EGLS Course in Glasgow March 29th and 30th 2017

The Echo Guided Life Support course is the baby of Jean-François Lanctôt and Maxime Valois, two Emergency and ICU docs from Canada. Its focus is all on the critically ill and shocked patient and using PoCUS to nail the diagnosis and guide your treatment.

The course is coming to Glasgow on March 29th and 30th, 2017 and it’s a great opportunity to pick up and brush up your resuscitative ultrasound skills.

You can register over on EventBrite and check out the programme below

The course is being organised locally by “Critical Care Events in Scotland.” These were the guys who organised EMCrit to come over and talk just before SMACC in Dublin

 

Conflict of interest statement:

  • I and some others from pocusireland.org have been invited to teach on the course and have had my €55 flight covered and I’m promised a roof over my head. No beer, favours or cash changed hands in exchange for publishing this post 🙂
