Common defects + introduction to complex defects
Become competent in Adult Congenital Heart Disease
The Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Bachelor Course is an online echocardiography video teaching program. The course covers all major congenital heart defects such as ventricular and atrial septal defects (ASD+VSD), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), congenital valve disease, LVOT / RVOT obstruction, tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), Coarctation (CoA) and more. The course also includes the basics of complex congenital abnormalities (i.e., surgical procedures, Transposition of the great arteries (TGA), single ventricles, and abnormal pulmonary venous connections (APVC). Watch hundreds of examples, patient demonstrations and learn ACHD from top experts in the field.

Here we cover the fundamentals, What can you expect?
How to Image Patients with ACHD
Here we teach you how to use a systemic approach when you image your patients.
Specific considerations in ACHD patients
Imaging patients with ACHD is different, here are some things you need to know.
Aortic dilatation, how to measure the Ao, genetic syndromes and connective tissue disorders.

What our customers say
I'm constantly referring to the ACHD classes. There isn't any material on the web on ACHD like your course. The things I've learnt have opened my eyes and heart to ACHD which before was my strong achilles heel. A must for every Echo lover.
