Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is an invasive procedure that is undertaken by a suitably qualified physician, with assistance from a nurse and a sonographer. This SIMTICS module teaches you how to prepare for and assist with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). It also covers how to perform stress echocardiography, where the heart is imaged under simulated exercise conditions. The interactive simulator provides three scenarios that test your ability to assist with TEE and to perform stress echocardiography. Online simulations offer a safe practice environment and also give you the opportunity to try out procedures that you might not otherwise experience. This module is ideal if you are studying for the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) registry exams.
The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:
