Lung Ultrasound Made Easy - Point of Care Technique Online
 

TAKE YOUR CLINICAL SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL - FAST & ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS AT THE BEDSIDE THAT "PRACTICALLY FEELS LIKE CHEATING." 

Lung Ultrasound (LUS) is becoming a critical skill for clinicians of all levels.  LUS has proven to be useful in a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions.  As a result, It is rapidly gaining popularity across many different medical specialties.

Lung Ultrasound is relatively easy to learn, quick to perform at the bedside, and outperforms the accuracy of a chest X-ray for most lung conditions…

In fact, LUS rivals the accuracy of CT imaging for acute respiratory failure - without the radiation.  Therefore, LUS can safely be utilized in all patient populations (including pediatrics and pregnancy), both inpatient and outpatient.

    the course explained everything very clearly and the quizzes help me understand it more

    DAVID NEMETH, MD

    Lung ultrasound is often not well explained. Relatively new area with a significant number of signs to understand. This was a very clear explanation of the signs and their significance. The explanation of lung US being predominantly the consequence of artifact was an important point as I hadn't considered the signs in this way before.

    ANDREW YOCUM

    Amazing course. As a practicing EM physician a few years out of residency this course will improve my usage of lung ultrasound drastically. Dr Jacquet really walks you through step by step how to preform and how to analyze the lung US. Well done. Highly recommend.
