Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is the biggest leap in hemodynamic monitoring, and provides distinct real time images of the heart. An evaluation by TEE may be required to obtain the most precise information to guide surgical intervention and pharmacological support or fluid administration in the perioperative period.

The purpose of this guide is to provide quick and convenient access to a selection of different TEE cross sections. The illustrated views are semischematic representations presented in their ideal shape.

The placement of TEE probe and the acquisition and interpretation of the information obtained from TEE are described, as well as abbreviations and reference limits of cardiac measurements and hemodynamic parameters.
