What is the ICS Advanced Ultrasound Course?
Corresponding with the launch of FUSIC (Focused Ultrasound for Intensive Care) - the merger of FICE and CUSIC programmes - the ICS are proud to offer this exciting advanced ultrasound course for Intensive Care Medicine, designed to take your ultrasound skills to the next level. It will introduce how to assess haemodynamics (circulatory pressures, flow and resistance), abdominal organs (kidneys, liver, gallbladder and bowel), advanced lung, the airway and an introduction to the brain (optic nerve diameter and TCD to identify raised ICP) and TOE.
Who is it for?
The course is designed for those who already have some experience with ultrasound. Already use ultrasound in your practice? Already FICE or CUSIC accredited and want to progress? If so, this course is for you. The course is completely hands-on based and so an excellent opportunity for improving your skills. Prior basic theoretical knowledge and basic hands-on technique will be assumed for heart, lung and abdomen (FICE and CUSIC level). No prior experience of brain or TOE scanning is required.
Why register?
There is a huge amount of clinical information that history and physical examination can’t detect but ultrasound can. This course, delivered by international experts in the field of intensive care ultrasound, will ensure that you don’t get left behind in this exciting and rapidly evolving field.

Please note to register for this event, you must have hands on experience in ultrasound.
