Focused Cardiac Ultrasound

Series Summary

Will Pull from updated CME Activity Application

Module Goal

To provide basic instruction for performing a focused cardiac ultrasound exam using the parasternal long axis (PLAX), parasternal short axis (PSAX), apical 4 chamber (A4C), subcostal 4-Chamber (S4C) and inferior vena cava (SC IVC) views

Target Audience

Module Learning Objectives
  1. List the indications for performing a focused cardiac ultrasound examination
  2. Describe the optimal machine settings, probe selection, probe orientation and placement for obtaining the focused cardiac exam.
  3. Identify the structures viewed in the PLAX, PSAX, A4C, S4C, and SC IVC
  4. Recognize normal anatomy and common pathology (pericardial effusion, LV dysfunction, RV dysfunction, severe valvular abnormalities)
  5. Discuss the limitations and pitfalls of the focused cardiac ultrasound examination
