Join renowned ultrasound expert Dr. Fred Ushakov as he teaches essential POCUS exams to evaluate fetal health and gestation development in the 2nd trimester.
In this 1-hour webinar, you'll learn how easy it is to use handheld ultrasound to rapidly perform 2nd trimester POCUS exams. Dr. Ushakov will teach you how to:
- Locate the placenta and fetal position in seconds
- Confirm fetus viability and heart health
- Take accurate BPD measurements and head circumference
- Determine the level of amniotic fluid to indicate pathological circumstances
Bringing point-of-care ultrasound to the bedside of expectant mothers has had a profound effect in recent years as an extension of the physical examination and for rapid answers to patient symptoms. Join Dr. Ushakov to learn how to bring POCUS to your practice today!
Different from in-depth prenatal ultrasound examinations, POCUS is a focused study at the patient's bedside to rapidly obtain high-quality images and real-time clinically relevant information.
On October 5th, renowned educator Dr. Fred Ushakov invites obstetricians, midwives, primary practice doctors and emergency physicians to explore essential point-of-care exams that can be performed in any setting during second trimester pregnancies to monitor the health of mothers and their fetuses. Using real patient cases recently captured on video, Dr. Ushakov will help you hone your obstetrical POCUS skills with high-definition handheld ultrasound.
While POCUS brings clinical value at all stages of gestation from 5 weeks to term, this webinar will focus on exams for the second trimester. You'll learn to confirm fetal viability and heart health in minutes. Dr. Ushakov will also share POCUS techniques to visualize the position of the placenta and the baby and to assess the level of amniotic fluid.
Sharing real-time ultrasound imaging brings confidence to both the clinician and patient. Don't miss this dynamic and educational webinar with Dr. Ushakov and your host Dr. Oron Frenkel - register today!
