- Gorlin Formula for Valve Area
- International Normalized Ratio (INR)
- Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP)
- Metabolic Syndrome Criteria (AHA/NHLBI 2005)
- Metabolic Syndrome Criteria (ATP III)
- O2 Consumption
- O2 Content of Arterial Blood
- O2 Content of Venous Blood
- Oxygenation Index (OI)
- Pulmonary Vascular Resistance
- QT Interval Correction
- Qs/Qt Right to Left Shunt Fraction
- Respiratory Quotient
- Systemic Vascular Resistance
- Systolic Pressure Variation
- TIMI Score for NSTEMI and UA
- TIMI Score for STEMI
- Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL)

It will help them become more familiar with normal and abnormal echocardiograms through access to 250 annotated images and 189 videos, encompassing a wide range of cardiac pathology.

Each chapter includes annotated images and videos associated with the most common cardiovascular diseases. Chapters include:
- The Normal Exam
- Aortic Valve Disease
- Mitral Valve Disease
- Tricuspid and Pulmonary Valve Disease
- Myocardial Infarction
- Cardiomyopathy
- Diseases of the Aorta and Pericardium
- Diseases of the Atria
- Congenital Heart Disease in the Adult
- Diseases of the Right Ventricle
- Infectious Endocarditis
- Transesophageal Echocardiography

Approximate time required to download this application over a Wi-Fi connection from the App Store is 35 minutes. Once downloaded, all images are locally stored on the device and do not require a network connection for viewing or video playback.
