Collapse and Cyanosis
It’s a clot! No it’s a thrombus! Or… maybe it’s a mass… What are those things messing with Tomie Timon’s Doppler in the pulmonic outflow tract in this echocardiogram?
Tomie Timon RDMS of Eugene, Oregon, shows us “what does this” with Dr. Peter Modler’s help from sunny AustriaJ. Oh yes the world is truly flat Mr. Friedman when veterinary diagnoses come from half way across the planet by means of an Oregon-Austrian connection.

History: An 11-year-old NM Golden retriever was presented for evaluation of two episodes of collapse and cyanosis. Additional history was that the patient is more lethargic than usual. Cardiac auscultation did not reveal any abnormalities and blood pressure was normal.
