Introduction:

Several publications have drawn attention to the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal pain (WRMSP) among cardiac sonographers. WRMSP is a common cause of work restrictions and results in loss of productive work time. Beyond the costs of compensation claims, medical expenses and resulting absenteeism, occupational musculoskeletal pain affects the physical health and well-being of staff members.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Evaluate how work-related musculoskeletal pain (WRMSP) among cardiac sonographers is highly prevalent and affects daily activities
  • Distinguish how sonographers' pain is more severe than that of peer employees
  • Recognize that the neck, shoulder, lower back, and hand are the most frequently affected regions.
  • Identify why sonographers more often seek medical evaluation and miss work days because of pain
**IMPORTANT: Registration Instructions**
  • Registration is required to receive credit. All credit must be claimed within 30 days of the event date.
