In the first part of this module the basics of echocardiography, required for assessment of shock, will be taught in a theoretical and practical session.
The second part deals with ultrasound of the abdominal aorta for exclusion of an aneurysma of the abdominal aorta (AAA).
The RUSH protocol, for exploration of etiology of medical shock, integrates the views of modules 1 and 2, and will be reiterated in the simulation session (module 4).

With this module you will be able to get the four basic views of cardiac ultrasound, and will be able to recognize poor/moderate/good function, recognise important right ventricular dilation and detect pericardial fluid. You will be able to recognize a normal aorta and exclude a AAA if good visualisation is possible. You will know the RUSH protocol to help you differentiate medical causes of shock.
