This course focuses is on left ventricular systolic function. The course covers the basics of the cardiac cycle and left ventricular systolic function pathology. This is followed by a tutorial on how to measure left ventricular systolic function with echocardiography.
Personal Ultrasound (UltraScan)
The use of portable bedside ultrasound machines is dramatically changing patient assessment and management in the peri-operative, anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, surgery and internal medicine fields. It is being rapidly adopted as mainstream practice.
The aim of the Personal Ultrasound (UltraScan) Courses is to provide topic focused educational courses in specific learning areas. These short courses are cost and time effective with the average learning time of 1 month for a single course or 3 months for a package course.
Certificate of Completion will be sent via email upon all assessments and case studies are completed.
These courses provide flexible eLearning so students can study when and wherever convenient. Course materials can be accessed through the iTeachU app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the course materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed offline (however internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials). Course materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.

UltraScan – Assessment of Right Ventricular Systolic Function
Impaired right ventricular function is a less common cause of haemodynamic instability in the perioperative and critical care setting, than left ventricular dysfunction, but often produces more severe consequences. The course focuses is on right ventricular systolic function. The course covers right ventricular systolic function pathology. This is followed by a tutorial on how to measure right ventricular systolic function with echocardiography.
UltraScan – Assessment of Diastolic Function
This course focuses on left ventricular diastolic function. The course starts with the estimation of left atrial pressure, followed by a tutorial on how to measure left ventricular diastolic function with echocardiography.
