Oakstone Echocardiography A Comprehensive Review 2022

 Include: 38 videos + 1 pdf, size: 17.6 GB



Oakstone’s Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review provides an extensive, in-depth overview of all modalities of echocardiography used in the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected heart disease. The 38 expertly-informed presentations offer insight into the morphologic features and physiologic functioning of the myocardium, valves, pericardium, coronary arteries, and great vessels.
Directed by Scott D. Solomon, MD and Maja Cikes, MD, PhD, this online cardiology CME course includes 38 evidence-based lectures organized in four sections: general principles, disorders, modalities, and settings. Skilled echocardiographers reflect on the substantial technological advances that have brought innovative clinical applications and enhanced diagnostic accuracy.
Learning Objectives
At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

Name the components of a complete echocardiography exam
Describe the composition and safety of ultrasound enhancing (contrast) agents
List the required data for post TAVR echo assessment
Differentiate between two-dimensional and Doppler echo features in pulmonary hypertension
Recognize the limitations of handheld echocardiography
Explain the role of echocardiography in cardiotoxicity diagnosis
Outline the necessity of echocardiography in the assessment of complications in infective endocarditis
Summarize the application of intraoperative echocardiography to clinical decision making
Differentiate between the use of echocardiography in hypertrophic hearts and in dilated hearts
List the conditions that can be assessed with stress echocardiography
Identify the role of echocardiography in cardiotoxicity diagnosis and risk prediction
State the role of echocardiography regarding the normal range of “dysfunction” in prosthetic valve use
Distinguish between the uses for punch biopsy, shave biopsy, and incisional/excisional biopsy for skin lesions
Outline the diagnostic skills regarding in-office blood pressure measurement and the implementation of proper blood pressure measurement techniques
List the signs and symptoms of mosquito-borne diseases
List topical and systemic treatments for various types of dermatitis
