We offer you the best specialization of the moment so that you can improve your qualifications as a nurse” 

The use of clinical cardiothoracic ultrasound in emergencies and intensive care has become a fundamental part of the nursing field. Therefore, professionals must be up to date in the use of this type of tools, which will allow them to develop their work in a more effective way. Specifically, by studying this specialization they will be trained in the use of ultrasound devices in the management of emergency and critical care situations, with total guarantees of effectiveness and confidence. 

It must be taken into account that clinical ultrasound is a tool that helps to diagnose and treat patients in emergency situations or with intensive care needs. Today, it is one of the most popular and valuable tools for guiding diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. In addition, it has the advantages of portability, accuracy, real-time display, reproducibility and efficiency. 

Technological advances have made it possible to reduce the size of the equipment, making it cheaper and more portable, and have increased the capacity of clinical ultrasound, leading to a notable increase in its applications. Nowadays, more accurate ultrasound diagnosis, safe ultrasound-guided interventions, precise non-invasive hemodynamic evaluations and rapid assessment of traumatic injuries are all possible. 

In this Postgraduate Diploma, TECH offers students the most complete specialization program on clinical ultrasound, specifying its use in the care of patients who find themselves in emergency situations or those who need intensive care. Additionally, as it is a 100% online training, the student will have the opportunity to balance their studies with the rest of their daily commitments, so that they will be able to improve their training in a comfortable way.

Technological advances have led to improved ultrasound scanners, which are becoming more useful and can be used in more situations"
