Perioperative Medicine: 2024 Video Recordings Package

Internal Medicine Meeting Recordings

Expert clinician-educators will initially discuss preoperative anesthesia essentials, selection of validated cardiac risk assessment tools, venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in the most frequently performed surgeries, and antiplatelet agent management in patients with cardiac disease undergoing noncardiac surgery. Interspersed between these presentations will be clinical vignettes that complement the presentations and expand the topics discussed. The second phase of the course will be directed at the postoperative issues that face the medical consultants. These will include postoperative anesthesia issues; delirium and frailty assessment and treatments; postoperative cardiac complications including myocardial infarction, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation; and the appropriate use of perioperative anticoagulants. Each of these areas will be followed by clinical vignettes related to additional issues facing medical consultants in the postoperative period.

This collection of virtual lectures will also cover:

  • the assessment and management of patients with medical comorbidities undergoing inpatient surgical procedures.
  • guidelines and best practices for common anesthesia-related issues, preoperative cardiac risk assessment, and medications.
  • preoperative validated risk assessment tools, strategies to mitigate risk, and management of patients with a variety of pre- and postsurgery cardiac problems.
  • management of cardiac-indicated antiplatelet agents and the appropriate use of direct oral anticoagulants in the perioperative period, which will include rescue and reversal agents for emergent surgery.
  • key management strategies for assessing frailty or delirium.
