RACE (Rapid Assessment by Cardiac Echo) is a transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) course specifically designed for the critical care and acute care physicians. Its objective is to equip physicians in these areas with the skills and knowledge to perform focussed bedside TTE so that common cardiac and haemodynamic disorders can be identified quickly. There is a strong focus on HANDS-ON practice in this course.

Course Content

  • Left heart function
  • Right heart function
  • Pericardial effusion and cardiac tamponade
  • Intravascular volume (fluid status) assessment


The RACEplus course is an extension of the RACE course and normally spans over 2 - 3 days. RACEplus covers the RACE content plus some advanced TTE and critical care general ultrasound topics. These topics include Doppler TTE, lung ultrasound, pleural ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound, vascular ultrasound and ultrasound-guided vascular access. The local organiser decides what extra (1-2) topics are to be included.


There are several courses held throughout the year.
