ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is excited to welcome back Jeff Jewell, BS, RDCS, FASE, Lead Pediatric Cardiac Sonographer at WakeMed Children’s Hospital in North Carolina, for an illuminating discussion on fetal arrhythmias.
Fetal arrhythmias are a small section of referrals to a pediatric cardiologist, but can have a large impact on care for the mother and fetus. Although most of the time the cause of these arrhythmias is unknown, there are some recognized potential causes. This course will provide a systematic approach into uncovering identifiable arrhythmias, as well as explaining why Doppler and M-Mode strategies work for gathering information about the cardiac electrical system. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit, provided one is present for the entire event)
This event is generously sponsored by IFSER. Learn more about the 2023 Educator’s Summit below:

• Describe different arrhythmias and potential outcomes for the fetus
• Recognize the meaning behind the patterns of the EKG tracing
About Our Speaker: Jeff Jewell, BS, RDCS, FASE, is the Lead Pediatric Cardiac Sonographer at WakeMed Children’s Hospital in Raleigh, NC. Jeff has been a Sonographer since graduating with distinction in 1996 from the U.S. Naval Cardiovascular Technologist Program. During his early career, he worked in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory where he oversaw the Electrophysiology Laboratory and the Pediatric Laboratory. Once he left the Navy, he accepted a position at UNC-Chapel Hill in the Pediatric Echo Lab. While working at UNC, he began his role as an educator training new Sonography Students and Adult Sonographers that were performing pediatric exams from remote sites.
Jeff strongly believes it is important to be involved with multiple professional societies and to dedicate volunteer time on different committees to increase one’s knowledge and meet people from all around the country. To fulfill that pledge, he has lectured for the North Carolina Ultrasound Society (NCUS) and served on their Board of Directors, as both Vice President and President. His current position with NCUS is Treasurer. Jeff is also a member of the American Society of Echocardiography, serving on their Guidelines and Standards Committee, as well as on the Communications Committee for the Society of Pediatric Echocardiography.
Beyond his numerous volunteer activities, he has been published in the November 2021 issue of ECHO Magazine.
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.
Important update from the SDMS:
SDMS no longer allows its CME providers to issue Partial Credit for attendance. If you join late or leave early, the SDMS will no longer permit us to award partial pro-rated credit.
Therefore, from now on, in order to receive CME credit, you must be in attendance for the ENTIRE event via your own unique Zoom link that Zoom emailed to you when you registered. Then, and only then, will USC be able to award you any credit. So, please be prompt and attentive to the time schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience, but again, this is a new SDMS policy we must abide by. Thank you for understanding.
