Echo Courses Workshop

 

A practical workshop that provides the participants with firsthand knowledge of the colour-Doppler-echocardiography for interventional cardiac procedures in congenital heart disease. The workshop is being conducted by highly trained industry professionals at two levels: basic and advanced.

Basic Echo Course (TTE) 

Hands-on in a normal heart & simple lesions.

Objective: The main aim of the hands-on beginners echocardiography course is to learn to perform a thorough echocardiography study of the normal heart.

Advanced Echo Course (TTE) 

Hands-on in complex lesions and ASD & VSD & PDA & PS prior to intervention.

Objective: The main aim of the hands-on advanced echocardiography course is to understand the specific needs of the interventional cardiologist as well as to perform a thorough intervention-focused transthoracic colour-Doppler-echocardiography. Therefore, the course addresses both the echocardiographer and interventionalist. The three different congenital abnormalities: PDA, ASD II, (peri membranous and muscular) VSD and coarctation will be echoed hands-on in small groups. Children with these cardiac defects and their parents are volunteering to make this unique hands-on training possible.
