The 16th Annual Multidisciplinary Cardiovascular and Thoracic (CVT) Critical Care Conference is designed to advance knowledge and expertise in CVT critical care and enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS). Its goal is to bring together the entire team of health professionals who provide care for patients undergoing CVT operations and interventional procedures.
This 2.5-day conference will address the complex nature of critical care and ERAS cases, incorporating lectures, panel discussions, case-based breakouts, and original scientific abstracts. Leading experts will present new concepts, technologies, management protocols, and clinical experiences in their respective disciplines. New for 2019, a half-day session will be dedicated to ERAS, giving attendees the chance to learn from the experiences of leading centers in optimizing preoperative and postoperative care to improve outcomes.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply the latest concepts, technologies, and developments in CVT critical care and ERAS to optimize patient outcomes
- Describe the latest protocols to provide safe and effective cardiac, respiratory, and renal support
- Explain the importance of the multidisciplinary team in providing optimal CVT critical care
