When was the last time you had a continuing education lecture that actually looked like your patients?
Lectures, while a good source of information, can't represent the quantity of abnormal images or the quality that comes with video presentation.
Ultrasound in Trauma and Emergency Medicine, a ten-hour, two CD-ROM product. These CD-ROMs uses interactive multimedia technology to provide education in identifying the primary aspects or the emergency ultrasound exam to include the evaluation of blunt abdominal trauma, right upper quadrant pain, pericardial effusion, ectopic pregnancy, and abdominal aortic aneurysm. It has been custom-designed for the clinical applications that emergency physicians, surgeons, primary care physicians, and sonographers need to learn. It covers both physics and instrumentation while utilizing diagrams, still images and videos.
This series provides:
- Practical advice to help you practice better medicine more efficiently
- Tools to customize lectures for staff and patient education
- Full transcripts of each lecture
- Assistance with transducer placement
- 450 images
- 100 videos from real cases
This CD-ROM features the ability to:
- work through the material at your own pace
- search the entire program to find specific text and images
- take interactive quizzes for self-assessment
- earn CME credits through the automated CME mechanism
- take notes on your own personal "notepad" that can be downloaded or printed
- take a "snapshot" of images to download to your hard drive
- Physics and Instrumentation
- Trauma: the FAST Exam
- Right Upper Quadrant
- Abdominal Aorta and Vena Cava
- Cardiac Findings
- Gynecologic Findings
Upon completion of this program, the learner will:
- describe the sonographic and anatomic components of the emergency and trauma ultrasound exam.
- illustrate the sonographic appearance of pathology encountered during an emergency and trauma ultrasound exam.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) by HealthStream. HealthStream is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.
HealthStream designates this Continuing Medical Education activity to fulfill up to 10 hours in Category 1 credit towards the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he or she spent in the educational activity.
The American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) accepts AMA Category 1 credit for the Physician's Recognition Award from organizations accredited by ACCME.
Abdominal Ultrasound: Principles and Techniques
Perform sonographic examinations of the abdomen and diagnose abnormalities direct from your desktop. While no longer accredited for cME, this seminal work by Dr. Mark Deutchman of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center deserves to be part of the collection of any emergency medicine physician or surgeon.
This interactive CD-ROM teachers you to recognize normal and abnormal sonographic findings in the abdomen. The primary focus is to provide instruction on the essential components of the standard abdominal ultrasound examination as defined by the AIUM and practice in recognizing normal anatomy as well as a wide variety of abnormal findings.
