- •TEE allows aortic dissection diagnosis as a cause of cardiac arrest during CPR.
- •Aortic dissection is associated with poor resuscitation outcome.
- •Diagnosis of aortic dissection helps to determine treatment modality.
Abbreviations:AD (aortic dissection), CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), ED (emergency department), OR (odds ratio), POC (point-of-care), TEE (transesophageal echocardiography), TTE (transthoracic echocardiography)
