What Will I Learn?
  • Learning Objectives (EDTU X-Resuscitation)At the end of this program, learners will be able to:·Generate advanced cardiac views (parasternal long axis, parasternal short axis, apical 4 chamber, subxiphoid and inferior vena cava views) and lung views.·Identify cardiac pathology, such as: cardiac tamponade, decreased ejection fraction, acute and chronic right ventricular strain.·Identify an abnormal inferior vena cava, either flat versus plethoric. ·Identify lung pathology, such as: pneumothorax, pleural effusion, A and B lines and pneumonia.·Integrate both cardiac and lung scanning into the care ofpatients presenting with shortness of breath, chest pain and shock.·Discuss the potential pitfalls and errors in performing and interpreting these scans.·Accurately track a needle for central venous catheterization using both an in- and out-of-plane approach after a period of deliberate practice.

Requirements
  • EDTU XEDTU X is a series of advanced courses for those who have completed and consolidated their basic skills. Various modules will be combined into one-day courses and offered at training hubs across Canada. Each day can accommodate twenty-four learners. The course is relevant for emergency physicians, critical care physicians, internists and family physicians.Currently available is DzEDTU X-Resuscitationdz which encompasses advanced cardiac skills, inferior vena cava assessment, lung evaluation and US guided-central venous catheterization. Future modules will include gallbladder, kidney, procedural modules (i.e. nerve blocks, paracentesis, fracture reduction, etc.) and pediatric topics.
  • Students will need to have taken a basic or introductory bedside ultrasound course such as CAEP's EDTU (Emergency Department Targeted Ultrasound) Course
  • Like EDTU, EDTU X maximizes hands-on instruction time by using a high instructor to participant ratio, and by requiring that instructional lectures be watched by participants prior to the start of the course. EDTU X also focuses on the clinical integration of PoCUS skills by using cases on course day to review pathology and clinical management.
