What you will learn

Course description: 

 Left atrial (LA) function is an important contributor to overall heart function.  Quantitative assessment of LA mechanical function has been limited. LA speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) may improve the understanding of atrial mechanical function. Components of left atrial mechanical function including reservoir, conduit and booster strain will be discussed. Case studies of LA function in health and disease will be analyzed. 

Virtual training is a facilitator-led, live online learning event that is delivered in a virtual environment. Participants can be geographically dispersed and also individually connected. Each learner uses their own computer or other compatible device. Virtual training is synchronous, meaning that participants are connected at the same time as the facilitator. Philips virtual training events typically range from 60-120 minutes in length with a maximum of 10 participants. This socially engaging, purposefully-designed training allows participants the same quality education of an instructor-led classroom without the need or expense of traveling.
