Transesophageal Echocardiography: Image Acquisition
Rob Arntfield, MD, FRCPC and Atul Jaidka, MD, PGY2 takes us through the fundamentals of performing a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). This video uses a live demonstration to introduce probe manipulation, how to obtain different views, and how to landmark for these different views. The techniques being presented will help you in performing goal-directed TEE in critically ill patients, whether it be for visualizing valvular disorders or during a resuscitation. Make sure to check out the image acquisition screencasts afterwards to learn how to interpret your TEE findings!
