Paediatric Point-of-Care Ultrasound SYMPOSIUM 

A digital case-based symposium by Paediatric POCUS experts from across North America

November 4th 2020

Objectives: 

After this session, participants will be able to… 

  1. Integrate POCUS into the clinical approach to common pediatric emergency presentations (e.g. syncope, limp, abdominal pain) 
  2. Recognize the benefits, nuances, and controversies of POCUS use in critically ill children (resuscitations, traumas) 
  3. Draw from the experiences of experts from across the country to better appreciate the potential challenges of POCUS implementation at different centres 

 

Description: 

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) can be a tremendously helpful tool during your assessment of pediatric patients in a variety of settings. Aimed at physicians who have some basic knowledge of POCUS, this case-based symposium will focus on how POCUS can be integrated into your clinical approach to common pediatric presenting symptoms. POCUS use and its controversies in resuscitation and trauma scenarios will also be discussed. Speakers will consist of pediatric POCUS experts from different sites across the country, giving participants more wide-ranging perspectives of the practice variations and logistical challenges of POCUS integration in different clinical settings.
