Ultrasound Imaging in Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy: Evidence to Translation

This premium lecture aims to provide an overview of the basic science principles of ultrasound including modes, transducers, artefacts, and optimisation of imaging.

  • Discuss supporting evidence for ultrasound imaging of the lung, sternum, diaphragm and skeletal muscle in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy
  • Provide a systematic approach to ultrasound imaging of the lung and sternum for diagnosis and evaluation of intervention, including identification of structural features and key patterns of lung pathology and sternal complications, and documentation of findings
  • Present the application and impact of lung and sternal ultrasound on physiotherapy decision making and management through clinical case studies
  • Involve participants with interactive activities to consolidate and reinforce key principles of Ultrasound imaging
  • Describe education and training programs to support translation of skill acquisition into clinical practice

Please note: This is a live webinar. Login instructions including link details will be sent to registrants on the day of the event. If login instructions are not received by midday on the day of the lecture contact us on nsw.pd@australian.physio

Presenters

Louise Hansell


Louise Hansell is a physiotherapist at Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, and is completing a PhD through the University of Sydney, focusing on lung ultrasound for physiotherapists. Louise has a particular interest in respiratory physiotherapy in the intensive care and postoperative settings and the COVID population.

Doa El-Ansary


Associate Professor Doa El-Ansary is the Director of Physiotherapy at Swinburne University of Technology, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Surgery in the Medicine School at the University of Melbourne and the clinical Research Institute at Westmead Private Hospital in Sydney. She is an invited member of the European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgeons (EACTS) scientific committee and the inaugural founding member of the Nursing and Allied Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS). Doa has worked in private practice, public and private hospitals settings in addition to holding teaching posts at the University of Melbourne, Australian Institute of Sport; University of Sydney and the University of Canberra. Her PhD research established Physiotherapy guidelines for the diagnosis and management of sternal instability following cardiac surgery. Doa is a member of the founding committee that developed “Heart Online”, a web-based toolkit for cardiovascular health and rehabilitation. Doa pioneered Ultrasound imaging for diagnosis of sternal non-union and instability following cardiac surgery. Doa has over 150 publications that represent collaboration within Physiotherapy, Nursing and Medicine in cardiac surgery, ultrasound imaging and cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy. Doa has also led the collaboration of certified ultrasound multimodal education courses targeting lung pathology, muscle and bone for nurses and physiotherapists facilitating translation of Ultrasound as a bedside assessment tool for better patient outcomes. Her research interests include: cardiac surgery; adaptations to exercise in bone and muscle; ultrasound imaging; advances in sternal closure; postoperative recovery; differential diagnosis and management of chest wall pain.
