Brief Summary:
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 or disease Intervention/treatment
Cardiopulmonary Failure Procedure: Echocardiography

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Evaluating Critical Care Echocardiography in Patients With Cardiopulmonary Failure at the Time of Presentation
Study Start Date : December 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : May 2013

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients in Cardiopulmonary Failure
patients in cardiopulmonary failure
Procedure: Echocardiography



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of left ventricular function [ Time Frame: within four hours of ICU admission ]
    Will the assessment of left ventricular function by critical care physicians and echo techs be concordant?


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Presence of Pericardial Effusion and Severity [ Time Frame: within 4 hrs of ICU admission ]
    Will the presence of pericardial effusion and severity from critical care physicians and echo techs be concordant?


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Right ventricle dysfunction [ Time Frame: within 4 hrs of ICU admission ]
    Will presence of RV dysfunction with critical care physicians versus echo techs/cardiologists be concordant in our population?
