Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course is designed for the clinician who utilizes echocardiography in their practice in the perioperative and critical care arena for cardiac and interventional procedures. The course will focus on common clinical dilemmas where echocardiography can play a role in diagnosis and treatment. Case-based presentations, practice guidelines, hands-on workshops, and small-group discussions will be utilized to review two-dimensional transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography, spectral and color Doppler, and 3D echocardiography techniques. The heart team model for new interventional procedures including transcatheter valves will be discussed and implementation of such a model explained in a multidisciplinary approach.

Target Audience

This course is intended for anesthesiologists, cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, critical care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, and sonographers who utilize echocardiography in their practice in the perioperative and critical care arena.
