DMS-227 Echocardiography II [Spring Only]

This course is a continuance of Echocardiography, explaining the normal anatomy and physiology of the adult heart. A more in-depth analysis of the physiology/hemodynamics of the heart chambers and muscles are emphasized. Doppler flow patterns and sonographic evaluation of the abnormal heart will be stressed. New techniques as an adjunct tool to Echocardiography will be discussed. Students will perform a complete echo exam in lab in preparation for Vascular Practicum IV. Cardiac measurements of the chambers and muscles will be covered. Lecture [2.00], Laboratory [3.00].
