Yes, I took the pilot test.
It's tough but fair. Have a thorough understanding of all CHD and the surgeries needed to correct it. If you have a couple years experience at large center you should be able to pass it easily. Echocardiography in Pediatric Heart Disease by Rebecca Snydder is the bible of peds echo as far as I'm concerned....

Has anyone taken CCI Peds echo? Just wondering if the SDMS registry review is a good choice? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Was the physics portion of the pedi echo registry extremely difficult? That is the part I am dreading...mainly having to calculate a lot of formulas.

In most if not all ped labs the values are figured through Z-scores. I have used the boston z-score where I have been. There are z-score calculators online.Just plug in the numbers and height ,weight to calculate BSA's Hope this help.

My next registry is ARDMS RDCS (PE).. but I have this idea of taking the CCI's RCCS. I having a grasp of congential abnormalities and their associated repairs should be enough.

I am scheduled to take the RCCS in July. I have seen a few of the questions and want to know if anyone knows these answers. What does Joint Commission call it when you have to report a critical finding to Dr? What position should you put someone in to get right parasternal views? We don't do that view here. thanks for the help if anyone knows the answers

J-Co is for accreditation and certifications. Right parasternal view, you would put them in the right decubitus position. If you plan on taking the RCCS, you should know that you are gonna get a good amount of dextrocardia, Mesocardia, dextrarotation... many of the views are gonna be on the right side.
