Web-based lecture series under development
The SCA is developing a web-based lecture series for the Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellows and other SCA members who would like to experience this exciting new offering. The lectures consist of topics that may not be readily available at each fellow’s institution. The topics that will be covered include: Adult Congenital Heart Disease, Coagulation Management & Heparin Alternatives, Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, Ethical Issues in Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Practice, Heart Transplantation and Mechanical Assist Devices, Non-cardiac Major Vascular Surgery, Professionalism in the CT ORs, Management of CPB, Pathophysiology and Prevention of Adverse CNS Outcomes, Pathophysiology and Prevention of Adverse Renal Outcomes, Anesthesiology in the Electrophysiology and Cath Lab, Research Methods and Statistical Analysis, and Practice Management for the Cardiothoracic Anesthesiologist.
Each of these topics will be peer-reviewed and presented by a renowned speaker for that specialty. Each talk will be on SCA’s web site and will conclude with an open discussion of the topic with a colleague.
More information can be found on the SCA web site (www.scahq.org) by scrolling down to “Cardiothoracic Fellowship” section on the bottom left of the home page. Click on: “Fellowship Lecture Series”, then click on “Lecture Series” which will have the lectures posted. We anticipate having them in place by April of 2010. We look forward to the addition of this new feature.
