The study population includes 399 consecutive patients who presented to the echo lab, 254 African-American and 145 Caucasian, with data collected from standard 12 lead ECG: QRS duration (QRS), QTc Interval (QTc) and from M-mode Echo left ventricular systolic function (LVEF), interventricular septal thickness (IVS), posterior left ventricular wall thickness (PLVW), left ventricular end diastolic dimension (LVED), left ventricular end systolic dimension (LVES).
These overweight or obese patients had significantly higher rates of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes as well as a greater mean left ventricular end diastolic diameter than the normal-weight or underweight CHF patients.
Among the topics that Marcus and Harry will discuss are LV Diastolic Filling (an integrative assessment of left atrial pressure and left ventricular end diastolic pressure; Proximal Isovelocity Surface Area (how to apply the continuity principle for calculation of orifice areas using the PISA method); Aortic Stenosis, Aortic Regurgitation, Mitral Stenosis and Mitral Regurgitation (how to assess each condition and manage it); and Pacemaker Optimization (using Doppler echocardiography).
