Monday night would be great! I hadn't thought out all the specifics as to how this would work, but for starters, we would pick a specific topic and review that information and come up with questions to that topic. If there is anything you don't understand about the topic then you ask your question and everyone will reply. I have currently dissected cerebrovascular. I made my own flashcards, I am studying Davies 3 part and Edleman's review and flashcards. Examples of some comprehensive questions I have are 1.) What test is useful in intraoperative monitoring? 2.) Name some examples of surgical procedures TCD may be used to monitor? 3.) How do you continuously monitor the middle cerebral artery's blood flow? 4.) Using the transtemporal window, you see a vessel at the depth of 5mm this vessel has antegrade flow, with a propaga

propagation speed between 43-67 cm/sec, also a terminal branch for the ICA? That is suppose to.be a.depth of 50mm. This repetition helps a lot you will begin to see patterns, it may be more than what you need to know but at least this way you know.enough. Since you have taken the test find an area of weakness and we will begin there and I guarantee you will get a revelation.

However, remember, that ARDMS changes their test every 3 months. That is why when you fail you can't take it for another 3 months. But its always a good review to have. I had wrote down everything I remembered after my exams topic wise and I can email you the lists. Good luck everyone I feel your pain.

Yes I am very interested in your notes. I took the exam for the fourth time and scored a 540. I am very frustrated and really wanting to pass this test. I passed the spi exam the first time I took it. This is really causing some heartache. I have to reschedule my test. I am hoping with some new study guides and study groups on this website I can successfully pass this next time. Please e-mail me with your notes.
Thank you

Tammy don't give up, you are so CLOSE, it has to be the way you are applying the material. Do you realize that a passing score is only is only .792 and you scored .771. You definitely know the material. You may be over reading and getting tripped up on wording. Just calm down you can do it! Look at it this way, I have probably seen all of the test that they have and that is GREAT. Whatever your next test is, you have probably seen it. Now more worries for you! Leave an email and I will email you what I am studying. Anita who passed her exam on March 26 has a post on here of things to familiarize yourself with. She also emailed me that same list and gave me some great information on what to know as for as if you have a velocity that is THIS high, then what % is the stenosis? If you have a waveform where is the lesion? If appears it is designed to make you apply the principals, it is obvious you know it. Stay encouraged, leave your email, and I will email you and leave you my number and we van try to help you get a pattern down to get this test passed.

Hey were you able to open up the notes that sent labeled aortic arch? I just came in from church and I had an email from Tammy. She was not able too. I also sent it to my yahoo mail address and I opened it up just fine. I don't know why it isn't working. Let me know if you were able to open it and if not maybe we will open up a group on Facebook and that way when van post and have real time interaction. My notes consisted of questions along with the answers. I will post it on here tonight just to see if you all like the format or would you rather just have questions. I personally like it this way and later apply it to questions. Either way we will cover all of the material and be able to apply it in a technical setting. It is a process and it will work. As I have observed from the various comments you will not know what test you will get, so it doesn't matter what someone else's test had on it. Stick to the outline and cover ALL of the material so you are prepared for ANY test. One thing that holds true is the information cannot change."It is what it is"! If you start off learning the basics as you progress the material comes up again adding more information.

gemini_breeze in Rutherford, New Jersey said: I would be Texas! Online study group sounds great! I'm taking my RVS first next month, then pending passing that, I am taking the RVT. Already passed the SPI last month. What's your email? Email me jenilozauskas@hotmail.com

The most important branches off the subclavian artery are the verterbral, thyrocervical, internal thoracic and costocervical arteries. The verterbral arteries form a confluence after they enter the skull through the foreman magnum. What artery is formed my the confluence of the verterbral arteries. The basilar artery is formed by the confluence of the verterbral arteries. The basilar artery divides into which arteries to form part of the circle of Willis? The basilar artery divides into the posterior communicating arteries to form part of the circle of willis. Which artery originates from the common carotid artery, travels through the skull before giving off any branches? The internal carotid artery originates from the common carotid artery and travels through the skull before giving off any branches. Name the first branch that the ICA gives off.

The intracranial branches arising from the ICA are the opthalmic artery, the anterior choroidal artery, and the posterior communicating artery, then it divides into the middle cerebral artery (MCA) and the anterior cerebral artery (ACA).

I took and passed the ARDMS RVT exam this past Sat. I used the 3 part set from Davies publishing (review book, CD mock exam and bound note cards). I studied for 1 month and outlined the entire review book (47 typed pages!). I also took the practice exam on the ARDMS website for $25 (30 questions in 30 minutes).

Good luck!

Sorry about the inconvenience, I just added you both to a shared file that should allow you access to the file. I posted in this forum an outline on the aortic arch. Which consisted is questions and answers to outline material I had been studying on the cerebrovascular system. I copied and pasted it from the Google doc so I hope it calibrated correctly. If not you should have full access to the document now via you email addresses since I added you both to the shared file list. It is approximately one and one-third typed pages. I am now organizing more information in the same format that will be available sometime today. Later I will provide you with questions that will cover all of this information. This will give you the opportunity to see how you apply this information. I am also in the process of scanning in some diagrams that I used to label to learn the anatomy. Please be patient as I am computer illiterate but I am learning. As we go over the cerebrovascular system also study waveforms. It seems like a lot but it is mostly repetitive. Next the venous system. Share all the information you can this is how we will be successful

I've been studying Rumwell's Davies study book, mock exam, and flash cards. I'm hoping that if I push myself, I can be ready by the end of the month. I would love it if you could forward me your outlines (I'm horrible at taking notes!!!), I'd appreciate it and would be willing to cover any costs incurred. Congratulations again! Lisa

I spent a lot of time memorizing numbers, but the test really didn't require that. Other than the depths and mean velocities of the vessels in the circle of willis, most of the questions involved explanations of how the waveforms change with respect to proximal or distal disease, i.e. increased PSV, dampened velocities, etc. My exam had a lot of ultrasound images on it as well.

No, however I recently heard of a girl that failed the RVT then she took the RVT again and after finding out she passed the second time was notified that she actually passed the first time and was given a refund for test 2. Seems like she should have been compensated for the pain and suffering of taking it the second time.

Thank you for the comment. I did appeal with a written letter and plan to take it again. I thought this exam was suppose to be fair. Not so vague and frustrating. I know the material, just the questions did not have a specific answer, even a mathmatical questions. The girl should not have had to take the test again, if she past the first time then she past. Being refunded for the test just does not make up for the emotions and time spent preparing for the exam.
