Package 3: Cardiac Hemodynamics

The Cardiac Hemodynamics package was designed to provide a comprehensive foundation for acquiring a complete cardiac hemodynamic profile during the echocardiographic exam.

Components include:

  • Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse
  • Essentials of Echocardiography, 4th edition
  • Adult Echo Case Study

Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse
The Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse is a seven-module series by Mark Harry, RDCS, RVT, REEGT designed to provide the foundation for acquiring a cardiac hemodynamic profile during the echocardiographic exam. The series begins with a module on Cardiac Pressures, followed by modules covering Diastolic Filling, Aortic Stenosis, Aortic Regurgitation, Subaortic Stenosis, Mitral Stenosis, and Mitral Regurgitation. Etiology and diagnostic criteria for each type of pathology is discussed with technical and system optimization tips integrated throughout the series. Mark emphasizes the importance of analyzing the patient’s clinical presentation with the hemodynamic data generated in order to deliver an accurate cardiac hemodynamic profile. A cardiac hemodynamic worksheet is provided to aid in calculating right-sided, left-sided and pulmonary pressures. Case presentations demonstrate the real-life application of the quantification techniques taught throughout the series.

Cardiac Hemodynamics Viewing Time (with interactive questions): 5 hours 
Cardiac Hemodynamics Review (optional): 4.0 hours

Essentials of Echocardiography, 4th edition
Now in full color, the 4th edition of Essentials of Echocardiography features the addition of case based illustrative protocols as part of each chapter, a new image based pathology chapter, and all the great illustrative information from the 3rd edition. This text includes a basic overview of instrumentation, cardiac anatomy, M-mode, 2D, and Doppler principles. In addition, there are chapters on how to estimate: cardiac pressures, aortic stenosis severity, aortic regurgitation severity, mitral stenosis severity, mitral regurgitation severity and LV diastolic filling.

Adult Echo Case Study CD
This CD ROM contains 50 case studies designed to help prepare candidates for the video portion of the adult echocardiography certification exam. The author, Terry Reynolds of the Arizona Heart Institute and faculty member of Pegasus Lectures, has developed multiple-choice questions to complement each case study, creating an in-depth self-assessment program. There are more than 200 questions included. This collection of case studies is ideal to expand your library of clinical pathology as well as an excellent tool for assessing the clinical knowledge of students, sonographers, or potential employees. This CD is not MAC compatible.

Cardiac eCourse: 9.25 SDMS CME credits
