Critical care transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is useful in characterizing shock states encountered by intensivists when transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) gives insufficient information or when more detailed analysis of cardiac structures is needed. It is safe, feasible, and easy to learn and is a recommended component of advanced critical care echocardiography. This article reviews critical care TEE regarding training, equipment, comparison with TTE, indications, safety, and standard views of critical care TEE. It should be considered a companion article to a recent two-part series in CHEST that focused on advanced critical care TTE. Included with this article is an online supplement that has a representative series of critical care TEE images with clinical commentary.
