EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT ECHO FOR THE ADVANCED USER
EDE 2 is an advanced emergency ultrasound course. Although it brings you new indications, EDE 2 retains the principles of the original EDE course including content that sticks to the essentials, an emphasis on learning image generation, and the straightforward and safe incorporation of POCUS into clinical practice. EDE 2 is a 2-day course. Day 1 consists of completing online modules. The online modules are in cutting edge and interactive format. Participants can go through the online material at their own pace, at a time of their own choosing, and as often as they like. Under the new format, the live part of the course has dropped down to 1 day and consists mostly of scanning, with brief mini-lectures and/or demos to remind participants how to do the scan.
You should only take EDE 2 if you have taken a basic course and use ultrasound on a regular basis. CEUS (now CPOCUS) Independent Practitioner status is not required but it is preferred.
