After completing this course, you will be able to

  • Analyze the configuration of the heart using the sequential segmental analysis.
  • Obtain nonstandard views to see more of the heart and great vessels than in conventional adult echo.
  • Use transthoracic echocardiography to detect and master the evaluation of simple shunts commonly seen in adults.
  • Distinguish between different transposition types and recognize repair techniques.
  • Identify the most common lesions seen in adults.
  • Calculate intracardiac pressures using defects.
  • Assess surgical repairs.

Course Handbook

Chapter 1

Getting the basics right

Rethink echo views in congenital heart disease. Here, you’ll learn how to differentiate chambers in a familiar adult echo orientation and master sequential segmental analysis.
4 Lessons (15m 39s)
Chapter 3

Atrioventricular septal defects

Here, you’ll learn how atrioventricular septal defects (AVSD) develop, how to differentiate between variations of AVSD, and what to look for in a patient after an AVSD repair.
4 Lessons (13m 16s)
Chapter 4

Left ventricular outflow lesions

Learn how to identify the level of left-sided outflow obstruction—from subaortic stenosis to around the bend in the aortic arch—and how to assess a repaired coarctation.
6 Lessons (15m 13s)
Chapter 5

Coronary artery disease

Explore the effects of coronary artery disease (CAD) on young people. Here, you’ll cover Kawasaki disease in toddlers and the differences between acquired CAD and congenital CAD.
4 Lessons (8m 22s)
Chapter 6

Ebstein anomaly

Ebstein anomaly isn't solely a valve problem. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to use echo to identify and assess patients with Ebstein anomaly and common lesions linked to it.
3 Lessons (10m 13s)
Chapter 7

Right ventricular outflow lesions

Master right ventricular outflow lesions. Here, you’ll learn how to recognize pulmonary stenosis, identify outflow lesions, and diagnose double-chambered right ventricles.
4 Lessons (13m 03s)
Chapter 8

Tetralogy of Fallot

This chapter dives deep into Tetralogy of Fallot. Learn all about its anatomical findings, repair techniques, and the common complications seen in adulthood.
3 Lessons (11m 32s)
