WINFOCUS FoCUS Workshop
Kaul Skills Lab is the collaborating partner of WINFOCUS in Pakistan.
This blended course on Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FoCUS) that includes e-lectures,videos, evaluation, scenarios, quizzes,
& in-person hands-on skill component of WINFOCUS FoCUS© Course is based on WINFOCUS' 15 years of teaching experience around
the globe. The FoCUS© course is specifically designed for critical care and emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, acute
cardiac care clinicians, and healthcare providers in general, dealing with cardiovascular emergencies. The course is targeted
at those who are new to cardiac ultrasound and covers the use of limited Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) in the setting
of cardiac arrest, peri-resuscitation and shock, and as a screening tool for the unstable patient in the ICU or any emergency
setting. It might also be of interest to more experienced echocardiographers interested in making the ultrasound investigation
of the critically ill patient more effective and ALS-compliant. The course (formerly known as Winfocus Basic Echo, WBE) has
reached its 140th edition since 2008, and has been delivered in more than 50 countries worldwide. Its educational content
conforms to the proceedings of the 1st International Consensus Conference on Focused Cardiac UltraSound (Via G, Hussain A,
et al. International Evidence-Based Recommendations for Focused Cardiac Ultrasound - J AM SOC ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY 2014).
As additional benefit, It prepares for WINFOCUS FoCUS© International Certification.
Focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) is a simplified, clinician-performed application of echocardiography that is rapidly expanding in use,
especially in emergency and critical care medicine. Performed by appropriately trained clinicians, typically not cardiologists, FoCUS
ascertains the essential information needed in critical scenarios for time-sensitive clinical decision making.
This brand new, up-to-date edition (2022) is based on a concept of evidence-based ultrasonography and a thorough description of the
pathophysiology underpinning the taught sonographic signs and patterns. A clinical-sonographic integrated approach facilitates
appropriate FoCUS implementation into real life clinical scenarios. The new flipped classroom format entails an e-Course as
pre-requisite to the workshop. This content is made available also after the workshop for consolidating FoCUS competencies and
skills. Six hours of hands-on training will be provided during the 1 day workshop, with a guaranteed trainer to trainee ratio
of no greater than 1 to 5. Language of formal lectures of the course and e-Learning will be ENGLISH.
