This addition of models of aortic valve incompetence secondary to endocarditis, a left sided pneumothorax, and enhancement to the presentation of hypovolemia further enhance the HeartWorks portfolio. The superb interactive functionality of the HeartWorks software is retained.
This model illustrates many of the echocardiographic findings associated with aortic incompetence. The illustrated lesion is due to endocarditis; vegetations, abscess formation and leaflet perforation are present along with the typical haemodynamic & Doppler ultrasound features of moderately severe aortic valve incompetence.
Lung ultrasound is increasingly used to detect the presence of pneumothorax. This model highlights the typical ultrasound features of a pneumothorax and allows the student to distinguish the appearance from that of normal lung ultrasound using 2D and m-mode ultrasound techniques.
Echocardiographic features consistent with a state of hypovolemia have been incorporated into this model. A state of tachycardia, hyperdynamic contraction and reduced stroke volume as well as the typical changes seen when examining the inferior vena cava are included.
