Postponed: Perioperative Ultrasound Symposium and Workshops

The University of Pittsburgh Physicians Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Center for Continuing Education will sponsor the Perioperative Ultrasound Symposium and Workshops. This meeting will focus on enhancing the knowledge and skills of physicians using point-of-care ultrasound with an emphasis on echocardiography, lung ultrasound, assessment of gastric contents and vascular ultrasound, as well as use of ultrasound to guide peripheral nerve blockade in the trunk and extremities. The program is notable for its comprehensive approach to the use of ultrasound for both diagnostic purposes and to guide specific therapeutic interventions.  This symposium consists of both workshops and lectures. Basic transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) bootcamp is intended to help noncardiac anesthesiologists to learn basic TEE skills to evaluate hemodynamic instability/hypoxemia during perioperative period. This is also aimed to prepare the trainees and physicians for the National Board of Echocardiography basic TEE examination.

This CME offering is designed to unite anesthesiologists, surgeons, intensivists, and critical care, emergency medicine, and other acute care and perioperative medicine physicians and trainees in a collaborative educational program.

Sunday, June 14 at 7:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
