Conference paper


Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was developed based on modern computer technology and it was introduced to the operative scene. We have used twodimensional color Doppler TEE as one of routine monitors during cardiac anesthesia, for continuous monitoring of cardiac function and decision-making. It has made the intraoperative management more understandable and safer, and made it possible to correct the abnormalities intraoperatively, reducing postoperative complication.
