Increasing numbers of training courses and accreditation processes aimed at non-cardiac anaesthetists and intensivists are available. Echocardiography uses ultrasound to create real-time images of the heart, and Doppler to assess blood flow and tissue motion. Echocardiography is usually performed using the transthoracic or transoesophageal routes. The first textbook of echocardiography was published in 1972, heralding its acceptance into mainstream cardiology practice. Over the past 20 years, anaesthetists have incorporated transoesophageal echocardiography into peri-operative practice for patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

The increased availability of highspecification, affordable ultrasound equipment has been a necessary precursor. There is also increasing acceptance of the concept of focused pointof-care echocardiography in which a non-specialist echocardiographer performs a limited examination in order to exclude or detect major pathology and to assess haemodynamic parameters.
