Ultrasound allows the treating clinician to exploit the rapid, portable and repeatable nature of the technique to assist in decision making for those with shock, respiratory failure or in need of invasive procedures.

This will include didactic and hands-on sessions, with emphasis on image acquisition, image interpretation and clinical integration.
