AACES Ultrasound life Support Course

We are glad to work with critical care physicians, emergency physicians, physicians, surgeons, anaesthetist, nurse practitioners, residents, medical officers and healthcare workers. Supported AACES (Alexandra Academy for Clinical & Emergency Sonography) Ultrasound Life Support Course on 29 April 2024 at KHOO TECK PUAT HOSPITAL with Fujifilm Sonosite latest ultrasound system for the hands-on training. 

About the course:

Specifically designed for healthcare providers who are exploring point of care ultrasound to enhance management of the critically ill patients. Lectures are condensed and delivered in an interactive format. The Hands-on Training is the cornerstone of the program. During these sessions, trainees will be guided to perform bedside scans on volunteers. With 5 hours set aside for practical and keeping the trainer to trainee ratio at maximum of 1:5, participants will have ample opportunities to practise during the Hands-on Training sessions.

Learning Objectives:
  • Perform focused assessment of the proximal deep venous system of the lower limbs (DVT), heart (Heart), inferior vena cava (IVC), peritoneal space (Morrison’s pouch), abdominal aorta (Aorta), and lung (Pleura)
  • Screen for and identify the 4 major classes of shock: hypovolemic, distributive, cardiogenic and obstructive shock.
  • Perform chest ultrasound for the diagnosis of pneumothorax, pleural effusion and interstitial syndrome.
  • Perform cardiac ultrasound for the diagnosis of pericardial effusion, systolic left ventricular failure and right heart strain.
  • Perform extended-FAST exam for the diagnosis of free intra-peritoneal, pleural and pericardial fluid
  • Perform abdominal exam for the diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
  • Perform lower limb venous examination for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
  • Perform IVC assessment for collapsibility and distensibility.e
  • Perform airway ultrasound to locate cricothyroid membrane and cervical oesophagus
  • Perform ocular ultrasound to assess pupil reactivity and estimate intracranial pressure
  • Perform focused ultrasound during cardiac arrest
  • Evaluate for volume status, fluid responsiveness and fluid tolerance.
  • Integrate key sonographic findings to guide resuscitation of the critically ill.

Looking forward to work with the team again :)
