Rajarajeshwari medical college and hospital celebrated Womens Day at their campus on March 8, 2016. Though it was a modest arrangement where the women power of RRMCH cut the cake and relished over a treat of snacks, it was an eventful one because RRMCH got an opportunity to extend gratitude and appreciation to these women, for their immense contribution to the progress of the institute.
Workshop was conducted on 13th and 14th of Feb 2016 at RajaRajeswari Medical College and Hospital Bangalore by the Department of Anaesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Medicine.
Workshop was attended by the delegates from Bangalore, Tamilnadu & Kerala.
The workshop was awarded 4 CME credit points by the Karnataka Medical Council.
TTE Workshops are designed for Anesthetists, Intensive Care, Emergency Department Physicians and Surgeons who wish to learn how to use Point of Care (POC) transthoracic and ultrasound guidance techniques. This course is designed to extend your experience and training in transthoracic echocardiography. iHeartScan™ is a registered name.
The goal is to strike a balance between “too little and too much” by analysing the important information needed for the critical care environment, in order to influence how to manage patients.
Haemodynamic state assessment is really the “bread and butter” of echo information. The information will be used in 90% of clinical situations to change the management. However, haemodynamic state is not enough to fully categorise the problem. Findings of haemodynamically important valve lesions such as severe aortic stenosis, will also lead us to change management.
iHeartscan is promoting the concept of limited transthoracic echocardiography to perform Haemodynamic Echocardiography Assessment in Real Time, or iHeartScan™ for short. The study should take about 5 minutes once you gain more experience through practice.
