Why This Course?

The Need

  • Point of care ultrasound imaging has added great value to all faculty of medicine particularly in intensive care units and emergency rooms.
  • Value addition is far higher in neonatal intensive care units as we are dealing with highly vulnerable and non-communicative patients.
  • Bedside ultrasound is now considered as new stethoscope in neonatal management.
  • Less than 40% of the consultants and less than 10% of postgraduates in our country can do bedside ultrasound in neonates (Unpublished questionnaire survey done by NeoSCAn group)
  • Propagation of this knowledge and facilitation of this skill is both essential and urgent in current scenario.

The Challenge

  • Point of care ultrasound in Neonatology a young domain – a smaller number of trainers available.
  • Getting a real (normal) baby for training and demonstration is difficult.
  • Sick babies cannot be used for training because of their vulnerability.
