Ultrasound guided procedures for central line placement and for regional anesthesia is fast becoming a standard of practice. Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is a method for monitoring hemodynamic status that utilizes the properties of ultrasound to visualize cardiac structures, assess global contractility, and estimate volume status. The effectiveness in using TEE in non-cardiac anesthesia settings is documented in the literature. Using TEE to guide interventions is not only applicable for use during anesthesia, but also as an adjunct to practice in critical care settings.
