EGLS Course in Glasgow March 29th and 30th 2017

17 Jan

The Echo Guided Life Support course is the baby of Jean-François Lanctôt and Maxime Valois, two Emergency and ICU docs from Canada. Its focus is all on the critically ill and shocked patient and using PoCUS to nail the diagnosis and guide your treatment.

The course is coming to Glasgow on March 29th and 30th, 2017 and it’s a great opportunity to pick up and brush up your resuscitative ultrasound skills.

  • I and some others from have been invited to teach on the course and have had my €55 flight covered and I’m promised a roof over my head. No beer, favours or cash changed hands in exchange for publishing this post 🙂
