Table 4 Assessment of PSE images for presence or absence of significant LVSD by sonographic trainee vs. echocardiologist (n = 66)

From: The utility of pocket-sized echocardiography to assess left ventricular systolic function prior to permanent pacemaker implantation

  Echocardiologist evaluation
LVSD absent (LVEF > 40 % ) LVSD present (LVEF < 40 % )
Sonographic trainee interpretation LVSD absent (LVEF > 40%) 60 (91%) 2 (3%)
LVSD present (LVEF < 40%) 1 (1%) 3 (5%)
