Adult Critical Care Series: Cardiothoracic Surgical Interventions

Course content focuses on the surgical interventions used in the treatment of cardiothoracic disease.

Participants will get a glimpse of some of the new procedures that are found in the larger medical centers such as the maze procedure for atrial fibrillation, valvular reconstruction and emergency treatment of aortic dissection as well as an overview of the basics.

All participants will leave with an excellent understanding of the physiological effects of cardiopulmonary bypass and the risks and complications of some of the common surgical interventions.
