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.

    This course presented good, concise information in a way that anyone with basic medical knowledge could understand. I especially appreciated that the quizzes for each video had immediate feedback, and reasoning for both why an answer was wrong if selected incorrectly, or why an answer was correct when selected correctly.

    No mention has been made about the position of probe.

    ALEXANDRIA RODRIGUEZ

    I really liked how clear and concise each video was. I feel like I have a good understanding of lung ultrasounds after having taken this course. The quizzes give you a good take away on what you should know overall and it helps that i can see which questions I got wrong and why.

    ANDREW SANDERS

    Excellent course and very useful. Quizzes at the end of each video are very beneficial for remembering these concepts. I'm sure I will be viewing the course again when I need a refresher.

    ROBERT FORSTOT, MD

    Excellent introduction to lung ultrasound. Repeats key principles numerous times so it even sinks into my thick skull! I had previously purchased Dr Lichtenstein's book, but I am a visual learner and needed this course before I could hope to understand his textbook.

    IGOR KOŠUTIĆ, MD

    Very clear and concise.

    ANDO RAVONINJATOVO

    very informative and help to understand well.
