Point of Care Ultrasound

Accredited by ASUM, ACEM, ACCRM and CICM, this course provides the theoretical backbone for learning point of care ultrasound. Used by the University of Sydney for their course on ultrasound in Critical Care, these 13 modules will transform you from being a novice user of ultrasound in your clinical practice to being an expert.

It  will guide you through your ultrasound learning step by step, to make your clinical practice of ultrasound safe and enjoyable. It is designed to be simple, but complete.

It has been approved for 10.5 CPD hours by the College of Emergency Physicians (ACEM)  and the College of Intensive Care (CICM)

Echocardiography during cardiac arrest

Text Genevieve Carbonatto The management of cardiac arrest has been intensively studied over the past 20 year and other than early and good quality CPR and early defibrillation in VF, very little has shown to improve the prognosis in cardiac arrest. The last 20 years has shown that high dose adrenaline, vasopressin, supplementary oxygen, treatment Read more about Echocardiography during cardiac arrest[…]

Physics of Ultrasound

Physics of Ultrasound

 

This e learning is the entire physics lecture series by  Roger Gent. It covers the physical properties of ultrasound, transducer and beamforming concepts, knobology, resolution and harmonics, image artifacts, common errors in sonography caused by inappropriate technical selections or choices,  Doppler – basic physics, colour, artifacts and more, bioeffects and safety and finally  MI/MT phantoms.

The lectures have been split into small sections accompanied by a brief summary and some multiple choice questions. Much is also taken from his excellent book “Applied Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound” available through ASUM.

Roger Gent has had an  involvement in diagnostic ultrasound for than 40 years, with particular interest in paediatric sonography  and the Physics of Ultrasound. He has lectured on the physics of ultrasound for many years.  He is the author or co-author of more than seventy articles, has received several awards from professional ultrasound bodies, is an Honorary Fellow of ASUM and was a member of the ASUM DMU Board of Examiners for twenty years. He was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2009, for services to Paediatric Ultrasound.

His lectures are a must for all those sitting ultrasound exams, whether as sonographers (the DMU)  or as doctors (the DDU).
