Focused Cardiac Ultrasound Transthoracic Echocardiography Advanced

In this course, participants will advance their point of care transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) skills to include quantification of valvular and ventricular function and estimation of pulmonary hypertension.

On completion of this course, graduates will be able to:

  • Learn to interpret real and simulated TTE images and obtain simulated TTE images using:
  • Quantification and classification of valvular dysfunction (colour, pressure gradient, valve area)
  • Quantification and classification of right and left ventricular dysfunction (eg. TAPSE, Simpson's ejection fraction)
  • Estimation of pulmonary artery systolic pressure
