Echocardiography Cardiac Doppler Ultrasound Course is organized by Advanced Health Education Center (AHEC) and will be held from Jul 09 - 13, 2018 at Advanced Health Education Center, Houston, Texas, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Physicians who want to learn basic echocardiography procedure skills and entry-level interpretation, and sonographers or other health professionals learning to perform adult echocardiography procedures. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 40 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Echocardiography has come a long way from its humble beginnings. The addition of M-Mode, two-dimensional real-time imaging, Doppler, color flow, and now three and four-dimensional imaging have all changed the way echocardiography is practiced. Diastolic assessment and changes in nomenclature have even changed the language of Echo. This course covers echo from M-mode to 3-D. After completion, you will be confident in choosing the proper tools to assess common pathological conditions such as valvular abnormalities, systolic, and diastolic function.
Conference Objectives are :
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
• Explain normal cardiovascular anatomy and physiology and relate cardiovascular functions to disease.
• Discuss cardiac mechanical and electrical physiology and relate this information from the echocardiogram to the basic electrocardiogram.
• Operate several ultrasound units for the production of 2-D, M-Mode and Doppler echocardiograms
• Perform an echocardiogram using the protocol defined by the American Society of Echocardiography, i.e. parasternal long and short, apical 2, 4, 5, and long, and subcostal long and short axis.
• Quantitatively analyze the results of 2-D and M-Mode echocardiogram.
Analyse the results of an echocardiogram for normal versus abnormal findings.
Analyse echocardiograms for common cardiac pathologies.
• Identify and resolve basic technique and equipment problems that interfere with the quality of studies.
• Define the clinical responsibilities of an echocardiographer who is confronted with significant clinical findings.
• Conduct a basic patient history and assessment that relates to the interpretation of echocardiographic findings.
• Operate several cardiac ultrasound instruments and apply various types of cardiac Doppler; pulse wave, continuous wave, and color flow mapping. *Describe the normal cardiovascular blood flow through the heart and the great vessels as defined by Doppler velocity measurements and profiles. Quantify Doppler findings in echocardiography.
• Analyse common cardiac Doppler findings for common cardiac pathologies.
• Identify the diseases or cardiac pathologies that require definition by Doppler examination.
