iHeartscan – Live hands on workshop
Department of Anesthesiology and critical care, RRMCH in collaboration with University of Melbourne, Australia.
Date : 21st and 22nd of April 2018
Dr.H.Sahajananda welcomed the Dean and the gathering. He also introduced the guest faculty: Dr Shashikanth Manikappa, Director, Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, Southeast sector, Monash Health, Melbourne, Australia is the Course Director for iHeartscan in India. Other Faculty is Dr B G R Prasad, Director, Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, Rockingham Hospital, and Perth, Dr.Amarja Nagre Consultant Cardiac Anesthesiologist from Aurangabad, and Dr. Raj Mohan, Consultant Cardiac Anesthesiologist, Hyderabad with immense experience in Echocardiography.
Echocardiography has seen a meteoric rise in use in ultrasound since the mid-1990s in Australia and around the world. The use of ultrasound to guide procedures has been used extensively by Radiologists for years, but in recent times Anesthetists, Intensivists and Emergency Department Physicians have embraced the technology.
Limited echocardiography is not a totally new concept. There are publications looking at the use of limited echocardiography to assess volume or systolic function or as a screening tool to rule out severe aortic stenosis. Hemodynamic state assessment is a concept that has been championed through the Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma in Clinical Ultrasound (see www.heartweb.com.au) in Australia.
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.
Hemodynamic 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 Hemodynamic Echocardiography Assessment in Real Time, or iHeartScan™ for short. The study should take about 5 minutes once you gain more experience through practice.
Prof. Dr Sahajananda is the Course Coordinator.
Dates for the workshop are 21/4/2018 and 22/4/2018
IHeartScan Workshop Components
1) Pre-workshop preparation – includes eLearning tutorials and online TTE case studies.
2) Workshop workshop contains ten hours of hands-on-activity. Two hours is dedicated to each core learning area. Techniques will be demonstrated and participants will practice using the ultrasound systems. Participants will be dividing into small groups (maximum of five per group) and groups will rotate through each core learning area station.
3) Post-workshop exam – an online assessment with multiple choice questions
The core learning areas
1. Basic Trasthoracic Imaging
2. Hemodynamic State Assessment including Measurement of Cardiac Output
3. Basic Assessment of Valves using 2D and Colour Flow Doppler imaging
4. iHeartScan™ Examination
5. iHeartScan™ Reporting and Examples
It was attended by 20 delegates (1:5ratio of faculty to delegate) .At the end of the second day various pathological case scenarios were beamed on the screen using LCD projector. Delegates were asked to diagnose the condition and then they were debriefed. Participants were asked to fill in the feedback forms and hand over them to our volunteers.
Workshop was accredited to KMC and earned 4 points. Certificates were distributed to the attendees. Vote of thanks was delivered by Dr.Sahajananda.
