Private workshops can also be arranged at individual hospitals for a minimum of 10 participants. For further informtion regarding private workshops please contact us.
Rapid Assessment by Cardiac Echo (RACE) is a one day practical course on the application of ultrasound in assessing the heart and chest in the acute setting.

The objective of RACE is to enable the acute care physician to evaluate:
  • Pericardial effusion/Tamponade
  • Left ventricular contraction
  • Right heart function
  • Right hard preload
  • Pleural effusions
The Rapid Assessment by Cardiac Echo (RACE) Workshop is suited to the physician wishing to learn basic echocardiography as an extension of the physical examination.
