Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will know:

  • How to use Point-of-Care neurosonology in the initial examination of patients with neurological emergencies,
  • How to use Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in the initial examination of patients with neurological emergencies to recognize extracranial injury and associated diseases,
  • How to use POCUS in the initial examination of patients in shock.

Synopsis of Workshop

Many patients with neurological emergencies also have concomitant extracranial involvement, whether traumatic or non-traumatic. This workshop aims to provide participants with the basic ultrasound skills to evaluate the presence of intracranial hypertension and intracranial haemorrhage, to rule out/ in the presence of chest or abdominal trauma, to rule out/ in cardiovascular catastrophes and to distinguish between the different causes of shock. The workshop will be based on an instructive pragmatic presentation of basic ultrasonographic skills and their use in critically ill patients, mainly through case reports.
