About the Workshop
Designed to FAST TRACK Trainee Echocardiographers during the first 3 months of training and take the pressure off Senior Echocardiographers. The enormous practical training component of this unique program will ensure skills are remembered and pathology understood. Highly recommended for Cardiology Fellows (adult & paediatric) and Advanced Cardiac Trainees – start your echo placement with confidence in 2019.
Learn valuable skills in this comprehensive 4 DAY workshop developed by Ruth Ramm.
Workshops are suitable for Cardiac Technicians, Trainee Echocardiographers, Cardiac Fellows (Adult & Paediatric) and Medical Professionals wanting a great start to their Echocardiography Training.
- Echo windows & Echo views
- Cardiac anatomy
- Valvular Heart Disease
- Ventricular Diastolic and Systolic function
- Doppler Haemodynamics (Bernoulli Eq, Flow Eq & Continuity Eq)
- Normal Echo protocol and Machine Controls
- Case Studies – Cardiac Tamponade, Acute PE, Ventricular dysfunction and many more…
HANDS-ON scanning each day of the course – 30 university students and senior community members will be scanned during this program and you will develop the tricks of the trade in finding and optimising Echo images.
