SONO 2024 - Vascular 3

Credit hours: 4 (Lecture: 4, Lab 0 - Chattanooga State)

Prerequisites: SONO 2014 - Vascular 2  

Industry Certifications American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography’s Vascular Technology (VT) certification examination (though the learner is not eligible until completing a minimum of a 12-month accredited sonography program).

Course Description:
The third of a multi-course sequence that will assess anatomy, physiology, and related hemodynamics of the vascular system from the sonographic imaging perspective. Pathology, clinical signs and symptoms, applicable laboratory values, pathophysiology, and differential diagnosis will be presented.

Student Learning Outcomes:
Students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of normal and abnormal specified anatomy, physiology, pathology, and hemodynamics.
  2. Evaluate the principals of fluid dynamics in the vascular system with respect to normal and abnormal flow. 
  3. Utilize the varying graphic recording devices used in non-invasive direct and indirect vascular testing.
  4. Analyze patient history, risk factors, and signs and symptoms of vascular disease.
  5. Determine appropriate uses of vascular testing specific to the vasculature being studied.
  6. Evaluate data collected from vascular examinations to create a preliminary interpretation report.
  7. Integrate physical principals of ultrasound specific to vascular sonography.
  8. Familiarize oneself with various medical and surgical intervention techniques from the perspective of patient vascular assessment, in both pre- and post-procedure time frames.
