About this course

For practitioners who specialize in critical care, advanced critical care echocardiography (ACCE) is extremely useful in guiding the hemodynamic management of cardiopulmonary failure. The interactive learning experiences in this advanced-level course will help you perform and interpret a full advanced critical care echocardiography exam.

Our expert faculty members—all certified by the National Board of Echocardiography—will guide you through intensive training on image acquisition, image interpretation, and the cognitive basis of advanced critical care echocardiography. As you work to gain mastery of the full ACCE image set, you’ll review a broad spectrum of ACCE findings and focus on the practical applications of echocardiography.

Apply your new skills directly to your practice as you perform and interpret critical care echocardiography exams and care for patients with cardiopulmonary failure.
