PMID:  8902376     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article presents an overview of the benefits and efficacy of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the critically ill patient. The echocardiographic evaluation of ventricular function both regional and global, is discussed with special emphasis on ischemic heart disease; assessment of preload, interrogation of valvular heart disease (prosthetic and native) and its complications; endocarditis and its complications; intracardiac and extracardiac masses, including pulmonary embolism; aortic diseases (e.g., aneurysan, dissection, and traumatic tears); evaluation of patent foramen ovale and its association with central and peripheral embolic events; advancements in computer technology; and finally, the effect of TEE on critical care.
