The workshop takes place in two separate modules. The first component involves training in the FAST sequence for emergency department staff and the second component involves the ultrasound emergency.
The FAST module is 8 hours of training focused on basic ultrasound processes to support rapid diagnosis in the emergency room especially for trauma situations. This module is focused on the analysis of special situations and complex simulation exercises to prepare staff for the highest demands in real situations. It is discussed new uses for this versatile tool to support as a complement to the comprehensive review of trauma patients.
The workshop ULTRASOUND IN EMERGENCY AND TRAUMA, has been developed to train, with the most complete information, on management of emergency ultrasound to staff facing day to day the management of patients suffering from traumatic events and medical emergencies at the hospital.
Determine the level of students' knowledge about the use of ultrasound in trauma and emergency in addition to the different methods of examination in the emergency room.
