"The American Society of Echocardiography's 'Focused Cardiac Ultrasound: Fundamental Principles of Acquisition and Interpretation' is an instructional video to be used for self-guided learning and professional lectures. The DVD features several interactive sections for flexible presentation, including an easy to navigate DVD menu, imaging examples of a wide variety of pathologies, case presentations with discussions, and an interpretation practice section designed to gauge levels of familiarly with the materials presented." -- American Society of Echocardiography website.

Enhance your patient care by deepening your understanding of heart failure and pulmonary edema. See exactly what's happening inside your patient and know exactly what it means for your care.
-anatomy and physiology: You'll review key structures and processes.
-disease causes: You'll see how heart failure and pulmonary edema develop.
-signs and symptoms: You'll link assessment findings to what's happening inside your patient.
-complications: You'll learn how complications develop, and you'll recognize their warning signs.
-diagnostic tests: You'll understand the significance of abnormal test results.
-priority interventions: When these disorders reach a crisis point, you'll know what to do first--and why.
-essential teaching topics: You'll know exactly what to teach your patients.
...and much, much more.
