The Society of Invasive Cardiac Professionals recommends periodic updates on current and new cath lab techniques and equipment.

Date: Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 

Location: DoubleTree by Hilton Anaheim – Orange County, 100 The City Drive South, Orange, CA 92868

Time: 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m.

  • Non-UC Irvine Health employees: $85
  • Students/trainees: $65

Day-of registration is $100. 

Register online 

Learning objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

  • Obtain a basic understanding of hemodynamics in the cardiac cath lab and identify pressure measurement, artifacts and the application of pressure waveforms for the diagnosis of valvular abnormalities.
  • Review the indications and contraindications for cardiac catheterization, identify complications and their management and understand the use of transfemoral and transradial catheterization techniques.
  • Identify new methods for interventional cardiology procedures, the use of hemodynamic support devices, coronary stents, fractional flow reserve (FFR), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT).

2016 Echo Essentials »

2016 Essentials in Echocardiography Conference

Event Description:

The UC Irvine Health 2016 Essentials in Echocardiography Conference is designed to raise awareness within the medical community of recent advances in adult echocardiography, its versatile application and utility in diagnosis and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.

The objective is to equip cardiologists, cardiology fellows, intensivists, cardiac anesthesiologists, emergency room physicians, internal medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, sonographers and other health care providers interested in cardiac ultrasound with the latest recommendations and guidelines from professional societies, including the American Society of Echocardiography and the American College of Cardiology, and provide continuing medical education in the dynamic field of echocardiography.

Date: Sunday, Oct. 30, 2016 Location: UC Irvine Medical Center, 101 The City Drive South, Building 53, Auditorium, Orange, CA 92868 Time: 7:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the activity, the participant should be able to:

  • Learn the highlights from the most recent guidelines including updates on diastology, the evaluation of a cardiac source of embolism, the echocardiographic assessment of atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale, recommendations on the use of echocardiography in adult hypertensions, multimodality imaging of diseases of the thoracic aorta in adults and valvular heart disease. The participant should be able to know the content of the major changes in the guidelines named above and apply the knowledge toward performing and the interpretation of echocardiography.
  • Review techniques and protocols of bedside ultrasound. The participant should be able to identify the setting in which bedside ultrasound is indicated and follow, establish, perform and interpret bedside ultrasound appropriately and efficiently.
  • Learn and be familiar with novel echocardiographic methods for determining cardiac function, risk stratification and patient management. The participant should be able to understand the concepts on which the new modalities are based, the benefits and indication of the echo imaging utilizing these tools and translate/incorporate them into his or her practice in order to enhance diagnostic utility of comprehensive echocardiography and improve patient care.
  • Recognize common adult congenital heart disease conditions seen in standard echocardiography and other noninvasive imaging modalities for correlation, apply additional imaging steps to confirm/delineate the differential diagnoses and help contribute to the care plan of patients with congenital heart disease.
