Your patient is in distress, and all an ECG can tell you is that he has had a previous heart attack. When are 2-dimensional (2-D) echocardiographic and Doppler studies appropriate options, and what special information can they provide? In the case presented, the Doppler recording profiled the hemodynamic status of the patient. Although the 2-D echocardiogram provided valuable information, only the Doppler study is shown to illustrate how sophisticated hemodynamic information can be gathered from Doppler examination. Check your review of the recording with the discussion on the next page.
