What you'll learn

The appearance of cardiac anatomy and abnormalities are sometimes confusing. It is difficult to obtain a 3D imagination for a 2D ECG. The best way to learn is to obtain a 2D image and relate it to a 3D configuration.ECG is a valuable skill set in multiple clinical scenarios like trauma, cardiac arrest etc for medical professionals. The use of electrocardiography has been increasing substantially day by day. All health care setups are bound to have ECG in their diagnostic areas and it has become important for health care professionals to gain knowledge on ECG and its more »»

There are different views of ECG which include long axis parasternal, short-axis parasternal, posterior view, anterior view etc. Skills on different techniques like probe selection, orientation, scanning methods all play an important role in obtaining a better image and analysis. Knowledge on all ECG views will help the medical professional to gain a better grip on which view can better visualize which structure. Familiarity with common ECG views provides a foundation to make better clinical decisions and as well better treatment at the right time.

Therefore this course follows the course of Basic Echocardiography Techniques and teaches you how to obtain the views required to examine all the anatomy of the heart. It also focuses on appropriate patient position, breathing techniques tom better visualize the image, how to measure the dimensions of the structures etc.Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to obtain basic echocardiography views of the heart.
