“Guidelines for Performing a Comprehensive Transesophageal Echocardiographic Examination in Children and All Patients with Congenital Heart Disease: Recommendations from the American Society of Echocardiography”
CME Information: 2.0 credits
Release date: Feb. 2019 Valid through: Feb. 2020
Introduction/Statement of Need:
TEE in the pediatric population became widespread after the introduction of commercially available miniaturized probes in the late 1980s. Since then, the safety and invaluable clinical utility of this technique for many types of pediatric and adult congenital cardiac surgery and cardiac interventional procedures has become well established. The increasing applications of TEE coupled with newer technology led the American Society of Echocardiography and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (ASE/SCA) to publish the most recent recommendations for a comprehensive TEE evaluation in 2013 geared primarily to adult patients with structurally normal hearts.
This activity is designed for all cardiac sonographers and cardiovascular physicians with a primary interest and knowledge base in the field of echocardiography; in addition, residents, researchers, clinicians, intensivists, and other medical professionals.
At the end of this article the reader will better be able to:
The American Society of Echocardiography is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The American Society of Echocardiography designates this enduring material for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to2.0 MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM). Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
