Since the major role of TEE for IE is usually to assist in duration of Abx Rx (rarely for urgent surgical decision making), it might make sense to at least delay the TEE (& monitor patient clinical status).

Case by case request Rare clinical circumstance that would require TEE in COVID or high risk PUI Use CTA for previous TEE indications (abscess, LAA eval, etc) If TEE needed, only one senior operator - no trainee / fellow- and COVID-dedicated system

I think you are being smart and this is a good Q. This is evidence based from the perspective of 'contamination' and appropriate 'decontamination' steps. However, I do not have data on 'effectiveness' or 'viral loads' before and after this process. Thanks.

I understand the pulmonary physiology, but what about the need to have multiple people gown (eg use PPE) more frequently & expose them to COVID more often for the management of prone vs supine?
