Title: hTEE-Guided Resuscitation of a Patient in Septic Shock
Facility: Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX, USA
Ryan A. Lawless MD (Memorial Hermann Hospital, Houston TX, USA) used hTEE to help manage resuscitation of a patient in septic shock. Notice the improvement in volume status (LVEDA) and contractility (FAC) as a result of hTEE-guided resuscitation; also four units of plasma and a 70% decrease in levo over seven hours. As Dr. Lawless emphasized, "We were able to swiftly resuscitate this septic patient with confidence, using hTEE."
