Comparaison de deux méthodes d’apprentissage de l’échocardiographie visuelle, échographe classique et échographe de poche : étude prospective, bicentrique, randomisée

Abstract : Focused cardiac ultrasound (FOCUS) has proven its usefullness in emergency medecine. Pocket-sized ultrasound devices (PUD) have demonstrated their capacity to realise this examination. However, there is no scientific evidence telling wether FOCUS can be teached directly on PUD or not. Therefor, our study aims to compare de quality of a FOCUS examination realized on a PUD, wether it has been taught on a PUD or on a standard ultrasound device. We thaught FOCUS to medical students without any echographic experience, divided into two groups (« standard » group and « pocket-sized » group). We then evaluated them, based on a predetermined quality scale, pondered on 100, timed the duration of the examination and let them answer a subjective questionnary about their learning difficulties and self-confidence in acquiring the images. From january to july 2020, ninety-four medical students were taught FOCUS examination, in the University Hospitals of Nice and Nîmes, France, randomized into two groups (53 being tauhgt on standard ultrasound device, 41 on a PUD). The pondered quality scales were 60,40 ± 15,13 in the standard group, versus 64,58 ± 15,83 in the PUD group (p = 0,23). There was no significant statistical difference in the time of acquisition nor in the responses to the subjective evaluation questionnary.
In conclusion, our results showed that there is no significant statistical difference in the global quality of a Focused cardiac ultrasound examination, realized on a pocket-sized ultrasound device, wether it has been taught on a pocket-sized ultrasound device or a standard ultrasound device.
