This Resuscitative TEE: Advanced Clinical Module will provide an introduction to the use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the resuscitation of a patient in cardiac arrest. Resuscitative TEE indications, regional anatomy, echocardiographic anatomy, echocardiographic technique, and complications will be discussed. The course also reviews imaging tips, possible complications and risks, and benefits of resuscitative TEE. In-module questions and a final Mastery Test assess didactic knowledge. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills foundation to build upon when learning how to perform TEE for resuscitation of patients in cardiac arrest.
