What you'll learn

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is an invasive procedure that is undertaken by a suitably qualified physician, with assistance from a nurse and a sonographer. It utilizes sound waves to create high quality motion pictures of heart and its blood vessels. It consists of a transducer which can transmit the sound waves to the monitor. It can help in assessing the heart condition in and during the surgical procedure and can assist cardiac catheterization.

Stress echocardiography also called echocardiography stress test that determines how the heart and blood vessels functions. These tests are important when a patient is undergoing any cardiac surgical procedure or during the surgical procedure to aid in catheterization. These are one of the important steps or diagnostic procedures which are advised to study about the heart functions. Therefore, knowledge on these diagnostic procedures is important to assist for any cardiac surgical procedure.

This SIMTICS module teaches you how to prepare for and assist with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). It also covers how to perform stress echocardiography, where the heart is imaged under simulated exercise conditions. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to assist with TEE and to perform stress echocardiography.
