Simulation Session Ultrasound - Evaluation of the respiratory system Supported by GE Healthcare

The purpose of this simulation scenario is to train attendees on how to assess the lung and the diaphragm in a patient with respiratory failure. This will include basic technical approach to lung and diaphragm ultrasound, detection and interpretation of pleural sliding, lung artefacts, diaphragm excursion and thickening. Examples will illustrate how to integrate ultrasound data into clinical management (ventilation setting, weaning, decision-making for specific procedures such as pronation, bronchoscopy, recruitment maneuvers).
