Bedside Ultrasound: heart, lung and vascular access, the basics - Doctors Updates
This course isn’t just a taster. The thorough pre-course e-learning will prepare the doctor for the predominantly hands–on training in Da Balaia. Each section is led by experienced teachers. The course is aimed at any doctors who need relevant clinical information in a timely fashion so that intervention is safe and not delayed.
- Basic theory and equipment
- Echo: recognise LV and RV dysfunction, hypovolaemia / hypervolaemia, pericardial effusion
- Ultrasound of the lungs to recognise pleural effusion and pneumothorax
- Ultrasound for central venous catheters and arterial lines
Candidates on completion will be able to start gaining clinical experience having climbed the steepest part of the learning curve. They will also receive a certificate from Doctors Updates/USabcd. Candidates can claim at least 2 extra CPD points approved by the RCoA for the e-learning component.
To access the e-learning in advance of the course, create an account on http://usabcd.org and register with the code provided to you by Doctors Updates.
USabcd creates e-learning in point-of-care ultrasound. Their vision is to make point-of-care ultrasound training more accessible worldwide. The e-learning is used by major hospitals, leading societies and medical schools in 25 countries.

Who is eligle for concessionary rate registration?
- Retired delegates
- Other medical specialties
- Other health care professionals
- Medical students
As some of the committee and our loyal delegates are now approaching retirement or have already retired, we can now offer reduced registration to those who still wish to attend doctorsupdates meetings as “social delegates”. Concessionary rate registration will be restricted to those who have completely retired from all clinical practice and are no longer on the Clinical Register of the GMC.
People who are continuing to work part time or in the private sector will not be eligible. Delegates from other medical specialties, other health care professionals, and medical students may also wish to attend part of the updates, and the same reduced fees will apply to them. As these groups may wish to attend some academic sessions (or workshops) and the evening talks, and will also be eligible for refreshments and welcome and prize- giving parties, we propose to charge approximately 1/3 of the full registration fee. If you wish to be considered for concessionary rate registration, please register on-line indicate Grade as ‘Other’ and also e-mail email@example.com with your details including, where applicable, date of full retirement from all clinical practice.
