TEE MASTERCLASS

 

The TEE MasterClass is an exclusive teaching program that will allow you to learn the art of transesophageal echocardiography, an important modality and a major component of everyday clinical practice. You will be enabled to image your patients after cardiovascular surgery, in the ICU and much more.

OBJECTIVE:
After completing the TEE MasterClass, you will know when and how to perform a TEE study in the most common scenarios. You will be able to recognize all relevant pathologies with 2D + 3D imaging and Color Doppler.

The TEE MasterClass is an exclusive teaching program that will allow you to apply transesophageal echocardiography in a cardiology lab, the ICU or in a cardiovascular operative theatre.

Therefore, this course will cover a wide range of TEE indications, presented with simulations, demonstrations and cases.

You will be trained to detect different pathologies and conditions with TEE, such as patent foramen ovale, intracardiac thrombi, vegetations, hypo-/hypervolemia, tumors and masses. Emphasis is placed on the assessment of valve pathologies (both native and prosthetic valves), fluid assessment and potential complications of cardiovascular surgery.

The aim is to give you a detailed understanding of when a TEE study should be applied, how to introduce the probe, how to correctly manipulate the probe and to differentiate normal from abnormal structures. After completion, you will be able to perform a complete structural and diagnostic evaluation with the help of TEE and to describe the four ways the probe and the transducer can be manipulated during image acquisition.

You will learn how to make important decisions based on the TEE findings and understand the role of TEE for the monitoring of interventional procedures.

IDEAL FOR:

  • Anesthesiologists<7li>
  • Cardiologists
  • Intensivists

PREMIUM CHAPTERS

1

Mitral Regurgitation

 

When should you perform a TEE study in mitral regurgitation in the first place?

2

TEE on the ICU and after Cardiovascular surgery

 

If you work in a cardiovascular center or if you see patients following heart surgery you will need this chapter.

3

Atrial Shunts

 

You will need TEE to exclude a patent foramen ovale or an atrial septal defect (ASD) as a potential cause of paradox embolism.

4

Source of Embolism

 

Looking for a potential source of embolism is a frequent indication for a TEE.

5

Imaging

 

Here you will learn how to introduce the probe and how to find the standard views proposed by the international societies.

6

Introduction to TEE

 

Find out why transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is so important, which problems you can solve and where problems can arise.

7

Endocarditis

 

TEE is mandatory in the setting of endocarditis. We collected hundreds of cases that will demonstrate how many “faces” endocarditis can have.

8

Aorta

 

In this chapter we explain how to image the aorta and provide loads of examples and cases.

9

Valvular Heart Diseases

 

We threw all other valve pathologies such as mitral stenosis, aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation and tricuspid regurgitation into this chapter.

10

Tumors and Masses

 

Benign masses, cardiac malignancies and pseudotumors. These are the three topics that we will deal with in this chapter.

11

Monitoring of Interventions

 

TEE is increasingly used to monitor procedures in the Cath lab.

WHAT USERS THINK

Very structured course and helps to improve the interpretation of the scan.
