The 1st Annual Perioperative MCS Symposium is a 2-day hybrid course. The symposium will take advantage of modern educational concepts to provide clinically relevant material through an inter-professional and multidisciplinary approach to the perioperative management of patients undergoing mechanical circulatory support. In addition, a complementary advanced critical care echocardiography (CCE) workshop will be offered. The highly interactive approach puts the learner in the position of the clinician needing to make simple, thorough, and complex decisions commonly faced when providing mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and utilizing CCE.
Multidisciplinary Approach to Clinical Decision-Making
There will be greater emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach to complex clinical decision-making.
Attendees will experience highly interactive learning in small groups (1:4 ratio). Hands-on training will be used to expose the learner to a range of typical diagnostic approaches to specific scenarios with advanced CCE in refractory shock and ultrasound procedural guidance.
Special sessions with groups of patients will provide an opportunity for their education on perioperative complications in MCS.
