What to Expect When Having an Echocardiogram


Fall 2023

Type of Culminating Activity

Student presentation


Each day my patients were coming into the clinic with a lot of anxiety and questions about their echocardiogram. I saw a need to provide a solution to this. I came up with the idea to create an educational video that patients could watch before coming in for their procedure. The video provided answers to the most frequently asked questions and a brief walk through of the procedure itself. The patients enjoyed the videos and felt like it did help them not only understand the procedure but also made them less nervous about the test. Overall the project was a sucess, with some minor tweaking to the video, it will be something that our clinic will be implementing for future patients.
