This session will explain normal left ventricular (LV) function and how to diagnose an abnormal left ventricle (LV). Qualitative and quantitative methods of assessing LV function will be described. Attention is drawn to ways in which pathology and interventions may influence the interpretation of a basic transthoracic echocardiography (TTE or 'echo') examination in the critical care setting. The importance of clinical context and of recognising when expert assistance is needed are emphasised.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the structure and function of the normal LV and use simple methods to quantify LV size and function
• Recognise when the structure or function of the LV is abnormal, and describe the findings
• Appreciate how confounding factors seen in the critical care setting may influence interpretation of echo appearances
• Recognise when more expert assessment is indicated
