The world's largest faculty of nursing”
Nurses with extensive knowledge in the use of ultrasound will be qualified to participate in the care of critically ill patients"
Nursing professionals work in different areas and, in the case of emergency and critical care, it is essential that they have perfect knowledge of the ultrasonographic approach to major syndromes and ultrasound-guided procedures, which will enable them to perform their work more effectively. Specifically, by studying this specialization they will be trained in the use of ultrasound devices in the management of emergency and critical care situations.
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. Today, 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 training on clinical ultrasound, specifying their 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 combine their studies with the rest of their daily obligations, 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"
