  Purpose

Hypothesis: Goal-directed echocardiography by trained critical care physicians is equivalent to that of echocardiography technicians/cardiologists for the purpose of determining etiology (reason) of cardiopulmonary failure.


Condition Intervention

Procedure: Echocardiography

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Evaluating Critical Care Echocardiography in Patients With Cardiopulmonary Failure at the Time of Presentation

Further study details as provided by North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of left ventricular function [ Time Frame: within four hours of ICU admission ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will the assessment of left ventricular function by critical care physicians and echo techs be concordant?


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Presence of Pericardial Effusion and Severity [ Time Frame: within 4 hrs of ICU admission ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will the presence of pericardial effusion and severity from critical care physicians and echo techs be concordant?


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Right ventricle dysfunction [ Time Frame: within 4 hrs of ICU admission ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will presence of RV dysfunction with critical care physicians versus echo techs/cardiologists be concordant in our population?
