E-FAST Exam Made Easy: Learn Point of Care Ultrasound Online
 

CONFIDENTLY PERFORM & INTERPRET THE FAST ULTRASOUND EXAM

Need to learn FAST for your job or rotation in the trauma or emergency setting?  Looking to improve your FAST technique & efficiency?

In FAST Exam Explained Clearly, ultrasound expert & ED physician Joshua Jacquet, MD illustrates a straightforward system that will have you performing FAST & Extended FAST Exams efficiently and accurately.  

The Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (FAST) has become an integral part of a trauma survey, and is performed immediately after the primary survey of the ATLS protocol…

… and for good reasons: FAST achieves similar results in detecting hemoperitoneum as both CT scan and diagnostic peritoneal lavage, but is faster, cheaper, and avoids radiation or an invasive procedure. 

Additionally, the Extended FAST Exam (EFAST) will detect hemopericardium, hemothorax, & pneumothorax.



Many trauma patients have internal injuries that are not apparent on physical exam.  A properly performed EFAST identifies significant bleeding into the peritoneal, pleural, or pericardial spaces and expedite a potentially life-saving intervention.

Watch this video series now for a clear and enjoyable approach to mastering the FAST & EFAST bedside Exams.

    It is explained very clearly. Congratulation

    THOMAS POWER, PA-C

    Really enjoyed the course. As a PA who worked in ophthalmology for many years I did thousands of A scans and many B scans. This course leaves me wanting to actually perform some ultrasounds as well as learn more about the various applications for ultrasound. The systematic presentation of the concepts in the course and their continual reinforcement as the lectures progress is very helpful. Thank you for a very practical and entertaining course!

    ALAN CASHELL, MD

    Thanks a bunch. I'm trying to incorporate ultrasound into an anatomy course for PA students but was never trained in it. Your course was a big help.
