Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is a modality that is rapidly becoming a central feature of the diagnostic imaging process in almost all specialties. Its convenience, portability, and ability to image in real time are making it an essential component of the medical examination of the very near future. Not only does it assist to make diagnoses more rapidly, but it also makes numerous procedures easier, from inserting intravenous and central venous pressure lines to pericardiocentesis. This one-day practical workshop will introduce some of the numerous areas relevant to family physicians, in which POCUS plays a revolutionary role.
The workshop will cover the following topics. Each topic presentations will be followed by practical sections on how to use the ultrasound machines based on the presentation content.
- Cardiac and limited compression DVT
COST: R2,500 per person
(space is limited to 24 persons – preference will be given to those registered for the full congress).
