Neonatal Lung Ultrasound, Echo and Integrated Hemodynamics Conference & Workshop
Greetings from NeoFOCUS-UK, POCUSNEO, and Neopeds Academy!
We are thrilled to announce the upcoming first Neonatal Lung Ultrasound and Integrated Haemodynamics Course in Glasgow, UK. This two-day, hands-on workshop will bring together leading experts and professionals in neonatal lung ultrasound and basic and integrated haemodynamic assessment and pathophysiology-based approaches for sick newborns.
- With a focus on evidence-based practice and hands-on training, attendees can learn from experienced clinicians, researchers, and educators through interactive workshops, case studies, and keynote speeches.
- No prior experience in both lung ultrasound or echocardiography is required, as you will learn during the course.
Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to advance your knowledge and skills in neonatal lung ultrasound and integrated haemodynamics.
