POINT-OF-CARE ULTRASOUND (POCUS)
(Full Day)
8:00 AM-5:00 PM

With the growing recognition of the value of perioperative point of care ultrasound, SPAQI is excited to offer its POCUS bootcamp (or precourse, or whatever we’re calling it.) In this course we’ll be covering the basics of bedside cardiac, lung, and abdominal ultrasound with a focus on perioperative applications. With 12 hours of online content available for review prior to the course, we’ll spend our day together focused on hands-on practice on live models, with minimal lectures but some case reviews and plenty of time for discussion. For those applicants considering the American Society of Anesthesiologists Certificate of Completion in Diagnostic POCUS, this course will fulfill the requirements for Part 2 (Evidence of Training.) Space is limited to 16 participants. Registration is open for this precourse.



BACK TO BASICS: COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF PREOPERATIVE EVALUATION

The Perioperative Medicine Summit is the premier meeting for learning the latest advances in perioperative medicine, hearing from international leaders in the field, and networking with other clinicians focused on the care of surgical patients. However, some attendees may be new to perioperative medicine or desire a refresher on the basics of the comprehensive preoperative evaluation. This pre-course focuses on all aspects of the comprehensive evaluation and will help clinicians new to perioperative medicine gain the knowledge and confidence necessary to perform preoperative evaluation on complex medical patients. For those with experience in perioperative medicine, the pre-course is also valuable as a refresher on all aspects of the preoperative evaluation and offers insights into evolving approaches to perioperative care.An additional fee is required to attend this pre-course and this workshop can be added when registering for the Summit starting November 15.
