We are pleased to present Jonathan Sweatman, RDCS, RCS, RVS, RT Pediatric and Fetal Cardiac Sonographer from the University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital for a discussion on
cyanotic congenital heart defects. Join us for A Case of the Baby Blues on Zoom!
When neonates are born with cyanotic heart disease, time is of the essence. This course will cover those specific cardiac defects which cause cyanosis and require surgical intervention. The discussion will include sonographic markers for those anomalies, as well as the necessary repairs and medical expectations in life after surgery. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize sonographic structural markers of cyanotic congenital heart defects
- Assess the hemodynamic severity of cyanotic congenital anomalies
- List cyanotic congenital heart defects and their required surgical repairs
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Jonathan P. Sweatman, RDCS, RCS, RVS, RT began his medical career as a Radiologic/CT Technologist. His interest in Ultrasound led him to further his education and steered him toward his first professional sonography position in adult cardiology at St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Always looking for new challenges, Jonathan joined a pediatric cardiology team at a children’s hospital, part of the Ochsner Health System, which brought him closer to his New Orleans roots. Eventually, his expertise led him to his present position in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where he currently works as a Pediatric/Fetal Cardiac Sonographer at the University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital.
Although fully immersed in adult, pediatric, and fetal cardiac sonography, Jonathan enjoys spending his spare time on road trips with his wife and 4 year-old son.
This activity has been approved for 1.0 SDMS CME credit.
The CME participant roster will be reported by Ultrasound Solutions Corp. to the SDMS CME Tracker System.
