In 2009, the Critical Care NetWork of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) in partnership with La Société de réanimation de langue française (SRLF) selected a panel of experts to characterize competence in critical care ultrasonography (CCUS) and suggest a consensus statement on competence in CCUS. CCUS may be divided into general CCUS (thoracic, abdominal, and vascular), and echocardiography (basic and advanced). For each component, the experts defined the specific skills that the intensivist should acquire to be competent in that aspect of CCUS. They, also, defined a reasonable minimum standard statement to serve as a guide for the intensivist in achieving proficiency in the field. The present article focuses on the consensus statement concerning the evaluation of the competences (basic level) in critical care echocardiography.
