Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension Course: RUSH Exam Course

Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension (RUSH Exam) is a protocol in which the ultrasound is used to diagnose shock in the patient who presents with undifferentiated hypotension.  The Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension exam teaches the clinician how to rapidly identify the etiology of shock by examining the heart for tamponade, right ventricular enlargement and left ventricular function, intravascular volume status (fluid responsiveness), aorta for aneurysm or dissection and the deep veins of the legs for DVT.

The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform RUSH 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 (E-FAST exams), thoracentesisparacentesislumbar puncturechest tube placementpigtail catheter placementneedle thoracostomy, procedural sedation and ventilator management.
