Assessment of Right Ventricular Systolic Function
Impaired right ventricular function is a less common cause of haemodynamic instability in the perioperative and critical care setting than left ventricular dysfunction, but often produces more severe consequences. The focus of this course is on right ventricular systolic function. This course starts with tutorials covering the right ventricular systolic function pathology, then followed by a tutorial on how to measure right ventricular systolic function with echocardiography. After the tutorials have been completed, read the tutorial on how to report case studies and then complete the 5 case studies, which illustrate the different right ventricular systolic function abnormalities.
