Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review 2020

Improve Clinical Outcomes

Get experienced guidance regarding critically ill patients, patients with an echocardiographic assessment prior to cardiac intervention, and patients for whom echocardiograms are a necessary and regular evaluation.

Organized in four sections — general principles, disorders, modalities, and settings — this CME program focuses on contemporary clinical standards, in addition to presenting new available modalities, emerging indications, and new approaches, all of which have a dramatic impact on echocardiographic use. Oakstone’s Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review will help you:

  • Understand clinical indications and quality assurance issues
  • Recognize clinical uses, advantages, potential complications, and limitations of new available modalities
  • Know the techniques needed to evaluate various diseases and disorders
  • Summarize the characteristic findings of diseases of the myocardium
  • Discuss the role of echocardiography in the intraoperative, critical care, and emergency department settings
