EDE 3 Course Information

Complete hands-on ultrasound education

Join us this March at Sun Peaks, British Columbia for a fantastic program and resort vacation.


EDE 3 is a three day program held once per year that explores a variety of advanced point of care ultrasound applications. Topics can include:

  • RV cardiac assessment
  • Cardiac wall motion abnormalities
  • Cardiac Diastology
  • Cardiac Valvulopathy

Regional anesthesia:

  • popliteal sciatic
  • superficial cervical
  • paravertebral
  • TAP
  • posterior tibial
  • interscalene
  • erector spinae
  • Appendicitis
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Cricothyrotomy assistance
  • Endotracheal tube position confirmation
  • Shoulder joint and rotator cuff
  • Transesophageal Echo
  • Transcranial scan for mass effect and subdural hemorrhage
  • Testicular torsion
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm

Participants start with a review of basic cardiac imaging and then get to explore the more advanced views. Several of the most popular nerve blocks will also be reviewed. For the rest of the scanning sessions, students get to choose what applications from the EDE 3 manual they wish to try at the ultrasound stations.
