Canadian Resuscitative Ultrasound Course


Registration for the 9th annual Canadian Resuscitative Ultrasound Course is now live!


The 2 day course (with the option of a 3rd half-day) is being held on August 15th, 16th (and 17th) 2018 at the sophisticated CSTAR facility at University Hospital in London, Ontario. This is the biggest and most comprehensive course of its kind offered in Canada. It is ideal for any clinician involved in resuscitation, such as intensivists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists or internists. 


Message from the Director

In 2018, resuscitation cannot occur effectively without ultrasound. Over the past 9 years we have finely tuned our course to deliver the most essential point-of-care ultrasound skills to our participants at a 2:1 ratio from nationally recognized faculty.
— Robert Arntfield, Course Director

Resuscitative US Simulation Course

The simulation module we offered in 2016 seemed to add a lot to the course. This year participants will have the option of an additional half day enrichment course, featuring high fidelity patient and ultrasound simulators, to help integrate their US skills into real time resuscitations.
— Rob Leeper, Simulation Course Director

Here's what our past attendees had to say

“Lots of patients to practice on and rotate through to see the different body habitus/shape changing the image generation.”
— G.O.
“The entire course was a great learning experience. Learned the ease of assessing the lungs to differentiate pathologies.”
— D.R.
“I am now less ‘scared’ of using US as I feel like I have more guidance and familiarity with it.”
— J.L.
“Will start to implement the fundamental ECHO interpretation I learned into my future practice.”
— S.K.
“Coming into course blind and having flipped classroom made it an effective learning experience.”
