WINFOCUS is the world leading scientific organization committed to developing point-of-care ultrasound practice throughout in-hospital and out-of-hospital critical scenarios, aiming for the overall worldwide improvement of the community healthcare.
WINFOCUS ULTRASOUND LIFE SUPPORT Basic Level 1 – Provider (USLS BL1P) Course is an internationally recognised program with training on ultra sound as a tool for managing critically ill.
The two day workshop will target on focused assessment of the clinical condition ultrasonically and support in carrying out bed side procedures in patients.
Assessment will be in a structured approach similar to evaluation of critically ill in the form of Airway Breathing. Circulation etc. Point of care assessment will go further in helping invasive procedures under the guidance of ultrasonic visualisation.
The training which has a very short learning curve will help physicians in diagnosing and managing critically ill with time for such steps reduced remarkably.
Initial lectures on how ultrasound can be used to diagnose critical conditions at bed side will lead to hands on training on individual basis for each trainee. Due to the current Covid situation the didactic lectures will be via zoom by our WIFOCUS instructor to the participants done live.
While the hands on training and credentialing will be done by POCUS trained Emergency Physicians on site complying with precautions to minimise the risk of Covid infection.
The course is structured to train complete novices to carry out Point of Care Ultra Sonography.
