Cardiac Surgeon University Of Alberta Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
At the conclusion of this session participants will be able to:
have an increased awareness and understanding of the potential complications that can occur during cardiac surgery;
recognize and develop a differential diagnosis of uncommon intraoperative cardiac surgical events during cardiopulmonary bypass; and
develop a systematic approach to uncommon cardiopulmonary bypass crisis management scenarios.
This interactive session aims to expose trainees to uncommon but catastrophic intraoperative events that can be encountered during cardiac surgery. Through case-based discussions, this session will provide participants with an overall approach to crisis scenario management during cardiac surgery.
