Introduction: Point of care ultrasound

Basic Physics and Knobology


Airway: Sono Anatomy; SC emphysema,   tracheal   displacement, prandial status. Procedure: Endotracheal intubation, cricothyroidotomy, tracheotomy

Breathing: Lung ultrasound: Assessment: sonological signs, pleural effusion, alveolar consolidation, alveolar interstitial syndrome, pneumothorax; Procedure: Needle aspiration, thoracostomy tube insertion

Circulation: Introduction to  basic echocardiography:

Goals, indications and limitations, cardiac and caval windows. Focussed haemodynamic assessment:  heart morphology/ performance/ filling state, pericardial effusion/ tamponade, IVC variations.
Echo views/ Assessment of LV function; IVC visualisation and variability.

Vascular ultrasound: Deep venous system: deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism; peripheral and central venous catheterization
Abdominal ultrasound: Peritoneal, pleural & pericardial effusion: FAST windows / Paracentesis, DPL, laparotomy
Disability: Optic nerve and pupil abnormalities
