The SCA-On-CUE subject 7 emphasises the application of echocardiography in clinical situations. These include the clinical scenarios of persistent hypotension, acute pulmonary edema, high-speed deceleration injury, and sepsis (with a focus on endocarditis). In these tutorials, the student is presented with a clinical scenario and will identify how echocardiography can assist with differential diagnoses, with a focus on the common echocardiography findings for these scenarios. In addition, there are tutorials on pericardial tamponade and epiaortic aortic echocardiography. Click here for Course Brochure
The course instruction builds upon previous knowledge so it is best to complete the subjects in order. For the SCA-On-CUE certification, all subjects 5-8 need to be completed and satisfactorily passed.
This is an online course. Upon receipt of payment, the student will receive a “Getting Started” email with instructions on how to access the course materials.
Students have the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Program materials can be accessed through the iTeachU app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the program materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed even when offline (however internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials). Program materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.
