WINFOCUS brings the level 1 basic critical echocardiography course for the first time in Singapore, happening over 26-27th January 2012.
A course on Echocardiography specifically designed for intensive, critical care and emergency physicians, this course is targeted at physicians who are new to echocardiography, and covers the use of Transthoracic Echocardiography (TIE) in the setting of cardiac arrest/peri-resuscitation, and as a screening tool for the unstable patient in the ICU. This module on basic Echo will include the internationally well-known formats of FEEL (Focused Echocardiography Evaluation in Life support) and FATE (Focused Assessment with Transthoracic Echocardiography), and might also be of interest to more Echo-experienced intensivists or cardiologists wishing to make their focused Echo assessment of the critical patient more effective.
This course represents the second part of an Echo training programme which follows a dedicated E-learning course: participants will have free access to a web-based modular training format in the months preceeding the course, so as to maximize their learning and minimise time spent in formal lectures during the course itself. Interactive clinical scenarios, the EmEchoSimTest, and HOT Sessions, (Hands On Training), therefore represent the core or this course.
