Roger RCS, RDCS (AE,PE) RVT in Burlingame, California

Tammy in Plymouth, Michigan said: Not yet but I am studying for it.

Tammy, I'm not sure if it is the same way, but when I took adult echo through CCI, they asked a few more clinically related questions that ARDMS's adult echo.

I dont know if it is the same way with CCI's test. I just know that CCI is more cardiovascular focused compared to ARDMS's ultrasound focus. Maybe it is not the same, but in any case, share you thoughts when you complete the RVS.

Thanks in Advance.

I am not taking the echo exam, I am taking the vascular exam. I have worked in the clinical setting for almost 5 years so I do not think I will have a problem but we will see.

I know you are not taking the echo exam, but I'm just saying that I've heard CCI's registries are more than just ultrasound. What problems were you having in the RVT test?

I work at a vein clinic so I do not get any arterial scanning experience. So I think that is my main problem. I went to school for general ultrasound and I have taught myself vascular. I have looked into review classes, taken online review courses and still cannot seem to pass. I know what I am doing in my job but no idea why I cannot seem to pass the rvt. It really frustrates me. The last time I took it, I really felt that I passed and got a score of 529?!?! When you don't get the test back to see what you got wrong and why you really don't know how and where your weaknesses are, it is very confusing. Everything on the sheet that they give back to me always says, may require more study. So I have to look under different avenues because starting in 2014, I have to be registered to continue with my job.
Thanks for your input and if you have any suggestions please let me know.

Tammy,

CCI has the Registered Phlebotomy sonographer exam!!! I wanted to take this, but since I dont work in a vein clinic, I cant sit for it even though I've had training in venous insufficiency.

I will be honest,I dont know if the CCI would be any different for the RVS compared to the RVT. Just by comparison of the study list and asking a few folks that took that route, they told me they cover much the same subjects (Cerebral vascular, arterial and venous), just possibly not to the same percentage.

Besides that I would suggest an ESP course, which I'm sure you know of or have probably taken prior. If you work part time, possibly find a vascular lab at a local hospital and ask to observe, or maybe the MD's you work can find something for you to get more exposure if that is what you need.

I wish you luck regardless.

So have you taken CCI's RVS?

Tammy, take the RVS from CCI. People say it's the same, but it's not. I have both RVS and RVT and the RVS is much easier to pass.

It is for lab percentages. For instance, You want to know out of your total patients the true positive vs the false positives or True negatives to false negatives.

It's kinda confusing, but it's quality assurance.

When you take the RVS, come back and tell everyone the difference was.

If you are not good in arterial, then you know what you need to study. But arterial questions are gonna pop up on the RVS.

Good luck and I think you will be fine. Just study up on what you believe is your weakness.

Can you tell everyone why it was easier? the RVT was tough, but I passed. I thought of going for the RVS, but I was told it had a bit more than just clinical aspects by techs who have taken both.

If CCI would let me sit for the RPhs, then I would put more effort to sit for the RVS, but many of my vascular folks say that the RVT is good enough.

I am studying from Todds cardiovascular review book and I am finding it very informative. I am going to take the CCI exam so I can be an RVS. I have given up on the RVT. After taking it 6 times, I just cannot take the disappointment anymore. THe CCI exam has a 57% pass rate where the RVT has a 35% pass rate. I know what I am doing at my job and the doctors that I work for are very happy with my work but in order for me to stay employed in 2014, I must be registered. SO I think this is the better way to go for me.

donya...on a macro level it actually varies from State to State and even within the States, ultimately varies by whomever your fiscal intermediary is. Best way to determine this is to get on the SDMS website. On this website they have a very well-designed method for finding out the answer. Just be sure to follow the steps carefully. This should ultimately help you.

Thanks I will do that...I have been hearing different answers from different people but no clear answer...So hopefully this site clears it up for me...
