Extended Focused Assessment Sonography for Trauma Exam Course: E-FAST Course

The Extended Focused Assessment Sonography for Trauma Exam (E-FAST) course provides training on paid models how to efficiently perform this critical trauma exam. The E-FAST course will teach you how to quickly assess the pleura for a pneumothorax, pleural space for a hemothorax and the RUQ, LUQ and pelvis for signs of free fluid in the abdomen in the setting of trauma. These skills are also useful for Hospitalist and Critical Care Physicians who are looking for ascites, a pneumothorax or pleural effusions. HPC provides Point-of-Care ultrasound (POCUS) training on paid models including the E-FAST exam and the RUSH exam to quickly diagnose if trauma patients have free fluid in the abdomen, a pneumothorax, a pericardial effusion, hemothorax and can determine the etiology of shock in hypotensive patients (massive PE, tension pneumothorax, hypovolemic shock, cardiac tamponade or cardiogenic shock).

The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform E-FAST exams in addition to endotracheal intubationstylet-guided intubationslaryngeal mask airway (LMA) placementKing tube placement, or fiberoptic intubationscentral venous accessultrasound-guided central line placement, ultrasound-guided peripheral IV accessarterial lines, POCUS exams (RUSH exams), thoracentesisparacentesislumbar punctureschest tube placementpigtail catheter placementneedle thoracostomy, procedural sedation, and ventilator management.
