Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA)
The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA) is an international member organization with cardiac, thoracic and vascular anesthesiologists that promotes excellence in clinical care, education, and research.
The SCA have collaborated with iTeachU to deliver to its members the SCA-On-Cue (Online Clinical Ultrasound and Echocardiography) Level 1 and Level 2 Course to physicians around the world. These comprehensive courses offer echocardiography (TTE and TEE) and other uses of clinical ultrasound including vascular access, lung ultrasound, ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, FAST and DVT assessment.

Also, SCA in conjunction with the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and iTeachU have collaborated to deliver the Basic Perioperative TEE program. This training and accreditation program complies with the provisions set out by the National Board of Echocardiography.
Testimonials – Basic Perioperative TEE Program
“I finished residency over 15 years ago. This program has been one of the best educational opportunities I had the honor to be a part of since that time. Thank you. The chapter on hemodynamics is one of the best written chapters I’ve read in quite a long time-succinct, informative and practical.” – Dr Joe Arndt
“I must admit that when I was finally able to access the tutorials I found them very informative. The topics were presented in a very easy to understand and retain format. This was supported by the structure of the assessments. I had “fun” doing this course and learned a bit in the process. I really liked the fact all of the echo studies were not perfect. This certainly mimics real life in that either because of body habitus or viewing conditions we cannot always have perfect studies. Thank you for your help in getting this going. I would definitely recommend this course to others.” – Dr Steven Schmidt
The Basic TTE (Basic Transthoracic Echocardiography) course has been designed to provide a good understanding in Basic Transthoracic Echocardiography.
The Basic Perioperative TEE program focuses on the basic hemodynamic state, ventricular function and valve pathology.
The perioperative ultrasound course (PoCUS) is a collaboration between SCA and iTeachU that provides education to help address the professional practice gaps found in the assessment.
The SCA-On-CUE Level 1 offers transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), surface ultrasound use and basic transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).
The SCA-On-CUE subject 1 tutorials form the building block for later subjects within the course. Subject 1 offers an overview of anatomy, physics, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography as well as artefact generation.
SCA-On-CUE subject 2 outlines the technique of using ultrasound to guide percutaneous procedures. Procedures will include vessel access, nerve blocks, and trauma-related procedures.
SCA-On-CUE subject 3 introduces Doppler Echocardiography to complement basic transthoracic echocardiography imaging.
SCA-On-CUE subject 4 expands the knowledge of transthoracic echocardiography by learning pathophysiology and assessment of ventricular function, including in diastolic function.
The SCA-On-CUE Level 2 Fast Track incorporates the important building block subjects from Level 1 with Level 2 into one course.
