This module teaches you how to how to set up and perform echocardiography assessment of endocarditis and pericarditis. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability that cover different situations you might encounter in the clinical environment. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/imaging/sonography/echocardiography/echocardiography-assessment-of-endocarditis-and-pericarditis/

You’ll learn  

  • to practice, perfect, and test your skills in setting up and performing an echocardiography assessment of the endocardium and pericardium
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy and physiology of the heart and major vessels, with our 3D model and illustrations
  • signs and symptoms of endocarditis and pericarditis
  • to differentiate on images abnormal sonographic appearances of the heart, including subacute bacterial endocarditis, common cardiac tumors, and thrombus
  • to obtain measurements of various structures within the heart
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information).

Step 4 - Obtain the apical two-chamber view
Step 4.1 - Scan the left ventricle to obtain the volume
Step 5 - Obtain the subcostal view
Step 5.1 - Obtain the four-chamber view, in 2D
Step 5.2 - Obtain the inferior vena cava and hepatic veins view, in 2D
Step 5.3 - Scan the inferior vena cava and hepatic veins, using color
  • Describe and demonstrate the sonographic appearance of subacute bacterial endocarditis, common cardiac tumors, and thrombus.
  • Describe and demonstrate the hemodynamics and pathophysiology associated with pericardial diseases, including tamponade.
  • Define and use related medical terminology.

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
