Work with expert level faculty to review the cognitive base of advanced critical care echocardiography (ACCE) relevant to the upcoming National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) Examination of Special Competence in Critical Care Echocardiography (CCEeXAM), scheduled for January 15, 2019. This exam review course is specifically designed for learners who are scheduled to take the examination and will focus on refining the mastery of image interpretation, clinical applications, and the knowledge base of ACCE.

Review key components of ACCE including:

  • M mode, 2D, and Doppler physics
  • Measurement of stroke volume/cardiac output (SV/CO)
  • Assessment of left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) function
  • Measurement of filling pressures and diastolic function
  • Evaluation of valve function
  • Determination of preload sensitivity
  • Measurement of intracardiac pressures and flows
  • Evaluation of heart-lung interactions
  • Evaluation of pericardial disease
  • Evaluation of catheters and devices
  • Relevant components whole body ultrasonography

In addition to didactic lectures, the course will include an image-based review of complex cases and challenge the learner with hundreds of questions using sophisticated real-time ARS technology. The goal of this course is to best prepare the learner for the upcoming challenge of the NBE critical care echocardiography examination.

Prerequisites

This course is designed for learners who are well-advanced into their study of ACCE. It is not recommended for the learner who does not have substantial knowledge of the field, as a strong background in ACCE level image acquisition, image interpretation, and knowledge base is essential for the learner to derive benefit from the course. Hands-on training in image acquisition was offered in June. It is recommended that those who attended the June course also attend this board review course for the most comprehensive review.

Target Audience

This course is designed for the serious candidate for the NBE CCEeXAM.
