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.
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.
