Technological advances affect all areas of society and healthcare is no exception; in fact, it is one of the sectors that benefits most from new developments in technology. This is the case for the diagnosis of cardiac pathology and the ultrasound devices used. Clinical cardiac ultrasound opens a door to the advanced diagnosis of multiple heart diseases and, nowadays, its use is also fundamental in the daily work of nurses, so it is essential for them to have up-to-date knowledge of the use of this type of tools.
It must be taken into account that clinical ultrasound is a tool that helps to diagnose and treat patients in emergency situations or with intensive care needs. Today it is one of the most popular and valuable tools for guiding diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. In addition, it has the advantages of portability, accuracy, real-time display, reproducibility and efficiency.
Technological advances have made it possible to reduce the size of the equipment, making it cheaper and more portable, and have increased the capacity of clinical ultrasound, leading to a notable increase in its applications. Today, more accurate ultrasound diagnosis, safe ultrasound-guided interventions, precise non-invasive hemodynamic evaluations and rapid assessment of traumatic injuries are all possible.
In this Postgraduate Certificate, TECH offers students the most complete specialization program on clinical ultrasound, specifying its use in the care of patients who find themselves in emergency situations or those who need intensive care. Additionally, as it is a 100% online program, the student will have the opportunity to balance their studies with the rest of their daily commitments, so that they will be able to improve their skill level in a comfortable way.
