Community Echocardiography


Echocardiography plays a very important role in the management of patients with heart disease in primary and secondary care, but the direct echo services in primary care is scarce. One approach to improving this is to establish community echo services run by GPs after intensive and formal training. This is not a substitute for a full echo study provided by a cardiology department. Nevertheless community echocardiography can be extremely useful in many common cardiac conditions.
