Summary of event:

Box Courses is delivering this 2-day POCUS course which is available to book for one or both days.

Day one is on FAMUS (Focused Acute Medicine Ultrasound) / FUSIC (Focused Ultrasound in Intensive Care) to give the user the skills to quickly assess the clinical status of an unwell patient. FAMUS/FUSIC teaches clinicians how to perform a bedside ultrasound scan which assesses the lungs, abdomen, vasculature for IV access, and lower limbs for DVT.

Day two is FUSIC-Heart. Formerly known as FICE, this course teaches clinicians how to perform a bedside ultrasound scan to quickly assess the functioning of the heart in a critically unwell patient. This is a fantastic introduction to echo.

You will be provided with e-learning prior to the event to make sure you can maximise the on-the-day learning experience. Each course is a half-day (morning or afternoon) and will be taught in small groups for more hands-on scanning time.

There is a 20% discount available to non-doctors.

Price: £350 per day & £600 when booked together
