Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography Board Review Exam Course is organized by American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and will be held from Dec 11 - 12, 2020 at CHEST Innovation, Simulation, and Training Center, Glenview, Illinois, United States of America. Target Audience: The December board review is designed for the serious candidate of the NBE CCEeXAM. Accreditation: Physician Credit: CHEST designates this live activity for a maximum of 16.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. ABIM MOC Statement: Successful completion of this CME activity enables the participant to earn up to 16.0 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC points. Nursing Credit: Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number 16433, for 16.0 contact hours. Course Description: Work with expert level faculty to review the cognitive base of advanced critical care echocardiography (ACCE) that is relevant to the upcoming National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) Examination of Special Competence in Critical Care Echocardiography (CCEeXAM). The board review course is specifically designed for learners who are scheduled to take the examination and will focus on refining mastery of image interpretation, clinical applications, and the knowledge base of ACCE. Review key components of ACCE including: • M mode, 2D, and Doppler physics • Measurement of stroke volume/cardiac output (SV/CO) • Assessment of left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) function • Measurement of filling pressures and diastolic function • Evaluation of valve function • Determination of preload sensitivity • Measurement of intracardiac pressures and flows • Evaluation of heart-lung interactions • Evaluation of pericardial disease • Evaluation of catheters and devices • Relevant components - whole body ultrasonography In addition to didactic lectures, the course will include an image-based review of complex cases and challenge the learner with hundreds of questions using sophisticated real-time ARS technology. The goal of this course is to best prepare the learner for the upcoming challenge of the NBE CCEeXAM. Learning Objectives: After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to: • Perform the full image set of ACCE transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) examination. • Interpret the full ACCE TTE examination and integrate the findings into clinical context. • Perform the measurement of stroke volume, indices of preload sensitivity, left-sided filling pressures, intracardiac pressures, right- and left-sided heart function, and valvular function. Tuition: Discount for nonphysicians, advanced practice providers, and physicians-in-training - $700.
Dec 03 - 05, 2020 | MOC : 20.25 | CME : 20.25 | USD $2,295.00 | Glenview, Illinois
Ultrasonography: Essentials in Critical Care is organized by American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and will be held from Dec 03 - 05, 2020 at CHEST Innovation, Simulation, and Training Center, Glenview, Illinois, United States of America. Target Audience: Intensivists, critical care, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, pulmonary and critical care fellows, and advanced practice providers are encouraged to attend. Accreditation: CME credits and MOC points: 20.25 Course Description: Study essential elements of critical care ultrasonography to advance your practice and your patient care. This intensive 3-day, hands-on learning experience will focus on three key elements: • Image acquisition will be practiced on human models using high-quality ultrasound machines and supervised by experienced faculty. Training sessions give you practical, hands-on training with a 1:3 teacher-to-learner ratio, so you benefit from personal instruction. • Image interpretation occurring during group sessions under the supervision of experienced faculty members offers relevant practice. Numerous ultrasound images demonstrating normal and pathologic findings will give you a comprehensive learning opportunity. As you improve your skills, you will be further challenged with unknowns and case-based image sets. • Your knowledge base will be enhanced through pre-course study materials and lectures that focus on important aspects of critical care ultrasonography. Discussions will have immediate application within your practice. Learning Objectives: After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to: • Discuss the knowledge base required to perform point of care ultrasonography. • Incorporate the interpretation skills required for taking critical care ultrasonography into frontline management of the ICU. • Identify appropriate uses of ultrasonography in pulmonary and critical care practice. • Demonstrate appropriate image acquisition techniques required for critical care ultrasonography. • Interpret image-based clinical cases. Tuition: Discount for nonphysicians, advanced practice providers, and physicians-in-training - $700.
