ECHO Training thru Primary Children's Hospital
Pediatric echocardiography is mainly used for the detection of congenital heart defects. The sonographer performing these echoes will need to have an additional skillset that will allow them to acquire the additional pediatric views. To aide in pediatric echo training, please obtain approval from your supervisor and notify the echo lab manager at Primary Children’s Hospital. They will help coordinate training to improve your sonographer’s pediatric echocardiography skills.

ECHO Training thru Wisconsin SHINE Project
The Sonographer Education portion is designed to assist cardiac sonographers in performing the initial neonatal echocardiogram as part of a comprehensive evaluation for hypoxia. Sonographers performing these echocardiograms may not regularly image pediatric patients and may have limited familiarity with the differences between congenital echocardiography and adult echocardiography. The program reviews "The Terrible Ten" echo findings of critical congenital heart disease and helps the sonographer generate a differential based on those findings. The program also discusses common forms of critical congenital heart disease in more detail.
The program is organized into an introduction and overview portion, detailed discussion of the "Terrible Ten" findings, and individual sections on each form of critical congenital heart disease.
