  • Abstract: Abstract : Purpose of review:

    To review the perioperative use of noncardiac transesophageal echocardiography in anesthesiology and to explore the current mechanisms of teaching and certification.

    Recent findings:

    Anesthesiologists frequently use echocardiography in many noncardiac situations with potential impact on outcomes. Certification has evolved to include those who use echocardiography in noncardiac situations. More advanced teaching tools have been developed for the learning of diagnostic and monitoring modality.

    Summary:

    Transesophageal echocardiography can have many helpful uses in perioperative patient care. This study summarizes many noncardiac uses, certification, and echocardiography education for anesthesiologists.
