LEARN LUNG ULTRASOUND

WHAT IS LUS?

Interest in Lung Ultrasound is growing fast and the future of this powerful tool amongst adult and paediatric respiratory professionals is promising. It is especially interesting to those working on critical care areas, acute respiratory/surgical wards, respiratory out-patients clinics and community respiratory teams

Alongside your current clinical assessment, Lung Ultrasound has the potential to guide, monitor and evaluate your chest treatment techniques in real-time. Once skilled in its use you will be able to assess the effectiveness of your treatments with a diagnostic tool that can outperform chest xrays and auscultation in many lung pathologies.

Be more accurate in your diagnosis by visualising the status of the pleura, lungs and diaphragm. Choose treatment options that are more specific to the patients needs and give you a better chance of eliciting a positive outcome.

Enhancing Care with Ultrasound

Visions & Values:

  • To enhance patient care with advanced diagnostics.
  • To up skill healthcare professionals and maximise their potential.
  • To build a supportive community of peers.
  • To facilitate future research opportunities through collaboration.
