Emergency physician and ultrasound educator Dr. Tom Cook teaches how to accurately assess left ventricular wall motion in the presence of coronary artery disease, for improved patient management.

In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn how to extend your cardiac POCUS repertoire to identify regional abnormalities in contractile function of the left ventricular walls in patients with suspected acute coronary artery syndromes (ACS) or older infarcts. You’ll learn:

  • Indications for cardiac wall motion assessment
  • Cardiac views that will give you the best bang for your buck
  • The association of ECG findings to ultrasound findings
  • Common patterns of wall motion abnormalities and corresponding coronary artery distribution
  • How POCUS can enhance decision-making, reduce time to treatment, and improve outcomes

Ischemic heart disease is a common cause of LV wall motion abnormalities. Structural abnormalities can appear within seconds from the onset of myocardial ischemia, so identifying wall motion abnormalities in patients presenting to the ED with chest pain or suspected ACS could lead to earlier intervention.

Cardiac POCUS can be a valuable tool for the evaluation of cardiac function and structure in patients presenting to the ED with chest pain. Bedside echo can enhance clinical, lab and ECG findings by providing a rapid screening assessment of LV wall motion, expediting treatment, and saving myocardium.

Dr. Cook will give you the tools you need to quickly and reliably evaluate left ventricular wall segments to assess for hypo- or akinesis of one or more segments, which may be indicative of myocardial infarction.  He will teach how to use this information, along with ECG and lab values, to determine if your patient may benefit from early invasive intervention like angiography and stenting.

As always, Dr. Cook will review real cases with healthy and pathological images and video clips to help you develop the skills to generate and interpret ultrasound images on your patients.  Join this free webinar to gain practical knowledge you can use on your next day in the ER, hospital ward, or intensive care unit.

This webinar is a must for healthcare professionals seeking to improve their bedside cardiac ultrasound skills.
