Learn critical care ultrasound and echocardiography from leaders in the field! Join us for the Critical Care Ultrasound and Echocardiography Conference at the premier tertiary medical campus in the Intermountain West, Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. 

Don’t hesitate to explore the many things Utah has to offer like the skiing in the Greatest Snow on Earth and the Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 24 - Feb. 3) in Park City.


This two-day course will provide intensivists, hospitalists, and emergency medicine physicians with a fundamental knowledge base in the application of basic transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography and ultrasound to critically ill patients. You will be taught skills in operating bedside ultrasound systems for basic cardiac, lung, and abdominal ultrasound as well as the use of ultrasound for procedural guidance, with hands-on training with live models and TEE simulators.This course covers much of the content covered by the upcoming national-level certification test in advanced critical care echocardiography from the National Board of Echocardiography.

Target Audience

Physicians who evaluate and treat critically ill patients in the emergency department, intensive care unit, or operating room. This would include emergency medicine physicians and critical care physicians from the specialties of medicine, surgery, anesthesia, and pediatrics.


  • Describe the physics of ultrasound pertinent to operating a critical care ultrasound machine and use the appropriate probe and settings to obtain desired images
  • Illustrate how to use ultrasound for guidance for internal jugular and subclavian vein catheterization
  • Obtain and interpret basic echocardiographic images using the Focused Assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE) exam
  • Discuss the echocardiographic findings in the evaluation of a patient in shock that provide guidance for diagnosis and treatment
  • Review how to obtain lung ultrasound images and the findings specific to pulmonary edema, pneumothorax, and pleural effusion
