1:00-6:00 PM Pre-Conference Offering: Half-Day Point-of-Care Ultrasound  Workshop (Fee Required)
Workshop Director: David Kantor, MD
Faculty: Walid Alrayashi, MD, Karen Boretsky, MD, Nelson Burbano- Vera MD, Andrea Gomez Morad, MD, Daniel Vo, MD

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will become familiar with the basic concept of the ultrasound technique, basic physics, and the use of appropriate transducers. Participants will gain knowledge of using the ultrasound to evaluate patients' volume status by evaluation of the heart using some basic trans-transthoracic views. Participants will gain practical skills in evaluating airways and use of the ultrasound for patients with difficult airway. In addition, they will be taught how to evaluate lungs and pleura by utilizing this diagnostic method.
