Virtual Echocardiography

This resource from Toronto General Hospital’s Perioperative Interactive Education unit gives a good view of two sections through the heart, with ECG loops to match the image. Good for seeing the normal function of cardiac valves.

Updated and includes guide sheets, quizzes and a range of languages.

    Good morning.
    I’m an associate professor of anesthesia and intensive care, interested of TEE in cardiac surgery.
    Can I access to full simulation area of transesophageal echocardiography, to improve my knowledge about TEE teaching?
    Thank you very much for your help.

  2. Hi Luigi!

    Thanks for your interest in the site. I actually have nothing to do with Toronto General Hospital – i juts search the internet for useful animations and clips for high-school science students and teachers to use. Please visit their website (linked in the post) and contact them directly.

    Steve.

  3. Hi steve, Ive been having a bit of an internet session today looking at all things heart related really cool heart reference. I am in the Seca ecg monitor trade so its good to see the information produced in a clear manner allowing the whole process to not be quite as scary.

  5. Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that the link to the Standard Views module was updated some time ago to reflect its finished nature. It can now be found at: http://pie.med.utoronto.ca/TEE/TEE_content/TEE_standardViews.html
