Simon Hayward BSc Hons MCSP
Simon is an experienced critical care physiotherapist with 5 years practical use of lung ultrasound to guide, monitor and evaluate chest physiotherapy treatments. As there were limited lung ultrasound training courses for non-medics, Simon developed sonophysio as a way to introduce lung ultrasound to other members of the MDT.
He has undergone a robust competency based training programme covering image acquisition and image interpretation having been taught by an intensive care consultant with Intensive Care Society ultrasound mentor status.
Simon is currently working on research in the use of lung ultrasound as a clinical tool for physiotherapists.
