35th Annual International Symposium - 2017

The 35th Annual International Symposium: Clinical Update in Anesthesiology, Surgery and Perioperative Medicine was hosted on January 15-20, 2017 at the Marriott Resort, Casa Magna, in Cancun, Mexico.

International Faculty and Complimentary Workshops Course Directors were George Silvay, MD, PhD, Marc Stone, MD, Menachem Weiner, MD, and Andrew Goldberg, MD. The target audience was anesthesiologists; cardiothoracic, vascular, and general surgeons; cardiologists; intensivists; nurse anesthetists; physicians in-training; perfusionists; physician assistants; and nurses.

The event was designed to help busy professionals advance their knowledge and keep current by providing a review of innovations, recent advances, and best practices in cardiothoracic, vascular and general anesthesiology, surgery, perioperative medicine, and critical care. In addition, the event held four workshops on lung ventilation, regional block, difficult airways, and ECHO for interested participants. The overarching goals of the symposium were to enable participants to:

1. Describe and implement new diagnostic modalities, therapeutic agents and management strategies in the fields of cardiothoracic, vascular and general anesthesia, surgery, critical care, and perioperative medicine.

2. Recognize and implement best practice anesthetic management of patients with significant comorbidities.

3. Discuss the current and future management of patients with cardiac, thoracic and vascular pathophysiology.
