ASEUniversity III: Case-Based Learning
Welcome to ASEUniversity III: Case-Based Learning.
This course contains two volumes available for purchase, each taking you through a variety of topics in a case-based format. Each volume has been approved by ABIM for credit towards part II (self-assessment of medical knowledge) MOC requirements. Topics covered include new technology, artifacts, valvular heart disease, ventricular size and function, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies, diastolic function, pericardial disease, stress echocardiography, cardiac masses, aortic regurgitation, endocarditis, mitral stenosis, Doppler, congenital heart disease, closure devices/device placement, image optimization, CRT, and more!
Focus on Congenital Heart Disease
Welcome to Clinical Cases in Echocardiography: Focus on Congenital Heart Disease. Approved by both ABIM and ABP towards part II MOC requirements, this activity will provide cases reviewing the role of echocardiography in diagnosis and follow-up of a wide variety of different congenital heart diseases and defects, including, but not limited to: valve defects, atrial and ventricular septal defects, patent foramen ovale, patent ductus arteriosus, coarctation of the aorta, Ebstein's anomaly, pulmonary artery stenosis, Tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries, etc. Cases will include symptomatic and asymptomatic diagnosis and treatment, as well as adult patients with repaired or palliated CHD.
These case-based, educational tools are for anesthesiologists, cardiologists, fellows, surgeons, and other interested individuals currently performing and/or interpreting transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for intraoperative procedures. Throughout these activities, surgical cases have been used to showcase the value of TEE in the perioperative setting. Topics include, but are not limited to: LV function, RV function, diseases of the aorta, aortic valve and root, LVOT (Including HCM), mitral valve stenosis, mitral valve regurgitation, tricuspid valve, atrial septum, and other intraoperative uses outside of monitoring and emergency diagnosis.
Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why
Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why is a guideline-based product focused on the methods used to obtain measurements, including explanations describing why such methods are appropriate. This educational tool comprises a combination of didactic lectures and clinical questions. It can be used as a review for experienced sonographers, as well as a training tool for new or early-career sonographers and others who are interested in the practice of cardiovascular ultrasound. Topics include imaging measurements (2D vs. M-mode, LV linear dimensions, basal cardiac measurements, LV volume, LA volume, inferior vena cava, and right ventricle) as well as velocity measurements (spectral Doppler, mitral inflow, mitral annulus, pulmonary vein, mitral stenosis, tricuspid regurgitation, aortic valve, and HOCM).
Case-Based Learning: Focus on Patient Safety is an enitrely online product consisting of 18 patient case studies and 28 related questions. This activity inlcudes cases reviewing the role of echocardiography in stress echocardiography, minimizing the risk of ultrasound, describing the process and appropriateness of TEE, advantages and complications of interventional echocardiography and benefits obtained through the use of contrast agents.
