eCourse: Modules 1 through 2 - Complete Cerebrovascular



Rita Shugart RN, RVT, FSVU presents a two-module, comprehensive Cerebrovascular Review beginning with extracranial and intracranial anatomy with anatomical variants followed by a discussion of the primary mechanisms of cerebrovascular disease. Patient history, clinical symptomatology and physical assessment are reviewed. The first module concludes with a segment covering extracranial vessel identification, flow patterns and plaque morphology in carotid duplex scanning. In Module 2 of the Cerebrovascular Review, Ms. Shugart discusses carotid duplex protocols and practical scanning tips. A review of carotid interpretation includes current diagnostic criteria, correlation criteria and techniques to identify conditions causing over and underestimation of carotid velocities. Other topics covered include miscellaneous pathology which may be encountered during a carotid duplex exam including subclavian steal, carotid dissection, carotid body tumor, fibromuscular dysplasia and neointimal hyperplasia. A segment on Transcranial Doppler and Imaging identifies intracranial anatomy, insonation windows, vessel depth, velocities, and direction of flow. This module concludes with a review of various correlation methods.

eCourse Module 13 - Test-Taking Strategies



The ability to perform well on a multiple choice test is a skill that requires both fore-thought and practice. In this module, some very unique techniques are taught which will significantly change your test taking approach, as well as improve your test taking abilities. Within this module we will discuss concepts which include how best to read a test question, how to approach answering a test question, types of questions, distracter types, dealing with questions of inversion, logic and reasoning skills, and intelligent use of scrap paper. Additionally, specific test questions are given which allow for direct application of these concepts.


Physiological Testing Techniques and Interpretation



This is a "must read" for anyone involved with the noninvasive assessment of vascular disorders. This extensively illustrated workbook by Bob Scissons provides a wealth of detailed, easy-to-understand information about performing accurate physiologic testing and testing procedures.

Vascular Technology ExamSim Suite CD



Designed to provide an efficient way of preparing for national board exams, this Vascular Technology ExamSim Suite CD authored by Marsha M. Neumyer delivers a customized study plan so you don't spend time studying material you already know! The CD starts with a full tutorial on test-taking strategies designed to improve your test-taking skills overall. Next, you are asked to take a timed, full-length exam with 120 questions. At the end of the exam, an intelligent patented analysis package delivers hundreds of details as to your specific areas of content strengths and weaknesses. In addition, it provides information on your test taking skills showing you how you can become a better test-taker. Unlimited access is also available to review each question, how you answered, the correct answer and a detailed explanation as to why. Prior to taking the next exam, it is recommended, that you spend time studying the material where you are weak and then try taking the second exam. After working through the third exam and analysis, you can retake the exams following the same process (24 exams) until you feel fully prepared to sit for your registry exam. By using an ExamSim Suite CD to prepare, you will have studied the right material and have spent your limited study time wisely.
