The Comprehensive 2023 Anesthesiology Update
Cardiac, Regional, Office-Based, Thoracic, Obstetric, Neuro, and Pediatric
Anesthesiology Update held between May 8–12, 2023.
In the past year, there have been a number of very significant clinical changes that affect the practice of anesthesiology. This comprehensive CME program provides a special and timely opportunity for anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists and others with interest in the field to hear directly from world-renowned specialists and master clinicians about these changes.
The curriculum at Anesthesiology Update 2023 ensures not only that attendees leave with a comprehensive understanding of the latest advances, risk mitigation strategies and anesthesiology guidelines, but also with specific recommendations to incorporate these updates into practice.
The format is engaging and attendees are encouraged to pose questions of the national and international experts who will be delivering the updates and education at this event.
Updates, best practices and new guidelines cover:
- Myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery
- Advances in transfusion practices
- The processed EEG: scientific foundation – practical application – clinical limitations
- Coagulation monitoring during surgery
