  • Credits: 3.0

CVS 213 PRINCIPLES OF EKG

This course will focus on EKG theory and interpretation. The student will learn how to perform an EKG on a patient, as well as learning to recognize basic rhythms and the components of an EKG. Students will also review case studies throughout this course.

  • Credits: 2.0

CVS 177 SONOGRAPHY BRIDGE COURSE

This course is designed to meet the needs of students who have left the NMC Sonography Program for one semester or longer. Emphasis is placed on assessment of theoretical knowledge, laboratory and clinical skills necessary for the student to continue to progress in the Sonography Program. Students may be assigned to a clinical, didactic or laboratory experience. The plan of study will be developed by the Program Director upon completion of a student assessment (this may include, but is not limited to, curriculum review, skills assessment, completion of an Academic Development Plan, etc.). Credit hours will be determined by the amount of work that is necessary for the student to ensure competency at the appropriate level to progress in the program.

  • Credits: 1.0 - 6.0

CVS 111 CARDIAC ANATOMY & IMAGE OPTIMIZATION

This course is designed to explore basic anatomy and imaging techniques of the cardiac system.  Students will learn different basic cardiac images and optimization skills to achieve the best quality image.  This course will incorporate lab sessions to start basic imaging, and learning basic knobology of the ultrasound equipment.  Correlation of theory to practice will be measured through attendance, participation, quizzes, assignments, scanning assignments, and competency exams over the course of the semester.

  • Credits: 2.0

CVS 110 VASCULAR ANATOMY & IMAGE OPTIMIZATION

This course is designed to explore basic anatomy and imaging techniques of the vascular system.  Students will begin performing carotid and lower extremity venous ultrasound examinations.  This course will incorporate lab sessions to perform basic imaging optimization skills by scanning and understanding the basic knobology of the ultrasound equipment.  Correlation of theory to practice will be measured through attendance, participation, quizzes, assignments, scanning assignments, and competency exams over the course of the semester.
