Paeds-US

This Basic Ultrasound for Paediatrics course is intended to give a strong foundation in using Point-of-Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) equipment, obtaining useful views and understanding the applications of PoCUS in the care of children in acute and emergency settings.

You will learn how to rapidly familiarise yourself with an ultrasound machine making the appropriate probe selection and instrument adjustments in order to obtain useful images.

You will practice obtaining PoCUS images of the lungs, heart, abdominal organs, veins, nerves and foreign bodies. You’ll scan on real, healthy children and adult volunteers, as well as simulators with pathologies.

By the end of this course, you will be able to handle a range of different ultrasound machines, including hand-held devices. You will understand the basis for different probe selection, how to adjust depth and gain and to use freeze, colour-flow Doppler and M-mode. You will understand how to optimise an ultrasound image. You will learn how to use ultrasound to guide a needle or cannula.
