The Basic Perioperative TEE program is a collaboration of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA) for anesthesiologists, emergency medicine, critical care physicians, researchers and other health-care professionals with an interest in anesthesiology. The Basic TEE program is offered to society members at this special price. 100 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ are available upon completion of all 100 cases.
The Basic Perioperative TEE program focuses on the basic hemodynamic state, ventricular function and valve pathology, which has been categorized into those that are likely to cause hemodynamic compromise or those that may not. By the end of this program, the student will be exposed to a wide variety of cardiac pathology.
This is an online program. Upon payment, the student will receive a “Getting Started” email with instructions on how to receive the program materials upon receipt of payment.
Program materials can be downloaded to iPad, Android or Windows tablets or can be accessed online using a browser. Downloading the app gives the student the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Once the program materials have been downloaded, the student will have access to all of the interactive media content even when offline.
