Extended Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (E-FAST) refers to the use of ultrasound to diagnose intraperitoneal hemorrhage, hemothorax, hemopericardium and pneumothorax in trauma. This has applications in trauma as well as medical patients with iatrogenic pneumothorax, parapneumonic effusion, ascites and other common conditions. The workshop will evaluate the utility of the E-FAST exam and it strengths and weaknesses. You will learn how to interpret images from the exam. You will also be able to recognize when E-FASt is appropriate in the setting of the patient evaluation and when further or alternative testing is appropriate.
