2016-02-02 17:23:23 | BioPortfolio


Emergency ultrasound examinations are increasingly important diagnostic tools in emergency and critical care medicine. This study wants to analyze different types of education for undergraduate students. Any method of medical training will be proved theoretical and in clinical practice.


This prospective educational study wants to analyze different methods of education for undergraduate medical students.

Method A: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 2 hours with lectures in basics of emergency ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a bedside-teaching on intensive care unit for 4 hours.

Method B: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 3 hours and included lectures in echocardiography, lung ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a bedside-teaching on intensive care unit for 3 hours.

Method C: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 3 hours and included lectures in echocardiography, lung ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a hands-on-training in healthy volunteers for 3 hours. The acquired knowledge and practical skills will be analyzed by a multiple-choice exam (5 MC-questions, 5 video sequences) and a practical exam (five tasks).

Any method of training will be proved at the end theoretical and in clinical practice.
