- POCUS with Vascular Access is an online course that teaches the use of ultrasound for patient assessment. The course covers the basics of ultrasound physics and anatomy, as well as the specific applications of POCUS in these areas.
Both courses are delivered in an interactive and engaging format, with pre-recorded lectures, interactive quizzes, and hands-on exercises.
