View Suggestion on AnkiHub

amboss states “Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the initial test of choice for all patients with suspected IE. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is more invasive and is added in select cases ------ Indications for TEE include: Presence of high-risk features, TTE findings inconclusive or suggestive of IE, Concern for intracardiac complications (e.g., abscess)”

i think this card should be rewritten in text to include a specifier of TEE being more sensitive and add extra clarfiers to each card

amboss - “TEE is more sensitive (∼ 90%) than TTE (∼ 75%) and is more reliable in ruling out IE in patients with moderate-to-high pretest probability.”

will add and approve to both notes
