Competence in Critical care Echocardiography

The ICU is increasingly using echocardiography. It has been demonstrated that TTE improves patient care in 97% of critically sick patients using a condensed focus assessment procedure. When a patient has an endotracheal tube in place, TOE is the first line echocardiographic evaluation and is frequently more helpful in the ICU situation. The safety profile of TOE has been extensively documented, despite the fact that it is categorized as a semi-invasive treatment; the incidence of esophageal perforation is estimated to be 1 in 5000, and the fatality rate to be 1 in 10,000.
