Abstract

We aimed to assess the role of a short duration multimedia workshop to improve the knowledge and skills in cardiac critical care ultrasonography. Thirty critical care physicians participated in the cardiac critical care ultrasonography workshop. Two weeks prior to hands-on training, a three-hour web-based didactic lecture was provided to learners. Hands-on training consisted of a two-hour examination on models without pathology and a 30-minute debriefing with instructors. Pre- and post-workshop knowledge tests were conducted online using 30 multiple choice questions. Pre- and post-workshop skill tests were video captured for evaluation by two reviewers to whom data were masked. Scores were based on 34 predetermined checklist items including learner performance, instrumentation and adequacy of ultrasound images. Learners' confidence levels on image acquisition were assessed using a ten-point Likert scale. A short duration multimedia, hands-on workshop improved intensivists' knowledge, skills and confidence levels on cardiac critical care ultrasonography image acquisition. Further studies are needed to assess the sustainability of observed improvements. This module may be a practical option for the acquisition and maintenance of cardiac critical care ultrasonography knowledge and skills.
