Resuscitative Transesophageal Echocardiography ( TEE ) Advanced Clinical Ultrasound Training

Learn about 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. 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.

How it Works

Each SonoSim module contains:

  • A Didactic, Cloud-Based, Multimedia Course
  • Real-Time Knowledge Checks & a Mastery Test
  • A Series of Hands-On, Real Patient Scanning Cases Accessed with the SonoSimulator® Ultrasound Probe

The SonoSimulator Ultrasound Probe is a one-time purchase and is your access key to the SonoSim modules you license annually. License to each module is purchased in the first year, and maintained with an annual membership fee. Keep scanning and maintain all your member benefits, including annual access to all your modules, with your low annual membership fee of $295 (complimentary in your first year).

Course Highlights

SonoSim cloud-based, multimedia, didactic courses are created by leading ultrasound experts, and are internet accessible immediately after purchase, on any device. There are knowledge checks with real-time feedback throughout each course, as well as a Mastery Test that is automatically graded.

The course in this module covers topics including:

  • Use of Transesophageal Echocardiography ( TEE ) in Resuscitation
  • Regional Anatomy Relevant to TEE
  • Echocardiographic Anatomy & Key Positions
  • Echocardiographic Technique & Considerations
  • Imaging Tips & Pitfalls when Performing TEE
  • TEE Case Studies of use in Acute Coronary Syndrome, Massive Pulmonary Embolism and Aortic Dissection

SonoSimulator Scanning Cases

The SonoSimulator® helps develop and maintain the critical visuomotor and visuospatial skills that are central to image acquisition and interpretation with real patient imagery, expert tutorials on-demand, and real-time feedback on success.

The 2 real patient scanning cases & 2 SkillBox cases in this module include and cover:

  • Patient Types: Adult Only, Male & Female
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Develop Visuospatial Skills & Cognitive Task Awareness Needed to Manipulate a TEE Transducer & Acquire the Imaging Angles Necessary to Achieve Desired TEE Views
  • Doppler & Imaging Modes: Color-Flow Doppler
  • Scanning Approaches: Intra-Oral, Upper-Esophageal, Mid-Esophageal, Transgastric, Distal-Thoracic Aorta, Mid-Thoracic Aorta, Proximal-Thoracic Aorta, Upper Esophageal Aortic Arch
  • Transducer Types: TEE
  • Special Case Features: Anatomic Layer Removal, Simulated TEE Probe Tip Flexion, Extension, Imaging Transducer Angle Changes, & Rotation Controls, Keyboard/Mouse Controls (SonoSimulator Ultrasound Probe still required for license)

Continued Medical Education

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.
