Goals

With this module you will be able to get the four basic views of cardiac ultrasound, and will be able to recognize poor/moderate/good function, recognise important right ventricular dilation and detect pericardial fluid. You will be able to recognize a normal aorta and exclude a AAA if good visualisation is possible. You will know the RUSH protocol to help you differentiate medical causes of shock.
