Abstract

Echodynamics refers to the use of echocardiography as hemodynamic tool mostly in intensive and acute care settings. It implies a smooth drift from the classic cardiology use to a more critical care adjusted use. A more personalized approach is advocated in critical care, and echo is one way to reach such goal. Correct application necessitates optimum understanding, interpretation, and finally integration into patients’ clinical management. As more critical care doctors are advancing from basic focused echo examinations to a more advanced one, this article is trying to underlie many pitfalls of critical care echocardiography in order to guide better practice.
