Upon publication, the Savage/Aronson text immediately became the definitive TEE reference. The Second Edition has been significantly reorganized to meet new demands in the market. The first section covers material relevant to the basic certification just being implemented by the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists. The second section covers advanced applications relevant to the current certification. Coverage includes a new section on critical care issues and applications and new chapters on echocardiography for noncardiac surgery and vascular access using TEE. Other highlights include new material on epicardial and epiaortic imaging and more correlative transthoracic imaging. A companion Website includes the fully searchable text and an image bank.
