While Covid-19 appears to have been controlled in some parts of the world, case numbers continue to rise in epidemic rates in other localities.
Clinician-performed ultrasound (CPUS) and Point-of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) have emerged as uniquely useful tools in the rapid diagnosis of many morbidities of the disease including acute respiratory failure, hypoxia, lung injury, air-space disease, intravascular volume derangements, and cardiogenic shock.
Additional advantages of PoCUS are its rapid deployability, the feasibility of serial examinations, its relatively limited exposure to healthcare providers (other than those already in the patient’s room for other reasons), and the relative ease of equipment disinfection.
Health care providers around the world have been developing varying approaches to the use of ultrasound in this setting based on local conditions.
For this reason, WINFOCUS is presenting a series of webinars highlighting how experts are adapting this technology to their own practice setting.
The format will be through discussion of cases, in which the presenter will focus on key aspects of image generation, interpretation as well as clinical diagnosis and management. During the webinar participants will be able to address specific queries or comments to the moderator, who will present them as time permits to the presenter.
The webinar “PoCUS for acute respiratory failure in the time of COVID-19: critical care cases from Toronto. Part 2” will take place on August 6, 2020 at 10.30 a.m. EDT, USA, (1630 hours in most of Europe, and 0730 hours, PST).
