Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) assessment is fast becoming an integral way to make a fast and accurate assessment of patients for clinical decision-making. It is performed at the bedside and has been proven to be accurate and repeatable for serial assessments of unstable patients to help guide their care. Some have stated that “ultrasound will soon replace the stethoscope”.
This course teaches CRNAs, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physicians, and other allied health professionals the crucial skill of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) as an assessment tool.
