St George's - Royal Brompton Neonatal echo course

This is our popular 2 days hands-on clinical course where we teach basic echo skills and basic aspects of congenital heart disease together with the use of echocardiography for the neonatologist.

We start with basic physics relevant to ultrasound and echocardiography followed by interactive demonstration of the anatomy and pathology of the heart. We particularly concentrate on topics relevant to the busy Neonatologist such as assessment of ductal shunting, pulmonary hypertension and management of the hypotensive infant using echocardiography.

The intensive theory sessions are followed by hands on sessions in order to solidify what was learnt in theoretical part of the course. Two of the practical sessions will also involve a visit to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in order to provide better understanding of the use of echocardiography in neonates.

The next Neonatal Echo Course is planned for February 2024
