Concise Critical Appraisal: Development of the CCEeXAM

Critical care clinicians are increasingly using echocardiography to rapidly and noninvasively diagnose shock, hemodynamic instability, and respiratory failure; evaluate cardiac function; and track response to interventions. This Concise Critical Appraisal dives into a Critical Care Medicine article about the development of the first Examination of Special Competence in Critical Care Echocardiography (CCEeXAM). Learn about the certification process and how this skill can improve your practice.
