Point of Care Ultra-Sound
The 4th revolution is here with us in the name of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT). No one can stop it. Wisdom requires that you ride on it.
Point of Care Ultra-Sound (PoCUS) is an outcome of the ICT revolution. Days, when Ultra-sound machine was heavy gadgets mounted on trolleys, are gone. Currently, with a smartphone and a pen-like prop, you can diagnose foetal mal-presentation, a fracture and internal bleeding. You better believe it…!
Joining the PoCUS course will open up a window for you to see almost endless possibilities of ensuring that you make the right diagnosis of your patients’ condition, more so emergency and life-threatening ones. Remember that most of our unspeakable mortality rates are attributable to our lack of technology and the time spent transporting patient along hospital corridors, or from one hospital to another, for purpose of getting an ultra-sound, for example. Signs are that this is going to be a thing of the past, thanks to PoCUS technology. A portable mini-ultrasound is going to be just like a stethoscope, to help you support your impression of your patients status.
Become an early bird to make use of new technology to manage your patients effectively. The course is open to all clinical staff – Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, Clinical Officers, Traumatologist, Radiologist and any health worker in private practice.
