Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound

2013 Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound
March 14 – 15, 2013
The George Washington University Hospital
900 23rd Street, NW
6th Floor
Washington, DC 20037
Course Director: Joanna S. Cohen, M.D.
Course web site: www.GWEmergencyUltrasound.com

About the Course
The use of bedside ultrasound is rapidly increasing in pediatric emergency medicine, but most pediatric emergency physicians have no formal training in bedside ultrasound. Over the past two decades, general emergency physicians have become increasingly proficient with bedside ultrasonography and have developed new uses for emergency ultrasound, mainly in adult patients. It is only recently; however, that the use of bedside ultrasound has gained momentum in pediatric emergency medicine.

Upon completion of the 2-day Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Course, the participant will have practical competency in:

• Demonstrate basic physics of ultrasound and the ability to recognize and identify artifacts.
• Demonstrate ability to obtain proper views for the FAST exam, cardiac, and lung exam.
• Demonstrate proficiency in ultrasound use in standard emergency situations such as difficult vascular access, soft tissue infections, and joint effusions.

Accreditation
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and Children’s National Medical Center. The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Physician CME Credit
