EDE is Canada’s premier Point-of-Care ultrasound course, and is fully endorsed by the Canadian Point-of-Care Ultrasound Society (CPoCUS). EDE now INCLUDES the Thoracic applications mandated by CPoCUS for their CORE certification. Graduates can therefore enter the CPoCUS IP certification pathway. 

Since 2001, the ED Echo (EDE) course has been taught over 900 times to over 12,000 Canadian physicians and has become the standard of care in large trauma centers, remote settings and Canadian Forces combat units. EDE has continually evolved as the team has gained insight into the way beginners learn this skill. Participants will learn to detect pericardial effusions, intra-abdominal hemorrhage, early intra-uterine pregnancies, pneumothoraces, pleural effusions and AAA’s. 

As of 2014, the EDE Course has placed all of its didactic material on-line. Participants can now read the text and watch the lectures at their own pace. Missed something in a lecture? No problem. Just stop, rewind and watch again. This allows us to provide participants with 25% more hands-on time during the course.

Although it brings you new indications, EDE 2 retains the principles of the original EDE course including content that sticks to the essentials, an emphasis on learning image generation, and the straightforward and safe incorporation of POCUS into clinical practice. EDE 2 is a 2-day course. Day 1 consists of completing online modules. The online modules are in cutting edge and interactive format. They allow participants to go through the material at their own pace, at a time of their own choosing, and as often as they like. The modules have been designed to make the learning experience informative, interesting and more importantly... enjoyable. Participants will be able to (1) Read text, (2) Click on audio clips, (3) Review live images, illustrations, and ultrasound images, (4) Watch live videos & ultrasound videos, (5) Use their cursor to identify structures, indicate screen orientation, and indicate whether a scan is positive or negative, (6) Answer pop quizzes or perform an activity with immediate feedback provided. The modules can be completed using a desktop computer, laptop, iPad, or other tablet. The live part of the course drops down to 1 day and mostly consists of scanning, with brief mini-lectures and/or demos to remind participants how to do the scan. The course manual is the book titled “Essentials of Point-of-Care Ultrasound”. Participants can choose the print or eBook version. Participants pay a reduced rate if they get the eBook on iBooks.
