There are numerous institutions in the Triangle area that use transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in their operating rooms. This conference series will provide an opportunity to allow local anesthesiologists with an interest in TEE to come together quarterly to expand their knowledge in this area. Subject matter will vary from lectures on fundamental principles to discussion of specific case examples. The location of the event will initially alternate between UNC and Duke, and later include neighboring institutions like Wake Med and Rex Hospitals.
This education activity is designed for physicians involved in perioperative care of patients with cardiovascular disease who desire to enhance their diagnostic skills with transesophageal echocardiography. Participating physicians should have a basic understanding of techniques of echocardiography in practice or through other instructional courses. Physicians who plan to take the National Board of Echocardiography examination in perioperative TEE will benefit from participating in this activity.
The Duke University School of Medicine adheres to ACCME Essential Areas, Standards, and Policies regarding industry support of continuing medical education. Disclosure of the planning committee and faculty's commercial relationships will be made known at the start of the activity. Speakers are required to openly disclose any limitations of data and/or any discussion of any off-label, experimental or investigational uses of drugs or devices in their presentations.
