RESUSCITATIVE TEE COLLABORATIVE


There are number of issues commonly faced by institutions when implementing a program for the practice of point-of-care TEE in Emergency Department or ICU settings (i.e. purchase of probes, access to training with simulators and operating rooms, logistics of cleaning and maintenance, privileges/credentialing, etc.). We believe that by joining forces and sharing experiences such as lessons on issues related to implementation, education and training, a group of collaborating institutions can mutually benefit from the collective experience, promote best practices and improve patient care.

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF THE RESUSCITATIVE TEE PROJECT, A group of programs with established resuscitative TEE programs have come together and committed to collaborate with the goal to advance this field.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Resuscitative TEE Collaborative is a multidisciplinary initiative developed by The Resuscitative TEE Project, aimed to advance research and education in the field of resuscitative TEE.

The Resuscitative TEE Collaborative has four main goals:

  1. further research in the field of resuscitative TEE

  2. develop up-to-date educational resourceS

  3. facilitate and support the establishment of new resuscitative TEE programs

  4. raise the visibility of resuscitative TEE in the medical and lay communities worldwide

RESEARCH

Resuscitative TEE Registry

To date, only small, single-center observational studies have been published on the use of resuscitative TEE. The Resuscitative TEE Collaborative maintains a registry of resuscitative TEEs, allowing for high-quality, multi-center research to improve outcomes for critically ill patients. Participating programs can use data from this registry to conduct studies. 

Interested centers in the Collaborative with the capability to conduct clinical research (i.e. prospective  observational studies, clinical trials, etc.) can enroll in future clinical studies that will be led by participating programs.

EDUCATION

Resuscitative TEE Rounds

Unlike transthoracic echocardiography, which is performed multiple times a day in most Emergency Departments and Intensive Care Units, there is a relative paucity of resuscitative TEEs. To allow for ongoing learning and to enhance the expertise of our members, The Resuscitative TEE Collaborative hosts monthly case conferences and lectures to review common clinical pearls and pitfalls which are available to members and non-members alike.

Regional Collaboration

Access to simulators and training opportunities represent an important barrier to the adoption of resuscitative TEE. High fidelity simulators are expensive and often underutilized. The Resuscitative TEE Collaborative coordinates access to simulators, especially in the early stages of program development.

There are numerous hurdles to overcome when implementing a new program for point of care TEE in the Emergency Department or Intensive Care Unit. By sharing our own experiences and providing an open forum for discussion, we believe that collaborating institutions can mutually benefit from the collective experience, promote best practices, and improve patient care. By bringing together leaders and experts from across the world, members will have access to an unparalleled support system and professional network in the resuscitative TEE community.
