Supporting Philips’ ICU Echo Course in Kuwait

On May 12th-14th 2013, Philips ran an effective workshop specifically designed for Emergency and ICU doctors for the Kuwait region.

During this course fourteen participants  attended a  one day lecture and were given hands-on  training  using the HeartWorks  Dual TEE/TTE simulator.  Consolidating what had been learnt, the training continued directly into the ICU department on a real patient to ensure a smooth transferrence of skills into a real clinical setting.

Positive feedback

Feedback from the course confirmed that the utilization of the HeartWorks simulator was highly appreciated giving delegates a comprehensive  and practical understanding of  how to acquire quality ultrasound images and interpret them  correctly in relation to cardiac anatomy.  Participants had the opportunity to try the transthoracic and the transesophageal application of the simulator and the feedback was the same for every one – “This is a great learning tool!”
