Work with expert-level faculty to review the cognitive base of advanced critical care echocardiography (ACCE) that is relevant to the upcoming National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) Examination of Special Competence in Critical Care Echocardiography (CCEeXAM). The board review course is specifically designed for learners who are scheduled to take the examination and will focus on refining 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 newly created digital learning modules that include 150 interactive questions, the course will also have six live complex, case-based discussions, which will challenge the learner with more than 50 polling questions, rationales, and ample time to ask faculty and experts who have passed the exam crucial questions. The goal of this course is to best prepare the learner for the upcoming challenge of the NBE CCEeXAM.

All of the live complex, case-based discussions will be recorded, so if you are unable to attend any of them, the recordings will be made available in our learning management system for all registered learners.


This course is designed for learners who are well-advanced into their study of ACCE and who are sitting for the NBE ACCE certification exam. The December board review would be productively combined with the June course for the serious candidate of the NBE CCEeXAM.

Target Audience

The December board review is designed for the serious candidate of the NBE CCEeXAM.
