ERstravaganza for Emergency Medicine Personnel
Maverick Medical Education is pleased to announce the release of a new and exciting course for Emergency Medicine providers. Introducing an ultrasound course for patient assessment and regional nerve blocks in the emergency room setting.
Ultrasound for patient assessment has been used in the emergency department with exams such as FAST and eFAST along with RUSH and BLUE protocols. Point-of-Care ultrasound allows a provider to make faster and more accurate diagnoses, improve patient outcomes and treat patients in a more efficient manner sending home happier and healthier patients.
Pain control using ultrasound-guided nerve blocks is becoming a new tool for the emergency medicine practitioner. The opioid epidemic has exposed a vulnerability in our health care system and we can no longer rely on narcotics and other strong medications alone to control trauma and other causes of pain. Ultrasound-guided regional nerve blocks performed by adequately trained ER practitioners at the initial point-of-care provides superior analgesia comparative to any injectable medication.
Maverick offers both powerful ultrasound skill sets in one course. With the assistance of incredibly talented and knowledgeable emergency room professionals, we have put together a course that covers the ultrasound basics: how ultrasound works, the physics behind ultrasound, and how to take advantage of ultrasound’s massive capabilities for patient assessment and treatment in the ER setting.
