Accompanying notes on the pathology models highlight the echocardiographic features displayed. The superb interactive functionality of the HeartWorks software is retained, including measurement capability.
Global left ventricular dysfunction
Highlighting the features of a failing left ventricle. Emphasizing a dilated cavity and impaired systolic function, the echocardiographic features of the model accurately reproduce a clinical finding.
Left ventricular anterior wall motion abnormality
An accurate representation of left ventricular anterior wall hypokinesia with compromised artery flow. Students can understand how to characterize regional wall motion abnormalities and acquire the relevant echocardiographic imaging planes.
Tachycardia, reduced cavity dimensions and increased ejection fraction, typical of hypovolemia, are carefully reproduced with characteristic HeartWorks attention to detail. The animation features accurate timing of the cardiac cycle with incorporation of shortening of the diastolic period.
