Course description

What will you receive from this course?

  • A straightforward 4 step approach for evaluating acute abdominal pain in an adult and asking the right questions (useful for clinic, emergency, and hospital settings).
  • An overview of many of the most common and life-threatening causes of acute abdominal pain — and the best imaging choice to evaluate them.
  • Practical strategies to narrow an abdominal pain differential diagnosis based on associated symptoms.
  • Interesting case studies for decision-making practice and to reinforce what you've learned.


What topics are covered?

Appendicitis, RUQ pain, LLQ pain, RLQ pain, LUQ pain, epigastric pain, suprapubic pain, extra-abdominal causes of abdominal pain, periumbilical pain, DKA, MI, diffuse abdominal pain, hepatitis, cholecystitis, cholangitis, ultrasound, McBurney's Point, inguinal hernia, nephrolithiasis, IBS, mesenteric adenitis, diverticulitis, free air under the diaphragm, pancreatitis, gastritis pain, splenic abscess, gastric ulcer, urinary tract infection, intermittent abdominal pain, porphyria, shock, peritonitis, BRBPR, ruptured aortic aneurysm, intussusception, hyperactive bowel sounds, jaundice, PID, rebound tenderness, nausea and vomiting, & and many others...


Is this course "comprehensive"?

No (that would take a long time).  Dr. Seheult provides a straightforward approach to evaluate abdominal pain and valuable clinical perspective of important causes of abdominal pain.  Learn a framework of acute abdominal pain that makes adding additional knowledge easier.

Explained clearly , very good course, too short though. I would've loved to get some info about abdominal pain in children and more about abdominal Rx. Great cases, scenarios were very well presented

Very well explained and easy to understand. Stepwise approach taken to evaluation abdominal pain. Thank you!!!

Informative. Good format. Disappointing for those who don't read xrays that abd film was not explained, but all others were. Annoying to have to sit through whole intro again for each case study-waste of my time.
by Daniel Sturdevant
Great course. I wish there was a little more time spent on some of the differential slides, but that’s what the pause button is for. I would like to see more on some of these individual conditions and more case studies in an expanded course. Well worth the money I paid though.

Enjoyed the tour of the abdomen, would like to see some case studies as well please.

Overall great explanation, but I was hoping for info on how to diagnose, and explanation using real cases.

Great summary of the key points an acute abdomen.
by Ron Burnham
Well organized approach to a complex set of organ systems and potential pathologies. Very practical.

Short but good narrative lecture of various causes of Acute abdominal pain. looking for lectures on individual morbid conditions in detail.

Would like to work through some casees

Not bad. Keeps everything simple.

Thank you!! Loved it! I appreciated the tips on ultrasound vs CTscan.
by Ari Rasori, NP
Great review of the pertinent findings in abdominal pain. Since the list of differentials is so large, having a systematic approach is helpful! Thank you!!
