Ultrasound Basics for Midwives – Midwifery Wisdom Experience 2023 Live Class
Standalone live class at the Midwifery Wisdom Experience 2023 will be 8 hours on Monday November 13th.
Have a butterfly or pocket ultrasound? This course will help orientate your use of the POCUS transducer while performing non-diagnostic exams in the office. Here you will learn best practices on how to hold the transducer (leading edge, transverse/sagittal (long) planes), where to place transducer for each trimester, angling and toggling, normal anatomy and organs orientation on screen, capacity of equipment (setting for exams in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester, M-mode, fetal heart sounds, measuring CRL, etc) and much more. Midwives, what you don’t know, just might be endangering you and your client. Additionally, radiology reports can be confusing, so let’s talk more about what the radiologist “might” mean in the diagnostic reports you receive. This course is not meant to fully train or certify midwives to become ultrasound technologists, but to help them learn how to use the medical equipment they are already using.
This is a hybrid class with online and live portions, participants must complete the online portion before attending the live class. Open to all, no experience necessary, CEU’s and certificate of completion provided.
