A Systematic Echography During Intubation Procedure to Predict Cardiovascular Collapse


Brief description of study

In the operating room, most intubation procedures (IP) are scheduled and performed on hemodynamiccaly stable patients. In the ICU, IP is frequently performed in emergent patients, because of unstable hemodynamics and/or acute respiratory failure, and complicated by a subsequent cardiovascular collapse. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) has become readily available in most ICUs for several years. Echocardiography enables to perform a noninvasive hemodynamic evaluation (cardiac function and volemia status).

We hypothesized that performing a TTE prior to IP may help to predict cardiovascular collapse and its components.
