through a combination of brief didactic lectures and small group hands-on teaching participants will gain the knowledge and competency to adopt point of care ultrasound into their daily practice.
