    Muscle and Diaphragm Ultrasound: Training Course for the Acute and Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapist
    In this session, clinicians will learn how to appropriately use ultrasound to assess skeletal muscle and diaphragm muscle size and health for use in practice. Attendees will learn the interworking of ultrasound, review recent literature, and receive hands-on training with ultrasound. The speakers will explore physics, anatomy, landmarking, and ultrasound probe technique, as well as literature focusing on patients in the acute care setting. Experts in muscle ultrasound will lead receptive sessions on muscle and diaphragm. Attendees will break into small groups to learn and practice ultrasound techniques, directly guided by speakers. The majority of the session will be devoted to training and practice with an opportunity to perform reliability assessments with the experts. Presenters also will discuss and demonstrate muscle ultrasound analysis techniques.

    Acute, Anticipatory, and Urgent: Reeducating the Foundations of Postural Control in the Acute Care Setting
    Postural control, both anticipatory and reactive, is recognized as the critical foundation for functional movement. The acute care setting provides a unique opportunity to reestablish the trunk-limb patterns that form the foundation of anticipatory postural control. But this setting also challenges therapists' clinical decision making and skills due to severity of patient impairments, time constraints, and environmental barriers. This session will provide an overview of current evidence and clinical expertise to help therapists improve neurologic assessment and treatment of persons with mobility and functional limitations. The speakers will emphasize improving observational skills for analytical reasoning and hypothesis formation. Specific functional activities commonly performed in the acute care setting will be discussed: rolling, supine to/from sitting, sitting balance, sit to stand, and standing balance. Through the use of patient case videos, clinicians will expand their “tool box” of outcome measures and intervention strategies. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice skills and receive instructor and participant feedback. (Attendees will bring mat/large towel for lab practice.)

    Register today before the early bird ends on Nov. 13 and add an AACPT-hosted Pre-Con!
