What you'll learn
- Perform a basic echocardiographic study and detect many common and important cardiac conditions.
This is a course for beginners of echocardiography who want to learn to perform a basic echocardiogram: Assess chamber size and function, assess and grade valve regurgitation and stenosis, and recognize many common and important cardiac conditions. If you're either a beginning cardiologist, or an established non-cardiologist who wants to learn an incredibly useful new skill, this course is for you.
Who this course is for:
- A beginning cardiologist who's starting out in echocardiography.
- A non cardiologist physician (e.g. Anesthesiologist, intensivist or ER physician) looking to gain a working knowledge of Echocardiography to help improve his patient care.
I'm a 31 year-old Egyptian cardiologist with over 7 years of experience. I'm also a computer programmer; web developer; and 2D/3D graphic designer, and I'm always striving to bring my two worlds together. I got the idea for VirtualEcho back when I was a resident cardiologist, struggling with echocardiography like everybody else, and decided I could do something to help make it easier for people to learn.
