THE RESUSCITATIVE TEE WORKSHOP

los angeles - new york city - montreal - london

The first practical course dedicated to the practice of resuscitative TEE

DESPITE GROWING INTEREST AMONG EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS AND INTENSIVISTS, AN IMPORTANT BARRIER TO ADOPTION IS ACCESS TO TRAINING THAT IS TAILORED TO THE PRACTICE OF RESUSCITATIVE TEE.

The team of clinicians behind The Resuscitative TEE Project, a multidisciplinary group of Faculty who have pioneered the development of this application and accumulated vast teaching experience, have developed the first state-of-the-art practical course on resuscitative TEE.

Through this workshop, we provide emergency physicians and intensivists, with a unique opportunity to gain basic training in this emerging modality.

Who is this workshop designed for?

  • Emergency Physicians

  • intensivists

  • non-cardiac anesthesiologists

  • other providers practicing in resuscitation settings (i.e. trauma surgeons, physician ASSISTANTs, etc.)

THE FORMAT

The course consists of asynchronous learning (pre workshop) and one live didactic session (the workshop). Selected material for self-study including a temporary license to the heartworks e-learn platform are provided in advance. During the one-day "DEEP DIVE" workshop, participants receive didactics AND hands-on training on high-fidelity simulators.

OPTIONAL COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT

An optional, hands-on examination to allow participants demonstrate skill acquisition and competency in focused TEE examination will be available AT THE END OF THE WORKSHOP. THIS IS A 1:1 evaluation by one of the faculty and will test the both motor and cognitive competency participants.

This optional assessment can be particularly useful for physicians leading the development of TEE programs at their institutions. Participants who choose to take the assessment, will be provided a competency checklist with log of 10 examinations if successfully performed.

SPECIFIC GOALS: through the review of pre-workshop resources and the didactics held during the one-day workshop, we aim to provide participants with the following skills:

MOTOR SKILLS:

  • Probe insertion

  • Image acquisition

COGNITIVE SKILLS

  • Understand principles of TEE operation: Transducer controls and understanding of different planes of movement necessary to generate images: anteflexion, retroflexion, rotation.

  • Relevant cardiac anatomy

  • Rationale and evidence for a focused TEE protocol

  • Indications / applications for each view

    • Middle esophageal four chamber (ME 4C)

    • Transgastric mid short axis (TG Mid SAX)

    • Middle esophageal long axis (ME LAX)

    • Middle esophageal bicaval (ME Bicaval)

    • descending thoracic aorta (dta lax and sax)

  • Image interpretation:

    • Identification of normal anatomy in all four basic views

    • Correlation with anatomy in TTE views

    • Identification of basic pathological conditions

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: acquire the focused TEE views and correctly identify cardiac anatomy and identify basic pathological conditions.

EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS:

A set of pre-workshop web-based and interactive materials will be made available for self-study of participants prior to their attendance to the workshop.  Brief (15-20 min) case-based lectures will be presented during the workshop.

COURSE VENUE

do you hate those courses in a classroom or the basement of the hospital? we hate them too. The resuscitative tee workshop is held in hand picked, state-of-the-art interactive learning facilities.

 

SIMULATION EQUIPMENT

Teaching TEE hundreds of hours, we learnt that a key aspect for a highly efficient training experience, is to spend several hours of structured, guided practice on the high-fidelity simulator. We have partnered with HeartWorks to ensure participants are not just getting "a taste" of TEE, but actually becoming proficient at it. 

 

not just a "taste" of TEE...

multiple High fidelity TEE simulator systems are provided by HeartWorks.
