Let's Be Clear

There's an alternative to blind TEE intubation

Introducing TEECAD

The world's first, FDA-cleared, disposable camera that seamlessly connects to a transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) probe, providing physicians real-time visualization for more efficient and effective probe placement for safer intubation.

With TEECAD, there is no need to navigate blind

TEE is the gold standard for imaging heart valves and atria, however physicians currently place TEE ultrasound probes blindly resulting in failed intubations that can lead to major complications such as esophageal or pharyngeal perforation.

TEECAD's real-time visualization provides precise and clear images during TEE probe placement. To learn more about the role of imaging in the TEE procedure, download our latest white paper. 

Rising demand for accurate and safe TEE probe placement 

The rise of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), mitral valve replacement (TMVR), and left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) procedures has led to over 650,000 TEE procedures annually in the U.S., growing at an annual rate of 7%.

Atraumatic Intubation

Ensure accurate and safe TEE probe placement with TEECAD's advanced fiberoptic camera, designed with a soft silicone barrier to provide atraumatic navigation in the esophogus.

Real-time Visualization

 No need to navigate blind - provides precise and clear images of the esophagus and potential obstructions or diseases for confidence during probe placement to support first pass intubation success.

Toward Zero Complications

 Supports healthcare systems striving for zero hospital-acquired complications.  TEE complications can be costly and life threatening.
