This one day course aims to introduce candidates to level 1 critical care TTE. As a fully FICE (Focused Intensive Care Echocardiography) approved course attendance will contribute towards FICE accreditation. The faculty are all experienced FICE mentors and the focus of the day is very much hands-on practise in small groups using live models, state of the art simulators and real case studies.
