In 2009, the Critical Care Network of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) in partnership with La Sociéte de Reanimation de Langue Française selected a panel of experts to characterize competence in critical care ultrasonography. The task force developed a consensus and made recommendations concerning the qualifications in ultrasonography. Experts have identified specific skills that intensivit should acquire, by setting a minimum standard for the realisation and control of ultrasound. Last year, we published in the present journal the results of this consensus conference concerning the "basic echocardiography" for intensivit. This year, we summarize here the results of the consensus conference and its conclusions on the assessment of advanced level skills to practice echocardiography in intensive care.
