- Transducer: Phased Array (AKA “cardiac probe”)
- Preset: Cardiac
One of the most confusing parts of performing cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography) is understanding where the indicator goes on the ultrasound screen and probe orientation.
With the Cardiac Preset:
- Make sure the Ultrasound Image Indicator Marker is on the RIGHT side of the ultrasound screen.
- This is different from almost all other standard applications where the Ultrasound Image Indicator Marker is on the LEFT side of the screen.
Cardiac Ultrasound Machine Placement:
- Place the ultrasound machine on the patient’s right side, so you can scan with your right hand and manipulate ultrasound buttons with your left hand.
