For high-risk cardiac patients, including those undergoing heart transplant, receiving mechanical circulatory support (MCS), and experiencing right ventricular failure, hTEE offers continuously available, direct visualization of cardiac performance. Cardiac optimization with hTEE has substantial implications on patient outcomes and the hospital bottom line.
Leading clinicians specializing in mechanical support highlight the specific impact of hTEE in the care of MCS patients, including VAD, ECMO and transplant patients. Others have illuminated the key role of hTEE in weaning support following routine cardiac surgery.
Hemodynamic stability is a daily challenge, particularly with the prevalence of RV dysfunction in a subset of patients. Clinical teams have developed hTEE integrated protocols to optimize care of VAD and ECMO patients.
Read on to learn how hTEE is proving invaluable in guiding the care of high-risk cardiac patients.
