    • Diuretics (pulmonary edema if present)
    • Medications (Dopamine, Dobutamine, Neosvnephrine)
  5. What is the primary purpose of a balloon pump?

  8. What is the primary tool used on patients with known or suspected masses?
  9. Where are primary and secondary tumors found?
    Primary - Formed atrial septum by stalk and most commonly found in LA

    Secondary - Form in lungs and most commonly found in LA
  10. What gives rise to the entire cardio vascular system?
    Mesodermal Germ Layer
  11. What are the 2nd and 3rd layers of endotheol Tubes known as?
    Cardiac Mantle
  12. What happens to the Ductus Atteriosus after birth?
    It closes 1-2 after birth and become Ligamentum Arteriosum
  13. What happens to Foramen Ovale after child birth?
    Closes and becomes Fossa Ovales. If it does not close, it is called Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) and may require repair.
  14. What is the Tetrology of Fallot?
    • 1) Pulmonic Stenosis, Large VSD, Enlarge of RV, Displacement of Aorta
