Note to myself-In addition to the resource below, please review the following YouTube videos:
- All about TAPSE! (Echocardiography), 2:38, Jun 18, 2020, from The Echo Lady
- “Hello guys, in this video I’m talking about TAPSE! What it is? and how to measure it. This is a parameter we use to assess the right ventricular systolic function.”
- Point-of-Care Echo: Diastology, 13:42, Jan 7, 2021, from westernsono
- “Enjoy this 13-minute video that is a distilled-down “why” and “how” of diastolic assessment for point-of-care ultrasound.” This technique can help us distinguish cardiogenic pulmonary edema from non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema.
- “Take Home Points: LAP can be useful in difficult cases when trying to distinguish the primary etiology of B lines. LAP is derived from E/e’. Most helpful at the extremes: E/e’ < 8 = Normal LAP. E/e’ > 14 = Elevated LAP.
- Point of Care Echo: Stroke Volume Determination, 10:07, Dec 21, 2014, westernsono
- “Some Short Cuts: LVOT diameter is invariable. Change in VTI reflects change in SV. Peak velocity of VTI reflects changes in VTI. For quick assessment of shock: VTI(LVOT) in 18-20 range indicates normal range SV.”
- Pitfalls of VTI, 15:23, Apr 9, 2021, from westernsono
- “Given that important clinical recommendations are made based on the LVOT VTI and stroke volume determination it is vital that we understand the limitations associated with VTI acquisition. In this screencast Dr. Zain Burhani and Dr. Michael Sattin take us through 5 of the common pitfalls associated with LVOT VTI acquisition and interpretation.”
In this lecture from our Ultrasound Grand Rounds, Dr. Matthew Tabbut, MD and Dr. Ziad Shaman use a case to discuss the use of bedside ultrasound on patients with dyspnea.
