Resuscitation Bootcamp is an intense three day workshop that provides all supervised scans and exams needed to obtain the Canadian Point of Care Ultrasound Society (CPoCUS) certification as an independent practitioner in resuscitation-based applications.

You will practice cardiac scans in parasternal long, parasternal short and apical four-chamber views, along with IVC assessment and lung scans. Emphasis is placed on good technique, efficiency, problem solving the difficult scan, and clinical integration. You will learn to use POCUS for management in shock, arrest, hypotension, and undifferentiated dyspnea.

The CPoCUS certification exams include a written, observed practical, and visual exam. One-on-one instructor supervision is provided during visual and practical exams where pathology is reviewed and clinical scenarios explored during interactive sessions.

Bootcamp provides constant real-time feedback and identifies those needing more time, more practice, and more help.

The goal of bootcamp is to offer the training and practice so the participant can comfortably use POCUS independently in their own department for resuscitation and shock management. It has been designed to meet the requirements for complete CPoCUS certification.
