The mission of the Society’s CME program is to provide anesthesiologists, through a broad variety of educational meetings, enduring materials, and electronic media, with the information and skills that will reinforce their knowledge base and introduce new concepts and clinical practice skills involving the perioperative care of patients with cardiovascular and thoracic disease. It is expected that these educational opportunities will enhance the practitioners’ clinical practice skills.

SCA 2018 Echo Week on Demand:

At the conclusion of these educational sessions, the participant will be able to:

  • Define the physics which underlie clinical ultrasound technology specifically related to two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) image formation and Doppler applications.
  • Identify normal and abnormal left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) systolic and diastolic function.
  • Define ultrasound applications to identify normal cardiac and vascular anatomy, common artifacts, anatomical variants, congenital heart and pericardial disease processes can be identified and managed with cardiac ultrasound.
  • Define ultrasound applications to provide a non-invasive and comprehensive assessment of the native aortic, mitral, pulmonic and tricuspid valve and implanted prosthetic valves.
  • Define the role comprehensive perioperative TEE plays in surgical decision making in patients with mitral valve disease, aortic valve disease, and respiratory or heart failure undergoing surgical procedures to address these disease states.
