Mitral Regurgitation
is intended to help you diagnose, stage, and treat mitral regurgitation, the most common cardiac disease you are likely to see in daily practice.  I also discuss common cardiac medications and anesthesia considerations for your cardiac patients. During 1 1/2 hours of instruction using over 100 video clips and 40 stills and animations I help you make sense of the information you gather in a cardiac exam for mitral regurgitation.
The following is an outline of topics that are covered:
COLORFLOW OF JET
RIGHT LONG CF OF CENTRAL JET
RIGHT LONG CF OF ECCENTRIC JET
LEFT APICAL CF OF CENTRAL JET
CW ENVELOPE STRENGTH
PRESSURE GRADIENT OF CW
RUPTURE OF CHORDAE TENDINAE
