The EDE 2 Course

The Emergency Department Echo ("EDE") 2 Course is an advanced point-of-care ultrasound course that will take the seasoned practitioner to the next level. EDE 2 has been created by a team of over a dozen editors, authors, and translators from across the country. Although it brings you new indications, EDE 2 retains the principles of the original EDE course: sticking to the essentials, an emphasis on learning image generation, and the straightforward and safe incorporation of EDE into clinical practice.
